Coming from a broken home, I have zero family photos. I have zero memories of me as a child. Nothing to pass onto my children. It is sad and honestly heartbreaking when I start to think about it. This is why photography means so much to me. It brings tears of joy to my face and lights up my heart in a way that is is hard to put into words. I know I am on a mission to create something special for this world.
Let's talk about my passion that turned into my full time job. It all started in 2017 when my daughter was born. Just the thought of her growing up made my mama heart hurt. I wanted to so desperately freeze time. I wanted to hold on to even the smallest moments. I wanted my daughter to have memories when she had a family of her own one day. I wanted her to see her childhood through pictures and see how much her mommy and daddy loved each other. I knew for sure I did not want to make the same mistake my parents did. One day, I picked up my brand new camera that was still in a box collecting dust in my closet and I just completely fell in love. I discovered the art of storytelling through photos and started creating my own little memories.
It almost felt like I was freezing time. I started capturing every single moment of my journey as a new mom and of course every milestone in my daughter's life. My camera became my little escape and my safe haven. I've never put it down after that. Now, here we are not only capturing my own memories as mama of two, but also doing the same for others. I believe every mama out there deserves beautiful memories of their tiny humans, because believe me when I say, "The days are long but the years go by so fast." Don't blink and let's capture the story of your beautiful life.
Things I Love...
God, Target runs, weight training, cats, and loving on my little babes. I am a matcha tea latte girl and a chocolate lover. I absolutely love Nutella! If I could have it daily I would!
Ever since I started my photography journey, I have met the most amazing families. I specialize in Family, Newborn, and Maternity Lifestyle Photography, but if you ask me to capture your elopement, I will be on cloud nine! This job has allowed me to travel all over Virginia, Maryland, Washington DC, and other states across the country. Many of my clients have become lifetime clients and close friends - which is another reason why I love photography so much. I get to meet the sweetest people! Sometimes I feel like I am living a dream. Pinch me!!!
My favorite sessions are where I simply photograph a family's real connection and love for each other, whether is in your perfect space at your home or at the a location you've been dreaming about. I love natural and candid memories even in between the chaos, tantrums or tears. Those authentic and unscripted moments are what truly make everything every session so special.
Truly from the heart...
Please take more photos. Mama, you are beautiful the way you are now. You do not need to lose weight, you do not need a fancy dress, you do not need a breath-taking location. You just need your family's love + connection with each other. All you need is right there in front of you.
Every family I meet holds a special place in my heart. I put my heart + soul into each session. I want you to fall in love with your photos as you go over your gallery. I want to know my photos made you cry of happiness. I want you to tell me our session was fun. It is always an honor to bring your vision to life. I hope we get to meet soon and capture the love of your family through my camera lens.
