Whether you're here at the start of your motherhood journey with your heart filled with anxious anticipation, or as a seasoned parent covered in dirty finger prints and tripping over LEGO's on your way out the door, I welcome you... and I'm so glad you're here.

When I’m photographing motherhood, I’m reminded of all the seasons of motherhood I’ve experienced; the unknowing that comes with waiting, the heartbreak of loss and grief, the nervous anticipation of those last few weeks of pregnancy. and the overwhelming, indescribable love that follows. I am flooded with memories of my boys as babies and toddlers, moments that I thought I might break from exhaustion or burst from joy. It all comes back to me every single time and allows me to connect wholeheartedly with families, helping me to capture authentic moments and emotion during our session together.

To witness the magical moments that are your life story, to capture it in all its real, raw, beauty. To see you, mama, as the wonder that you are. That is one of the greatest gifts this work has given me.

What an honor it would be to document your motherhood journey.
