I love portrait sessions. Simply, I love connections. I love capturing the connection between those just starting their love story as well as those who are celebrating years of love together. I love watching families grow and capturing their children grow. Whatever your story, it would be my honor to capture.

PORTRAITS

Where are you located?
I live in Winchester, Virginia.

Do you travel?
Yes! For sessions within a 20-mile radius of 22602 Winchester, VA is included in your session. Beyond that your session location will determine travel costs based on mileage, which would be applied to your final balance. 

Where will our session take place?
The location of your session really depends on your vision for the portraits! While newborn portraits take place my residential studio or in your home, we will work together to find the right spot for your maternity, newborn, or family portraits.

When is the best time to schedule my maternity and/or newborn photos?
It is best to inquire and book a date before the halfway period of your pregnancy so I can make sure to prioritize your baby's arrival. Maternity portraits taken place between week 26-34 and newborn portraits should be taken within 14 days of arrival!

How do you describe your style?
Light, airy, joyful, romantic, and organic.

What are your tips for families looking to hire their photographer?
It is important that you connect with the photographer. Quality > quantity, ALWAYS! Photography is an investment. These are your precious memories, and it is important that you trust your photographer, you connect with them, and they make you feel comfortable and confident! Find someone whose style and personality you love!
