Hey, I'm


I love capturing the artful beauty that I see in a parent's relationship with their children. As a mother myself, I love helping other parents to identify their unique family values and then capturing them in photo and film.

I'm a filmmaker, turned smalltown TV Commercial producer, turned wedding and family photographer, turned Parenthood Photo + Video Creator.


I fell in love with my best friend's brother.

Our story is a rare one indeed. I met my husband when we were eight years old. He was my best friend's little brother and it wasn't many years before we started crushing on each other. It wasn't a fairy tale by any means, but eventually we got together officially when we were 25 and married in 2016! Now we have a beautiful incredibly smart little girl and we're loving life as parents!

These are my greatest gifts in life.

This is me and the people most important to me, my husband and our little girl! I am so happy to share this with you, knowing that as your photo + video creator, I get the privilege to see into your world too! It's an honor to be the one to document your journey through parenthood. It starts with a get-to-know-you meeting and ends with the most treasured family films and photos you'll ever have.
