hello friends!

Come in, relax and stay a bit! My hopes are that you will see a few photos that make you smile and peek your interest to stop back often. I am a contemporary natural-light photographer serving Cornelius, North Carolina and the entire Lake Norman area.  My family just recently moved to North Carolina from Chicago and we are having a ball exploring and creating new adventures! I have owned my business since 2004 and have since specialized  in children and families. I adore every part of building relationships with your family and welcome sessions with chaos, crying kiddos and parents who can only dream of getting amazing shots of their growing family. No forced poses…no forced smiles. Just simple, modern, lifestyle photography at its best.  The last thing a Mom needs is to be under more stress to get decent family photography, right?  Let’s have some fun!aboutartist_familyphoto

When passing through the pages, take time to consider if I might be a fit for your family. Photography is like art…you have to connect with the work before you want it on your wall. You will find my style to be contemporary, colorful, candid and even a little crazy at times!  I shoot with an extreme depth of field and a tight frame. This is the style I love – and I hope you will too! Traditional photographer is not a term I’m used to, as you will find me chasing, laughing and laying on the ground with your kiddos. The key is to capture personalities and expressions – when they don’t even know I got the shot. My goal with every session is for the family to walk away saying, “Wow, that was easy!” You might even have some fun along the way. Shh. I won’t tell anybody.
