Every photography session is custom, designed around you and your family, your interests, your clothing and your style. I desire to photograph your family, their personalities and your special moments as a beautifully captured moment in time. From booking to photo delivery, your experience will be fun, enjoyable and stress free. I'm excited to get to know you, let's talk!

Can you really get enough images in 30 minutes?
What are your favorite sessions to photograph?
I do not offer completely free military homecoming sessions because, with 4 young children, any sessions I commit to mean that I have to pay a babysitter to watch my children for my commute to and from the homecoming as well as for the, often undetermined, length of the homecoming session.
Being a military wife I know how extremely important it is to capture these moments which is why I charge a $50 fee for homecoming sessions up to 1 hour. If the session lasts more than 1 hour I will also invoice $15 for every additional hour I am waiting with you for your service member to come home. This is simply to compensate me for added babysitter time.
I am happy to be a second shooter at any wedding but I do not provide primary photographer services for weddings. Send me an email so we can discuss the cost for adding me as a secondary shooter on your special day!
Caesar is my Canon 6D Mark III. Yeah, I named him. He's a beauty and I love using him as my primary shooter. I also have Tessa, my Canon T2i, that has been my trusty side kick since 2011! I also swap between my 50mm portrait lens and my two telescoping lens options.
In short, no. BUT, I can't guarantee image quality of the print if you take your digital images to retail print shops. I do offer the option to buy prints directly through this website and all products are fulfilled by an amazing, high quality, reputable company that I have done business with and used for my own personal printing, for years! If you need help placing and order, please just contact me.
In short, YES! The long answer is - if your session goes more than 15 minutes over the agreed on booked session time then you will may be charged for that extra time - specifically if clients or participants are late, etc. If you decide the day of that you would like longer coverage, just ask and when your remaining balance is due I will simply tack on the additional session time to your invoice.
I am a mom of 4 young kids, I love capturing kiddos and families in a small timeframe as to not pull teeth and make the experience horrible! With gentle guidance from me, I promise we can get tons of beautiful images of you, your family, and any wiggly little ones you bring along!
I absolutely adore capturing little kiddos in their natural personalities and silliness without forcing poses but if I had to pic my absolute favorite types of sessions they would be:
- Military Sessions: Homecomings, Promotion Ceremonies, Retirements or other Military Events
- Sacraments: Baptisms, First Holy Communion, Masses, Funerals, Priestly Ordinations, Vows... all the Catholic sacraments!
- Brand new little babies when they meet their siblings!
