DOCUMENTING THE JOY-FILLED, HONEST MOMENTS OF THE EXTRAORDINARY & THE EVERYDAY

I’ve been documenting families and births since A. Lincoln was a baby and I believe that when we embrace the messy, the day-to-day grit of living, we truly see how our love shines, even in the darkest of times. My deep love for humanity, the honest mess, the unconventional –for the raw, tough work of becoming, and BEING parents, sits at the at the heart of my documentary work.

I make photos of your babies. Of your heart. Of this here and now that you live in. However ordinary and messy it is.

All families have a story to tell. Let me help tell the beauty of yours.

So after the dust settles. When you have moved past your wedding albums, when you realize that the dress, the tux, the bouquets, symbolized more than just a marriage, but a rite of passage into a deeper love; I want to be there to help you fill the photos albums of your most ordinary and extraordinary days.

After years and years of complicated packages that seamed straightforward, but utterly lacking in options, I have streamlined my pricing so that you have straightforward options and more interaction with me before your session –my doula heart loves holding space for all families (and their birth stories), no matter how they came into being. Getting to know you and your story is integral to my process.
