stress free family photography
Stress free, fun, happy, colorful, casual are all things that describe a session with me.
I have always loved art and enjoyed creating things. It makes me happy . . . puts a skip in my step. My interest in photography started in high school, but really expanded once I had children. I now have 3 little ones of my own (that's us on the left), and I feel compelled to document their unique characteristics and personality traits with the camera. I like to capture moments, looks, glances, smiles, belly laughs, the beauty within them . . . everything about them I want to remember. My goal is to capture real moments and interactions. It is no different when I am at a session. I want to capture all of these things for you too.
People have described me as creative and passionate. I put both of these qualities to work in every session. I want you to love your images as much as I do.
I also enjoy getting to know people and listening to their stories. That's why photography is such a good match for me. It brings my creative passion together with my love for people. I look forward to meeting you and hearing your story as I document your unique characteristics with my camera.
I love this family! Truly. Mom and I reconnected after high school and I’ve been photographing them for the last several years. What a joy to watch their family grow. Little mister is like a speeding bullet . . . and he’s only 1! Big brother is my buddy . . . and super...
Sweet baby Henry. I love spending time with this family. Mom, Dad, big brother, and Grandma . . . thanks for coming to visit me and allowing me to capture such precious memories of your newborn. -Julie
I just don’t blog them much! This is a sweet family I photographed in August. Loved spending time with them capturing a bit of their everyday.
My girls and my niece. I love taking pictures of them. As a mom I am so happy to have these images. They are an absolute treasure. I used about 60 images from this session in a book that I gave them for Christmas.
With the exception of the last shot, all of these were taken as black and white images in camera. A little contrast added in editing and they were done. It was my niece’s first time bowling. That’s her in the first shot right before her first bowl. It was fun to watch her. She’s a...
I was fortunate enough to take pictures of the older two kids last year. And this year sweet baby C joined in. I love capturing this family! Mom mentioned she would like to have their photos taken in front of a red barn, so another client of mine was kind enough to let us use...
Happy Thanksgiving! Today we were cooking and cleaning and getting ready for tomorrow’s feast. I’m looking forward to the sweet potatoes! I have so many things to be thankful for . . . those 3 girls in the picture, my husband and son, my extended family, a roof over our heads that is so graciously...
Seeing my youngest on the right cracks me up! And look at my adorable little boy. They are growing so fast. This made me smile. Maybe it will make you smile too.
