Mom. Ginger. Old Soul. Friends call me many things, and I truly hope you'll want to call me your photographer.
Photography has always been a part of my life. Like many of my interests, I was drawn to it because my dad enjoyed it. He'd develop as many film rolls as I wanted to shoot, gave me his Canon AE-1 when I joined the high school yearbook staff, and took me all over Houston looking for darkroom equipment to build my own space in the room above our garage.
I studied Photojournalism at the University of Texas but really perfected my toddler-chasing-while-shooting-a-camera-in-manual skills with my own two tots.
I love warm light, rich colors and genuine emotions.
The images you didn't know I was taking? Those are always my favorite! Images from those moments in between poses, or the close-ups of those tiny fingers wrapped around yours while baby takes his time to warm up to me.
My goal at every session is to have fun. I'll work to elicit genuine smiles and emotions that encompass your family's spirit. Your session will consist of posed and candid moments with plenty of attention paid to making the little ones comfortable in front of the lens.
You deserve a meaningful session experience. Contact me to start the planning process!
