with brave wings she flies

Maya Angelou said, “I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands. You need to be able to throw something back.” And one thing that I have to give back is my photography. It’s my plan to gift sessions to those who may not be able to afford it but so deserve it. Those who are survivors of domestic violence, those who are sick and dealing with illness, and those parents who are champions for the children. Some days, they have the world on their shoulders, and deserve a little gift. If this is you, or you know someone who deserves beautiful photos with their family, please contact me.


her wild and precious life

It’s the last year in my 40’s and I’m putting ordinary on a pedestal by attempting a 365 project as a count down to my 50th birthday. I've never succeeded with a 365, but I am hoping this project will be different as the super talented Chloe Lodge is joining me over on Instagram. She is embracing her first year of living in NZ, and together we created the hashtag #herwildandpreciouslife if you want to follow along.

life in still

In the chaos of raising 5 gorgeous souls, I find calm in the still. It’s the moments of quiet that feed my soul, and learning this has helped my creativity. It’s one of the many things that I have on my list of “gifts to myself”


my philosophy

"She was life itself. Wild and free.

Wonderfully chaotic. A perfectly put together mess."


Family, its our everything!

Your life is a beautiful mess,


calm and chaos,

constantly changing.

They are your everything!

Let’s make honest, emotive, and soulful portraits. I want to show that you lived passionately and loved madly.

A portrait session with me is taking the time to slow down and connect with one another. It’s not about the perfect photo but the whole story.

motherhood: raw portraits of you.

Connected. Close. Together. Your story with the loves of your life.

All the love. All of you. Altogether in one frame. A tangled mess.
