Easy. Authentic. Fun.

You're looking for someone to capture you just as you are, and you want it to be FUN.

I make it easy to do just that.

I'll guide you through planning your personalized session, capture your unique connections, and quickly deliver timeless images you'll be dying to share.

When it comes to my style & what you can expect:

I keep all my sessions PLAYFUL. I want to bring out your natural reactions and expressions, while also giving you direction to feel confident and calm. I look for both soft, glowy light as well as unique highlights and shadows to play with. I capture a healthy balance of classic portraits and candid images to make up your gallery. I'll remove most basic imperfections and use some soft skin smoothing, but I am not a photographer who uses photoshop heavily. When I say authentic and natural - that's what I mean.

Professional photo touch ups are available at an additional cost if you're looking for that airbrushed look on your images.

Your images will be delivered in mostly true to life color, with some in black and white. You can expect natural greens, natural color saturation, and warmer, higher contrast images that pop and make you feel the emotions. I pride my work on being timeless, not trendy.

Grace has been our family photographer since our oldest son's newborn photos. Since then, she has been there to capture so many monumental moments for our family. We gifted grandmother's session to my mom, who normally doesn't love taking pictures, but she felt totally comfortable and confident with Grace. The prints turned out incredible and captured the special bond of my boys with their Nonna.
We will hold onto these treasures forever.
