This is the perfect time to take some time and get in front of the camera with just you and your babies.

Sessions include your children, and are focused on your motherly connection with them, and them with you.

These are the best years of your life. Family portraits can be anything from a Day in Your Life, to a field, beach, or mountain setting.

They are focused on your joy, tenderness, and connection as a family, and documented with intention.

Nothing is rushed. Children have time to warm up to me, so I can get their real personalities, and giggles.

Motherhood is a journey close to my heart. These sessions include your immediate family members, and can be a mix of studio and on-location portraits.. These sessions are also light-focused, minimal in nature, and feminine.

Lifestyle newborn sessions take place in the comfort of your own home or my baby-ready South Charlotte studio. All the focus is on your precious baby and family. I will guide you every step of the way to make sure you feel prepared going into our session, my goal is to make you and your family feel relaxed and comfortable during our time together. Sessions are light-focused, minimal, and emotive.

For over 10 years, I've photographed families and newborns in the Charlotte, NC area.

I'm passionate about two things: light and the family story.

I use a photojournalist approach to my photography that helps to create not only gorgeous photos, but real portraits that you will look back on and feel instantly connected to - generations from now.

Everyone's story is different, but I would love to document yours.
