I LOVE how creative Vanessa and her husband got with including their family members in our photo session. Their parents and siblings live in different cities and states, but we were still able to capture their relationships by including them through FaceTime. So many of us have spent the last two years FaceTiming with familyContinue reading “Getting Creative with FaceTime”
Half day family photography sessions, or Slice of Life sessions as I call them, offer us the opportunity to choose two to three activities for us to engage in as we take photos. This is great because we leave the session with a variety of images that feel unique, special, and true to our lives.Continue reading “Slice of Life – Purva and Family in Los Angeles”
There’s nothing I love more than capturing moments that remind me of all the universal ways we communicate with each other. This image of two girls sharing secrets makes me nostalgic for my youth and makes me smile at their connection. There are so many ways I can come in to your life and takeContinue reading “Found moments”
I love just hanging out. You keep doing you – work on your car, do your favorite hobby, plan something special. It doesn’t matter to me. I just want to see what is important to you. That’s where we’ll get the most images that are true to you.

The long, dark, and cold winter months have long disrupted my wellbeing, and I’ve slowly been taking steps to prioritize my health and happiness. A warmer, sunnier, winter is one piece ofContinue reading “I’ve moved! Now booking in Los Angeles, California”
The pandemic created isolation and physical distance for all of us. Which is why, once I was vaccinated, I was so excited to be able to spend much of the summer with family in Gloucester, Massachusetts. I’m grateful that my photography is something I can take with me wherever I go because it helps meContinue reading “Thank you, North Shore Moms!”
