all about me, and what to expect!
I grew up with a camera in my hand in the freezing cold town of North Pole, Alaska. Yep. You read that right! It's a real place! I remember my mom would always buy me those little disposable cameras to take around with me on family vacations, and I couldn't WAIT to get home to get the film developed. I took several photography courses in high school and college, and fell in love with the capturing all the little moments. My husband and I spent almost 4 years on the island of St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands, and this time really fed my love of photography, and helped my passion grow! I fell in love with the magic of water and the ocean, and continue to seek that magic in Austin.
My dad grew up in San Antonio, Texas, and funny enough, so did my husband (even though we didn't meet until he moved to Alaska! Crazy how life works like that!). We would go to Texas every year for Christmas, and I have developed such an attachment to the Central Texas area. It feels like home to me. When my husband got word that he was getting transferred to Austin, I was overjoyed. I cannot wait to capture all of the beautiful families and mommas in Austin and throughout all of Texas (yes babes! I travel!). Southern sunsets are my absolute favorite!
I have been taking photos for almost 10 years, and I am so excited to share my gift with all of you. You have made my dreams come true!
I'm happy to see you

Once you are booked with me, I will make sure that we pick a time and location that will suit your needs and that will make your images look amazing!
During your session I will guide you with prompts and poses, and will stand back and let you be yourselves! all while capturing every precious moment. every single client i've had has left their session saying: "wow! That was so easy and fun!"
I take great care of your images, and make sure that they are safe! As soon as I get home from your session, i back up all of your images onto an external hard drive, and i do not remove the images from my memory card until your gallery is in your hands! i deliver all of your sneak peeks the night of your session, and your entire gallery will be delivered into a private online gallery within 1-3 days! how amazing is that?!
