I am married to a great guy and a mom to four awesome kids; three boys and a girl. Being a mom is the best thing I have ever done. Nothing is more important to me than my faith and my family. I currently live in Sammamish, WA where I have an in-home studio. I do have some places around town that I love to shoot as well, as long as the weather cooperates. I love photography! Being able to capture these specials moments and remember them through pictures is so important as these days go by so fast. After my daughter was born in 2013, I knew that it was time to pursue my passion of being a photographer and started making my dream a reality. It was the best professional decision I have ever made.
Photographing newborns, maternity and children is really amazing. But with it comes a level of responsibility that I do not take lightly. Safety is of utmost importance to me while you are here in the studio or on location. I have devoted countless hours to my education and training.
I have had a two day in-person training workshop for newborn photography as well as an in-person training class for newborn safety and posing. These classes were conducted by a well respected, industry professional. I have also been able to consult with and learn from a registered newborn physiotherapist. Along with in-person training, I have completed many hours of online classes and training. Some of the classes are Baby Safety & Posing for Newborn Photographers, Newborn Photography Bootcamp, Pregnancy and Newborn Photography, Bumps to Babies: Photographing Motherhood, Newborn Posing any many more.
These skills help aid in posing to keep the baby and mama healthy and safe at all times. The cutest portrait in the world is not worth it if baby is not safe. My client’s safety will always come before an image.
I am a proud Elite Alumni member of The Motherhood Society with Beauty & Lifestyle Mommy, a Qualified Newborn Photographer with safety certification with the Accredited Professional Newborn Photographers International. I am also fully licensed and insured within the state of Washington.
“There are days when I feel life is flying by. Small moments are getting lost in the busy-ness of life. Capturing fleeting moments, slowing down, making those around me feel unique, special and valued is something that means a lot to me. Why not celebrate the good in life? Our families and children. The miracle of new life. Laughter. Connections. Emotions. These are the things we carry with us. The moments to value, treasure and capture. ”
