Lazy Sunday | Pittsburgh Child Portrait and Family Photographer


There is nothing better than spending some quality time with the family.  These small moments seem to turn into memories before we even realize.  It’s so important to be there, present in the moment, with the ones you love and care about.  On a lighter note…..
What says family time better than a cozy Sunday morning pancake breakfast?! :-)


everything pure and good | Chicago family and child photography

Here I go deep thinking again…..my career has become such a source of joy in my life. There were a few years where I diverted to more commercial work and teaching, but though searching my heart I have come back to creating mostly for families. It’s funny…when I first started out in photography, I was terrified of shooting a family session. So many people, where to focus, how to control your session..it was all so overwhelming. As I continued to develop my craft and understand what makes me tick, I lost that anxiety and embraced the chaos and relished in the connection I could capture. Today, I love nothing more that creating family art. It is my passion and love.


Meet some of my “family”.

roam if you want to…….. | Pittsburgh child and family photographer

When I let my mind wander…I dream of legacy I want to leave my children.  I think of making everlasting memories with them. I want them to feel, experience, do all that this world has to offer. These are the days where we create these little humans we are responsible for into people. Live with intention <3
