In-home Family Photo Session – Alameda

August 30, 2023


With all the hustle of the day-to-day, it’s no surprise that in-home sessions are in high demand. I mean, we all use a good excuse to slow down, right? And I can’t imagine a better location to do that than at a place that holds the most meaning. These in-home sessions are my absolute favorite. We capture what you want to remember from this particular season of your life. Morning snuggles, making bfast together, reading in bed, high-stakes thumb war…the opportunities are endless. I can’t think of a better way to capture your perfectly imperfect. Extra bonus? You don’t even have to change out of your PJs if you don’t want to. DM if this feels right up your alley. I may even show up with PJs in solidarity.

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.
