"I try and let people have the freedom to do what they want in front of the camera. I want them to feel that, that's not wrong. I don't want to over direct people. They then can feel connected to the shoot, not just standing in front of it. My job is to capture that exuberance and that love of life."

Birth Packages


Lifestyle Sessions


Pregnancy, Motherhood, Newborn & Family


When should I book?

Book as soon as you can!
For Maternity and Birth sessions please inquire after your 8 weeks. Maternity is typically photographed when you are 32-38 weeks pregnant. Birth documentary is very limited spots each month so as soon as you are interested please DM.
For family and newborn sessions book at least 3-5 months out.

Where are you based and do you travel?

I'm based in Columbus, Ohio. At this time in my life (3 little ones under 8), I travel up to 50 miles outside of Columbus. For any extra miles, I require a traveling fee.

When will we get our photos?

You will receive an online gallery link with all your photos within maximum of 4 weeks (sometimes less depending on the season I photograph your story). You can download all the photos from the gallery but also share them, choose your favorites, and also order prints!

How do I pick out what to wear?

I understand wanting to put something new on and feeling beautiful but my main advice is wear something you feel comfortable in! I want you to look at these photos years to come and see the mom you were not the mom you were trying to be. Be yourself!

With that being said there are certain colors I ask you not to wear only because they don't bow well with my editing, specifically high saturated colors. But we will go over all of this a week before our shoot over zoom :)
