I take documenting your family legacy seriously. The love you share as a family is magical and your story is unique!

You deserve to enjoy every minute of your session with your family and loved ones (doggies included!) – and I want you to have the photos you've always dreamed of hanging all throughout your home to cherished for generations to come.

Your kids childhood is going to go by in a flash! That's why I help you feel confident, comfortable, and relaxed… so you can enjoy the moment.

My job is to take timeless portraits of the emotional, candid moments so you can remember them forever, and to take care of all the tiny details – smudged mascara, fly away hairs, cheeto fingers – so you and your family look amazing and never have to stress about the process.

Let'S TELL YOUR FAMILY STORY

Capturing your family legacy is more than a job
– it's my purpose.

Let's get this session started!

You'll usually find me using my silly sense of humor to get families laughing, snuggling, and totally relaxed – comfortable being themselves in front of my camera. 

Families are precious. And I'm all about capturing the sweet moments, the loving embraces, and the happy smiles so you can keep those memories forever.

"THE WHOLE POINT OF TAKING pictures IS SO THAT YOU DON'T HAVE TO explain THINGS WITH words."

Nothing makes me happier than spending time with the people I love. I value friendships and the bonds of family more than almost anything else, and I love celebrating the special people in my life!

So many of my Gems – former clients – have become true friends. It's one of my favorite parts of this job!

spending time with loved ones.

Exploring new places, tasting new foods, soaking in the sights and sounds… I love everything about traveling. The only thing that makes it better? Getting to take wedding photos, engagement photos, or couple portraits in a beautiful new place!

If you love my work and know we would be instant besties but you don't live in Arizona… don't worry! Reach out and let's chat about me coming to you. Destination photo sessions are my favorite.

I'm still kind of old school. There's nothing like the little thrill you get opening a personal letter and reading a kind note from a friend, gem, or loved one. 

Email is convenient, but nothing beats the nostalgia and care of a handwritten note. The only thing better would be if the note was delivered by owl, Harry Potter style.
