the pearson family

THIS family. Their light and love came through my lens so strongly. It makes me happy when families come to a session so open-hearted.  Very grateful to the Magic Hour Foundation for connecting me with the Pearsons. If you are not familiar with the Magic Hour Foundation they offer free photography sessions and prints to those fighting cancer. If you are a Photographer I cannot recommend this foundation enough.  And they offer sessions everywhere so please check them out.

Sarah is fighting breast cancer and underwent chemo during her pregnancy. I've poured over her blog and it's so utterly uplifting and healing. You can follow her here: Enjoy a glimpse, into the life, of this beautiful tribe.


Watching the sky in NYC

I was in NYC, for a work trip, so I didn't have a whole lot of time to shoot but I'm sharing anyway. Especially since I was there during the eclipse. Half of these images are from my Google Pixel because walking around, for miles, with my big girl camera is just not much fun anymore. I'm OLD. And really, in the end, it's about shooting what you love with what you have:)

I absolutely adore this city and her people. Looking forward to my next time around:)

Living in the redwoods | Autumn and Winter (part 1)

We are incredibly fortunate to have a family cabin, in the redwoods of California.  It's a place I am always aching for and feel so much loss when we have to leave.  We have a ritual when we get home, from our time there, where we keep all the clothing in suitcases so we can inhale the mixture of redwoods and mildew for as long as possible. I'll be blogging this in parts so I don't drown y'all in too many images:)
**If you are able, these image heavy blogs are always better on a laptop or computer:)**

Fall Family Sessions 2017 | Booking Now



Autumn is approaching which means it is time for family photos and time for me to be overly dramatic about sweaters and baked goods.

Soooo, I know mini sessions are very popular, this time of year, and even though I totally understand the need for a quick Christmas card pic , I will not be offering that type of session this Fall (UNLESS you are a return client).

The soulful, carefree, sincere images that my clients crave almost always come when we have had more time together. You do not have to FEEL amazing to get amazing images. You just have to be willing to trust me. My job is to help you reflect the love within your tribe. I promise you, even on the most mundane days, there is beauty to be unearthed.

I want to be able to accommodate everyone so please please book as soon as you are able. I will only be taking a select number of sessions because I want each client to feel special and get the attention they deserve.

The Meza tribe | Austin, TX

Good gravy, it's been four years, you guys!  I've watched you bring new life into the world and face rough situations with utter grace. You are all so creative, full of wisdom, and strength. I'm so proud to be your friend and photographer. Friendtographer:) Ahh ya, just made that up. Boom:)
Love you guys! xoxo


I work with the most generous, wonderful company, in the world ( and had the privilege of traveling to Italy, for work, last year. 

Travel makes my heart ache (the good kind) more than any other thing.


This. little. Wandering | O'Fallon Park

If you don't already follow this family on Intsagram you are missing out. Kayla's posts are always so artful and serene. They are embarking on a a huge adventure soon, living, full time, in a renovated school bus. I love when I see people doing life differently. You have to be brave, and gutsy, and heart-following people do this kind of thing and I'm looking forward to seeing them thrive in this new life.
