Mission & Philosophy

Creating legacies for families and individuals.


As a photographer, my goal is two fold. The first is to create beautiful imagery for you and/or your family in the best possible light. The second, and more important, is to help your family create a legacy by offering archival prints that will outlive you and your children and can be passed down for generations. That is ultimately why we take photographs. It’s not just so we can share them online or even hang on a wall. Photographs are meant to capture a moment in time so we can preserve them for the future.


I also have a secondary mission that is meaningful to me as a mom. I strongly feel that all women should have their portraits taken. When we devote ourselves to taking care of our children and families, we can sometimes lose touch with ourselves. Portraits aren’t about taking a pretty picture of someone but about capturing who they are—the many sides of someone. Women find the ‘reveal,’ their portrait viewing, to be an emotional experience. They see different sides of themselves, with some that they haven’t seen in years. It reconnects them to those sides and is an important reminder that they matter. Please visit my Experience for Women page to learn more.
