I love meeting people and making new friends! I am a wife, a mother, a sister, a daughter, a granddaughter - but I love my friends just the same! I love barbeque, chocolate chip cookies and my golden retriever Marley Grace! You can catch me at the pool in the Summer and all tucked away inside in the Winter... I hate being cold!
I work by appointment only. Due to the custom nature of my business, I can only offer a select number of sessions per week and am often booked nine months in advance. Your session will last approximately 2-3 hours. I am closed on Satruday and Sunday.
clothing & props...
Especially for newborns - feel free to bring special items that you would like to have in your photographs. This could be something you owned as child or something new... like a special toy, knitted hat or blanket. No need for lots of clothes... Wraps and swaddles are most comfy for baby - But if you have a special outfit that fits - lets do it!
No more than 7 days after your session, I will let you know that your proofs are online in a private gallery that is password protected. They will be available for 14 days from the day I call or email you. A hard copy set of your proofs is available for sale once your $300 minimum order has been placed. Ask me for a sample when you book your session! You can also purchase a thumbdrive of the entire online gallery for $1000 after you have met the $300 minimum.
I will provide you with a limited number of low resolution watermarked digital image sneak peeks on my personal Facebook page.... Please in turn respect my work by not screen capturing, altering or printing these images - Once you have placed an order, I will gladly sell you full res digital images for $100.00 each or $1000 for the full gallery (once you have met the $300 minimum requirement)- you can print and use these images on your social media at your discretion. Thank you.
I am not going to bore you with the sappy story about how I have always loved photography or how my children inspired me to start my business, but I will tell you that I am grateful to my clients for allowing me to capture memories for them and having fun getting to know them. I love fun colors, expressive eyes, timeless stares, laughs, smiles, unique angles, feet and all of the little details!
I love what I do and believe I have one of the coolest professions! I get to document special moments for families, I get to create something that you will have for years to come, something that could be passed around HUNDREDS of years from now.
I like to color outside the lines!! So, if you think I'm cool enough to be your photographer, you are in for a lot of fun! I can be traditional, modern, classy, fun, festive and unique all with sprinkles of Love!! I love to chat a bit with my clients before hand to discuss how to make their session uniquely theirs!
To ensure I am able to be there for my family I have chosen to have a home studio. I don't just a throw a backdrop up next to the dining room table. You will find my studio relaxing and laid back, complete with everything that is necessary when those smash cake sessions get a little crazy!! I have found that my clients are able to make themselves at home while watching me create beautiful memories.
I feel another thing that sets me apart is that have fully invested in my trade. I am NOT someone who got a cool new camera for Christmas and now have a business. I have been a photographer for over 15 years. I pay for my business licenses and I pay my taxes. I am always learning and staying on top with the latest equipment.... I invest in myself and my business so that I earn the right to ask you to invest in me.
I have a wide variety of props, headbands, hats, bow ties, pettiskirts, bloomers etc. This however does not mean you should not bring your own items. I LOVE to meet a fellow Etsy addict. :)
A few years ago I swore I'd never text and now I'm a texting fool so feel free to call me, email me or text me. Either way I look forward to meeting and working with you.
