That's what I do with my family portrait photography. When I photograph your family, I make a very conscious effort to capture those moments, and I've had years of experience capturing that love. Let's put something on your wall that is going to make you smile every day!

Everyone loves a happy baby.


This was my third time making these girls' portraits for the family Christmas card. I'm so honored that so many families have me back again and again to document their family.

I shoot all my family portraits entirely on film. Film has a certain look that digital cameras simply can't match. The soft, warm feeling you get from the images you see here is because I use film (and know how to use it).

Your family is strong. Strong not just because of the people in it, but because of the connections between them. Your family portraits should be about that strength, and about the love that binds you together.
