The chaos of today will be one of your favorite memories.

i’m so happy you’re here!

LET ME INTRODUCE MYSELF

I am a homeschooling mama to three beautiful souls. They are wild and adventurous and really are my favorite people. We have so much fun together and there’s no one I’d rather spend my days with. The start of motherhood for me was also the start of my photography journey!

My littles are my inspiration and the drive behind my art. I want to capture your families love and connection in the exact way that I want mine captured. I photograph with my heart and my hope is that seeing your own story through my lens reveals how honest and passionate the love of your family really is.

I’m not just snapping photos

It means the world to me that you want me to document your family. I pour my heart into my sessions and I want to capture your family as true and honest as you’ll allow. I want you to have heartfelt art that brings you back to this exact moment in your life. I’m not just snapping photos, I’m intentionally capturing your families love story.

It’s your new favorite memory

I want today to be a memory that you never forget. I focus on capturing the fun, the chaos, and all of the in-between. It might be a session full of sweet moments with laughter and cuddles, or it might be beautiful chaos with big feelings, and that’s the beauty of documenting this exact season of your life.

I care about your family and I’m truly honored that you’ve chosen me.

We’ll chat a lot between booking your session to meeting you in person, and I feel like I get to know my families very well. I care about what your kids are interested in and what makes them laugh. I understand the way you want your family documented and the sweet moments you never want to forget. I see you when you tell me that you’re rarely in photos and this session is really special to you. You’ll never look back and regret being in photos with your children.

tips to a successful

Family Session

01.

Take advantage of my client closet

for mamas + littles

I’ve taken the stress out of wardrobe planning by creating a beautifully curated client closet for my clients to wear during their session with me. I can bring multiple dresses along to your session to ensure you find your perfect fit. Not only does my closet save you the stress of trying to find the perfect piece, it saves you from purchasing a beautiful hand made dress for $400+. You are welcome to dress as many family members as you can from my closet.

I style families all. the. time. What most mamas find stressful, I really enjoy! I’d be thrilled to style your entire family for you and send you links to purchase within your budget! Your styling will be timeless to match my photography and editing style.

When styling yourself, say yes to full length dresses with movement, flat shoes, earthy tones, simple jewelry, and wavy hair. Say no to dresses that are fitted or shorter than a midi, any shoes with a heel, pinks and blues, hair up, and tight curls for the girls.

02.

Happy vibes only

Let the little things go

Say no to micromanaging little ones during your session with me. We’ll follow their lead and redirect when we can, but scolding or discipling takes the fun out of the session. It’s in your hands to allow the magic of your family to unfold.

Embrace the chaos and let things happen naturally. There’s a 100% chance that things won’t go exactly as planned. The kids might cry, run away, fall in the dirt, get wet, or have a full blown meltdown. Trust me when I tell you that photographing little ones is my jam and I promise we are still getting incredible photos, so never stress or apologize for your kids. Just remember to smile and laugh through the chaos. There’s a good chance that I’m still capturing beautiful moments (even though you don’t see it). You will love your photos (and the memory) so much more if you make the most of every moment.

03.

Prepare your family to slow down and be in the moment

get readt for a fun family adventure

When Dad’s show up to a photoshoot, they almost always want to look at the camera and smile (and they try to get the kids to do the same), so preparing your family for a care-free documentary session is very beneficial. We won’t be moving quickly through poses, but instead we will slow down, adventure, and be vulnerable. Breathe your children in, touch their hair, and fall into this moment with them. Engage your kids by asking them questions, telling stories and jokes, twirling, and dancing.

THE BOOKING PROCESS

01.

Let’s get to know each other!

Booking your session + getting personal

When you’re ready to book your session, connect with me through the form on my contact page to start chatting via email! We’ll discuss in detail what your dream session looks like, who’s included in your family, and the beautiful locations where your session can take place!

To secure your date on my calendar, a retainer of $600 and a signed contract is required. Your date is held for you only, and I take on a very limited number of sessions per month to give you the very best service and flexibility possible.

We’ll chat a lot between booking your session to meeting you in person, and I feel like I get to know my families very well! I care about what your kids are interested in and what makes them laugh, and I’ll send you out a questionnaire before your session that covers all of those little (but so important) details. What most mamas find stressful about styling, I really enjoy! I’d be thrilled to style your entire family for you! I’ll send you links to purchase within your budget, or pull pieces from my client closet! Your styling will be timeless to match my photography and editing style.

02.

It’s time for your session!

WHAT A SESSION WITH ME LOOKS LIKE

We’ve picked the perfect location and your family is beautifully styled! We’ll arrive at our location anywhere from 1 to 2 hours before sunset to capture your family until the golden light fades away. I am here to document your family for who you are in this exact moment. We won’t be moving quickly through poses, but instead we will slow down, adventure, and be vulnerable. Breathe your children in, touch their hair, and fall into this moment with them. We will play, laugh, and dance the night away, and it’s going to be one of your favorite memories.  

We will authentically capture your family and all of the wild in between

I care about your family and I’m truly honored that you’ve chosen me!

Time to get pumped, your gallery is on it’s way!

PRINT BEAUTIFUL ART

You’ll receive your gallery in a maximum of 6 weeks (at peak times). Your photos will be delivered through an online gallery, where you can download, print, and share your images! You’ll have access to my online store where you can purchase beautiful, professional quality product, for your home.


To secure your session date a non-refundable retainer of $600 and a signed contract are required.

I travel for 100% of my sessions! Travel is included in the collection fee for the following locations

Alberta – Kananaskis, Canmore, Banff, and Drumheller.

Vancouver – Downtown Vancouver, West Vancouver, and Pitt Meadows.

Vancouver Island – Victoria, Sooke, and Jordan River.

Your online gallery will be delivered to your email within 6 weeks of your session date for you to download, share, and print at your convenience.

I understand that late nights with kids can be scary (I have 3), but I promise you that we will have an incredible time during your sunset session! Playing outdoors, eating snacks, and not micromanaging the session really helps littles enjoy their photoshoot, even if its past bedtime! If it happens to be overcast on the day of your session, we can absolutely start earlier!
Morning sessions are available along the coast in beautiful shaded light.

I have an always growing collection of dresses for my mom’s to wear from my client closet! I will also create a style board that not only fits my brand, but is specific to your family. By doing so I will remove the stress that comes along with coordinating and purchasing outfits.

I only take a limited number of sessions each month to ensure that I can give you the best experience. If the weather is calling for overcast or light rain, we can adjust the start time of your session as needed. If it’s calling for a thunderstorm, we may look at rescheduling to a different day. Our weather is always unpredictable, and some of my favorite sessions come from embracing the chaos of wild weather.

Micromanaging little ones (especially toddlers) can be detrimental to your session. If they cry and need snuggles, let’s take advantage of that and soak up those sweet moments. Let’s allow the kids to come and go on their own terms, and while we’ll redirect them if needed, disciplining them ruins the fun vibe really fast. I want to capture authentic connections that cannot be forced, so bring me all the wild ones and let me show you the magic amongst the chaos.

I want to capture your family for who you are in this exact moment. I want you to embrace your babies, breathe them in, touch their hair, and fall into this moment with them. The best images come from the quiet intimate moments that can only happen when we allow ourselves to slow down and be vulnerable. We are in no hurry to go anywhere. Don’t look to the camera and say cheese, just enjoy your children, make them laugh, and let’s create the best family memory together.

I am currently only booking family and motherhood sessions at this time. I no longer photograph weddings, engagement, or extended family sessions.
