When I became a mother, my children’s simple everyday moments became beautiful to me. I saw the world differently and have been inspired to capture these special times and connections and turn them into art.
I have been doing photography for 14 years, specializing in maternity, newborns, children, seniors, and families. I currently reside in Eugene, OR with my husband and two children. I graduated with a Master’s Degree in teaching and taught 1st grade before my son was born. I adore children. I love how innocent, raw and full of emotion they are. The unique bond between siblings, sweet family connections, a mother and father’s complete and total love for their new child… these relationships all fascinate and inspire me to be the artist that I am. I strive to capture real-life moments that reflect the true essence of you.
My style of photography is a mix of authentic moments and staged. What I am shooting would actually happen in your real life. I approach each session with the goal of creating images that are a true reflection of you, capturing candid moments and expressions. I don’t use props and use only natural light. Your session can be in your own home, both inside and outside or at an outdoor location of your choice. If your session is in your home, I will find the room(s) in your home with the sweetest, loveliest pockets of natural light. If your session is outdoors, I prefer the morning or late afternoon when the light is best. I love working with nature… big mossy trees, creeks, tall prairie grass, and beautiful light.
I see great value in photography. It has the ability to capture real moments. I am passionate about what I do and feel honored to photograph you and your family. Thank you!
