hello there!

Thank you so much for stopping by here!  I love capturing genuine moments in the form of beautiful art for families in the St. Louis area.  My love for photography started when I realized this was possible with my own family, and I'm excited that I can now share this with others.  I'm always on the hunt for interesting light and lines, but mostly I want to catch the love and connection in your family.  

I have a very easy-going personality, and that definitely spills over into my sessions.  I strive to make our time together fun and easy for everyone!  The best way I can describe my style is to call it lifestyle portraiture.  I want you to remember your family the way they really are, not just how they looked when I did my best to pose them perfectly :)  I want you to look at your images and feel something, not just be satisfied that everyone was looking at the camera at the same time  - although I do my best to get a few of those, also ;)

Outside of photography, I choose to spend my time serving at our church, hiking with my husband, losing at board games to my boys, being a football/baseball/basketball mom, taking road trips, cheering on the Cardinals, and most of all just being with friends and family. And if you just so happen to love Cherry Coke, chocolate, chai tea, or sitting on the beach, we should be fast friends!

If you haven't already visited them, the journal and the portfolio are both great places to see some recent sessions.  And I hope that you will say hello so that I can meet you and answer any questions you might have. I would love the opportunity to get to know you and your family!
