"In second grade I said I wanted to be a kindergarten teacher and an artist. Everything you do in life shapes who you are, so do it all."
Family, Children & Fine Arts
As a child I took art camp every summer, sewed a swim suit at the age of seven and began carrying a camera with me in seventh grade. High school brought four years of drawing and painting and that's where I fell in love with portraits. But at that time they were all oil paintings or chalk pastel portraits! I also coached gymnastics and loved working with children. I graduated with a BS in Graphic Design from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities and worked as a graphic artist for a year but I missed working with children. That led me to become a certified EC-4 teacher here in the state of Texas after getting married and moving here in 2006. I happily taught kindergarten for seven wonderful years and have now been exclusively focused on my family and photography since our second son was born in 2014. We couldn't be more excited to welcome a sweet little sister joining our family in August! She'll be the toughest little cookie around!
I specialize in lifestyle and documentary photography using natural light. My sessions are all inclusive meaning your gallery will include all the images worthy of my artistic style from our session together. I aim to capture the love and connection within your family. No two families are the same and that's what makes you amazing! Together we will decide on a location that works best for your family. Newborn sessions are always in held in the comfort of your own home. I am a huge believer that family comes first and for that reason I do not shoot any family sessions during the month of December. All family sessions in mind of holidays are held in October and November.
I'd be honored to capture your family, I hope you'll be in touch soon!
