Childhood is beautiful. It’s rare that I could coach children into doing something better than what they would actually do on their own. Candid photography allows me to capture your child doing what they love to do in that very moment.
A tour through the garden? Yes, please.
Riding lessons? Let’s do it.
Little guy having a meltdown? Hey, it happens. That’s real life, too!
This is an intimate 1 ½-2 hour session in your home. I’ll arrive in the morning and meet everyone. Right away, I’m scouting and creating unique moments that reflect your family’s day-to-day life. I’ll also be shooting those little details you will want to remember. These sessions are laid back, relaxed, and super fun!
Session Type no. 1
Up for an adventure? Let me chronicle that family vacation in Jackson Hole. I’ll arrive the day before we shoot to scout our best spots and get the lay of the land, then we’ll spend a full day shooting together. I take the task of documenting the trip off your hands so you can actually enjoy it—and be in the photos for once!
Session Type no. 2
This session is perfect for families with young kids. It’s a time capsule that documents a day in the life of your child(ren). I’ll arrive before sunrise and stay with you until your little ones are tucked into bed for the night. We’ll shoot the whole day, capturing all those fleeting moments, routines, and phases you’ll want to relive together someday. It's fun, authentic, and easy!
Breakfast to Bedtime

“What did it look like when….?”
It's the period at the end of the sentence. This heirloom-quality album is a curated collection of the best pictures I've taken of your child through the years, plus a few photos of their most cherished objects. They may have brothers and sisters but this album just features them. It’s a perfect gift to mark a big life transition or celebrate a special season.
