Working with Kids
I now realize that it’s my extensive experience working with children sets me apart from other photographers. I have a lot of tricks in my back pocket to help even the most camera-shy of children feel safe and comfortable enough in front of my lens to share a few genuine smiles.
And as a former teacher, I am well educated on attention spans and sparking engagement. I know how much time I have before the kids lose interest, so my family sessions include lots of fun and lots of movement!
For seven years, I worked as an elementary school teacher, teaching kindergarten and first grade. I love working with kids!
Working with Parents
As Mom to two toddlers of my own, I get the stress (and lack of time) that parents are feeling. That’s why I make the booking process as easy as possible.
I believe you deserve a stress-free, luxury experience from beginning to end that culminates in candid and beautiful images of your children + family.
I make it easy to book (without emails or phone calls), plan (with my Pinterest board with outfit suggestions), shoot (with an experienced pro), and get prints (I’ll do the ordering for you.)
One thing you should know: I am a passionate advocate for prints over pixels.
Once a year, my family goes through old photos. My dad has a huge picture of himself as a baby and my mom kept our family photos where I am wearing this oversized floral dress and we love looking at them. We’re able to have this fun bonding time together because our photos are printed. We can sit together, passing them around, talking, laughing, and reminiscing. Passing a phone just isn't the same.
Photographers who only send you digital images are really only doing half of their job. The other half is to provide you with beautiful and priceless printed artwork for your family legacy.
This is why I specialize in helping families design albums and wall galleries for their homes.
Because no one has ever come over to your home and said, "I love that flash drive in your junk drawer" or “Let's take fifteen minutes and go through your Facebook page searching for those family photos you took."
