Asheville, NC The mountains were calling us
The Brown FAmily
The Brown family is by far one of my favorite families to photograph. I originally met Samantha when she booked a session, having seen my photos through the sacred group that I hold dear to my heart .... online bst. After that first meeting, the stars aligned, and we've been besties ever since. Rarely a day goes by when we don't chat. I love this family, and their Samantha's similar passions and loves for all things photography, pretty dresses, and all the matching accessories to make life complete. If you haven't noticed yet.....you'll see a lot of these guys around this page.
The Kennedy family
I had such a beautiful session with this gorgeous family in the wildflowers of Dogwood Farms. Have I ever mentioned how much I love this state we live in? The array of stunning settings is unbelievable!
Falls Lake, Durham, NC
The Danner Family
This sweet family has helped me to create two of my favorite family sessions ever! How could they not create magic with these adorable children, and this kind momma and daddy. They seriously have some sort of powers to make the most stunning portraits I have ever seen!
The Roman Family
The Roman family contacted me for family photos while their entire family was in town for the holidays. I have to say, this is my very favorite extended family session to date!
Falls Lake Winter Session
The Yunker Family
I can't be sure if the magic of these sessions is directly from this family (which would be my first guess), or if it's from the location. We had so much fun dancing and giggling the evening away.
NC Wildflower Fields
The Marshall Family
This gorgeous family came in from out of town, like so many of my amazing families do. We had the most perfect evening in the wildflowers. The girls were so adorable, and incredibly sweet. I had these outfits all ready for them to go for the session, and the only thing that I had been missing for a session of my own was a few additional daughters. How lucky am I that I get to dress little girls up like this and capture their moments. These should truly have a place on the walls for a lifetime!
NC Wildflower Fields
The Seske Family
Look at how beautiful and perfect this family is. We truly had so. much fun playing in the wildflowers. From the coordination to their outfits, to the way the kids played together and with mom and dad, these guys appear to have it all perfectly together. I was taking notes to check back on later. ;)
WRAL Azalea Gardens....with hydrangeas in bloom
The Webber Family
These guys are new to town and needed a photographer to capture their little one's birthday photos, and the early days of their pregnancy. Isn't she just glowing by the way? Well the session was a success.....even with a toddler who doesn't love the camera. I can't wait to watch this sweet family grow over the years.
Summer time at falls lake
The Almeida Family
The sweet and beautiful Almeida family came to me for the second time, and I can say, they just keep on getting more and more beautiful every time that I see them! I love so much growing with my families and having the honor of capturing their memories of all that lies in front of my lens.

breathtaking • moments • captured
I want to share your moments, your memories, your love for your babies. I want to capture every little snuggle, all the cuddles and hugs, the laughs and the giggles. I even love those big emotions, the tears, the tempers, everything that makes your moments yours. I want to see that perfect and the imperfect that makes up YOU. I know how you crave for that from me. You need that from what I can give to you. There are so few things in life that will hold the value of a photograph. A moment frozen in time. A perfect memory, otherwise gone. Let's do this together.....
CONTACT: You make contact with me to inquire about scheduling a photography session. I receive your inquiry and schedule a phone consultation. This way we can discuss any questions that you may have about scheduling and setting up you session. We discuss dates and style of your dream session. If you're not available on the phone, we'll chat via text or email. I am pretty flexible. We can work around what's best for both of us.

3. ask me Anything - PREPARATION FOR YOU SESSION
I show you several different options for locations to take your photos. You receive a digital welcome packet with all the information that is needed for planning your portrait fine art purchases. I also give you a little background on what to wear, and the beautiful client closet that I have available to you to use as you'd like, with my guidance. love to assist you with clothing ideas, coordination with your family and suggestions for where to purchase your outfits.....or how to use what you already have.

I want only the very best for you family art, and will assist in any way I can to create the perfect look for you, your family, and for the artwork that will be hanging in your home for generations to come.
4. THE PHOTO SESSION
We meet at an established location to photograph your portrait session. Depending on the type of session you have booked. The majority of sessions are set up early evening before sunset. Since moving to North Carolina, I have found a few locations that work beautifully for early morning light as well. this works especially well for families who worry about little ones with early bedtimes. The lighting is the most complimentary to my style closest to sunrise and sunset, and I insist that you have only the best for your photos. I will work with you to see what is the best time for your family, keeping in mind my artistic vision for your final portrait.
5. AFTER THE PORTRAIT SESSION:
Approximately 6 weeks following your portraits, I will set up a gallery viewing sessions with you. 10-40 photos will be presented for your selection, depending on your session. You will have custom wall designs, albums, wall art as well as digital options available for purchase.
ARCHIVING: All final photos that have been purchased at your session are archived in my database. Photos not chosen will be purged yearly from my database
