I believe that your experience should be an amazing adventure full of snuggles and laughter. An experience where you can spend time exploring and enjoying your family, unplugged and wild while I am documents it all. Through this experience I want to capture, motherhood beautifully imperfect, just like the souls we love most. What I want for you to have from this experience is making memories and real moments. The sweetness in the little details of your life that takes your breath away. Like the way your littles squeezes you tight, the way they twirl your hair, cling to your leg, reach for your hand, snuggle into your neck. The tiny gestures of love they do now, but may someday soon be gone. My passion is to help you see the poetry in your story, the love, the connections, your tribe for who they are right now at this moment, to celebrate family & the beauty of motherhood. My heart has forever been tied to family, each moment of our lives stitched together and entwined, the most beautiful gift we could ever be given.
I pour every ounce of love I have into planning every part of your experience from our pre-consultation, wardrobe planning, seeking out the most beautiful locations, making sure that your session unfolds in an authentic and fun way, to editing and painting a beautiful poetic story of our adventure and on to our reveal session. So if you enjoy being doted on and you are like me and enjoy sand between your toes, rocks under your feet with wind in your hair, capturing true natural beauty and in the moment photography, then I would love to hear from you and tell your story.
Do you provide styling assistants?
Yes! I want to make this an easy, fun, and amazing experience, so I work closely with you when it comes to styling your family. I love helping families coordinate their outfits and I have a great list of shops to refer you too. However, what my families find most helpful is if when I design style boards for them that include link where clothing can be found.
Do you do travel sessions?
Omg yes! Most of my fav spots require a little road time, but if you're planning something bigger, then let's chat and see if we can make it happen.
Currently I do not charge extra for travel sessions. Some places I have yet to shoot at but would love to are, Joshua Tree, Ruby's Beach WA, Oregon, Patrick's Point in CA, Zion National Park Utah... Seriously my list is endless
Where do sessions take place?
Where ever the path may lead us! I am in awe of the beauty of nature and love watching my families/clients put their cell phones down to explore and connect. I find it so inspiring. There is something about nature's beauty and photographing families that feeds my soul. I love exploring places with my families and seeing it through their eyes. Watching your children's excitement as they discover the world around them is the best it gets. I am totally drawn to rivers, beaches and lakes for my family sessions. They are so magical.
How long are your sessions?
Sessions usually last 60-90 minutes or as long as we all last. Dads don't worry this is more like an family adventure than a portrait session
When do sessions take place?
Sessions are conducted in the hours of the most beautiful light, the golden hour, sunrise, sunset. Approximately 1-2 hours before sunset set.
When is the best time to book a session?
Some of the best times to consider booking your session is summer, while on vacation, or planning a weekend get-away. Its always hard to work around everyone's schedule, with parents working, school, the kid's sports and activities. Trying to juggle all those schedules is hard enough without trying to find time to squeeze in a photo session. Since most people plan at few get aways throughout the year (whether it's camping, hiking, a weekend away) booking your photo session during those times works really well. Think about it, you're all in one place together, no other commitments, having fun, focusing on family and making memories. What better time could there be and what better way to celebrate your time together. Summers are hot in Sacramento, so when you're planning an escape to a cooler destination, let's get together an plan your session too.
