Want to Learn about Hair & Makeup for your Portrait Session?

Everything You Need to Know About: Professional Hair and Makeup There’s one question that I ask each and every one of my maternity mamas:  Have you thought about hair and makeup? It wouldn’t matter if I was staring at Gisele Bundchen  or a mama who had never owned more than tinted lip gloss in her life, I think every mama deserves to look and feel their best for their portrait session. To help with the know-how and the how-to, I introduce to you (drumroll….) Crystal from C-Style Beauty! Crystal is one of my and my client’s favorite hair and makeup

Opening Soon: 2022 Family Session Booking

Set Your Clocks!     Booking for 2022 family portraits opens a week from today!   Having a full session calendar is bittersweet. It brings me so much joy to know that families enjoy working with me year after year. I love getting to know you, your littles, what makes your family “your” family. But it also means my availability fills up so quickly, I can’t always work everyone in. I’ve had dozens of families I wasn’t able to work with this year, so I’m opening things up a bit earlier to help everyone get the month they prefer next



For me, photographs are so much more than a moment captured on camera—they’re memories. That’s why with every session, I strive to produce beautiful, timeless memories of your family that you can hang on your wall, place on your mantle, or tuck away in your wallet so you can relive them whenever you want.
