Three Days Young

October 11, 2022


Oh gosh, it feels like ages since I’ve held a baby as itty bitty as three days old. The little fingers & toes, tufts of hair, soft whimpers, those early days of getting to know one another. It’s a privilege to be in this sacred space, and these sessions are such treasures for me as they are for my families.

About Me

Real life is more than pretty pictures.
The beauty is in the journey, and it's absolutely
worth documenting all of it. 

I’m captivated by people and always have been; my B.S. is in anthropology. Early on, I appointed myself the family documentarian, carefully recording milestones and travels and learning along the way how much I love visual storytelling. I picked up my first professional camera when my daughter was born, knowing those early years with her were precious and full of changes. A photographer friend’s encouragement soon led me to make photography my career. Today, after many years and proud accomplishments, my passion for it only grows.

I can’t imagine doing anything else.
