the studio 

We just added this set and we couldn't be more in love!  It will be a beautiful backdrop for all of clients.  The combination of fabrics, textures and greenery gives a little nod to both BoHo and Farmhouse styles, but it's big on emotions.  You will get all the feels when displaying images of your sweet family on this cozy set!

We just added this set and we couldn't be more in love!  It will be a beautiful backdrop for parents and newborns, sitters, one-year-olds and small families.  In other words, it will be perfect for all of our clients!

Your comfort is very important to us!  We have coffee, water and snacks for the kids. A TV can entertain them while they wait for their turn.

For photographers, headbands can become an obsession and I am on the verge!  They add the sweetest detail to newborn photos.  In case you can't tell, I also have a thing for blankets, quilts and beautiful rugs.  These textiles add layers of color and warmth to any session.  Our studio offering wouldn't be complete without them!

We are constantly adding cute items to our accessory collection and unique decor to our prop assortment.  Your portraits will compliment any style of interior design you have in your home!

I add new swaddles, props, backdrops, etc all the time.  I can't help myself!!  Everywhere I look I see things that will help me create beautiful images for my clients.  I love to incorporate sentimental items from families as well but if nothing seems fitting, no problem.  You can walk into the studio feeling confident we have everything you need to make this portrait experience fun, memorable and stress free!

hello!

MY HUSBAND

PUGS

My best friend set me up on a blind date to another friend's wedding.  That blind date turned into my husband in 2013.  

My family has a thing for pugs, or really any dog with a smashed face! Pailey, our 13-year-old pug, loves to eat and sleep...she has the life!  Joe and I bought her together and shared custody until we got married :).

#BOYMOM

On Joe and I's first wedding anniversary, we brought our first baby, Braxton (now 6-years-old), home!  In December 2017, we gave Braxton a late Christmas gift, a little brother, Jordan!

EDUCATION

I have a BA in Journalism and have worked as a photojournalist for a newspaper, and high school teacher. 

BUSINESS

I have been in business since 2009.  The studio opened in 2013!  I have been blessed with loyal clients and tons of memories!
