Family photography that is candid, honest and joyful. 


PHOTOS THAT FEEL. 


I call Cincinnati, Ohio home with my incredible husband (newlywed, here!), and a very spoiled rescue dog. 

With a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Cincinnati's College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning; creating has always been at the heart of who I am while also being drawn to people and relationships.

Most parents don't get to see themselves as parents. I believe that photography is a gift that allows you to do just that - really see yourself in joy and love- with your family. To create memories that you will always have, memories that you will one day go through photo boxes and albums together and uncover. Memories that will fill your home with daily reminders of how blessed you are within your walls.

We'll definitely get the safe shots, and the ones smiling towards the camera. But we'll also get the little moments in between. The moments of comfort, consoling, playing and distracting.

So relax momma- and know that we are going to capture beautiful photos of you and your family.
Exactly as you are. And it's more than enough.

Sessions begin at $300.

MY RESCUE JAX

MY WHY

MY WHY

In 2010 I was a sophomore in college and my grandma was diagnosed with terminal cancer. I spent a lot of time with her as her cancer took over and her health became worse. On one occasion I brought a camera along with me to her house. She was no longer able to communicate. I talked to her, showed her my new camera and when I did my grandpa leaned over and gave her a kiss.
She smiled.
She was with us.
And I captured it on camera.
That was the the last time I ever saw her smile, she passed away 4 days later.
That is why I take photos. I take them so that you can remember the fleeting moments, the real moments, the joyful moments and everything in between so that those moments can last forever.

A wedding day can feel just like this -fleeting moments- gone in a blink of the eye. That is where my job comes in.. To preserve these moments in your history so that these moments are not gone forever, but forever here to stay.




HOME

After booking, we'll schedule your engagement session. This is one of our favorite parts of the wedding photography process!  I love getting to know all of my couples not only as clients, but as friends! This kind of relationship is essential in making your images intimate and personal. This is why engagement sessions are so important!

I will be by your side for almost your entire wedding day - so I want you to feel comfortable! Engagement sessions act as a “test run” for you two in front of the camera and as a way for us to get to know each other.

Once the wedding day rolls around, you'll be pros!

My goal is for you to enjoy the day, soaking up all of the love that surrounds you. I will be with you the whole time capturing every gorgeous detail and joyful moment!

The moments from your wedding day are apart of your legacy, they will live framed on mantles and walls and shared with friends and loved ones for years to come.

Your wedding is going to be a celebration to remember, but it is my hope that your marriage will be even greater!

MARGARITAS

On the rocks and with salt, please!

I am a firm believe there is nothing that a margarita (or a bubble bath) cannot cure.

READING

I love a good read!
I am passionate about English and literature. I was actually an English major for a year in college before I transferred to the art department to get my BFA.

When I finish a great book I actually get depressed for a few days when it is over. I love quotes from literature, too and I love hearing quotes incorporated into a wedding ceremony or decor.

ICE CREAM

Ice Cream is a complete food group in my life that I believe I can live off of.

Can I get an Amen?
