Family Bonds.


I've experienced stages in life that seem eternal but in retrospective, realize just how fleeting they really are.  As a parent, the time warp feels even more intense, so I've learned it's incredibly important to document everything from the silly expressions and interesting clothing choices, to the smallest details that might otherwise be forgotten.  I want to appreciate & remember exactly how special & sweet each stage truly is...  don't you agree?

That's why I believe it's imperative to hire a photographer who can witness your family & document your lives in an authentic and thoughtful way.  You can count on me to capture your family's love...  I enjoy studying the depths of your family dynamics in order to take beautiful photos, while keeping the session light-hearted and fun for everyone.  No pressure, just treasure.  Let's connect and I'll help you find the perfect setting & activity for our session together. 

Here's some inspiration to get you started...

In the beautiful surroundings of the South Yuba River State Park, family bonding was the main focus of this special day in the beautiful light of Spring.

A stroll around beautiful downtown Nevada City with the Morattos; capturing toothy smiles that will at over time be a sweet memory and the playful & deep love that bonds this amazing family together.

An intimate home session with the Crowley Family, capturing the excitement & the calm of having a brand new little being to share your life and love with... plus all the little details that help tell the beginning of a new chapter.

Along for the ride at the Train Museum with the Mikal Family, getting silly and enjoying the day in the warm sunshine.  With so many fun personalities, this was an easy-going experience to be a part of...

Fun at the park in the Sonoma Plaza with the Schuh Family, with a focus on the capturing the children.  We fed ducks, climbed trees, horsed around on the playground, and added in formal portraits with the entire family, who had come from near and far for this special occasion.
