a beautiful mess

Hi, I’m Cindy

Yes, my life is a beautiful mess. My kids don’t perform for the camera, and I am not your “look at the camera and smile” kind of girl. I like a little bit of whimsy, a little bit of blur, and finding the calmness in the chaos. I’m a lover of the perfectly imperfect, and that is what you will find in my art.

I want to give you wonder, magic, love, all wrapped up in a rectangle. I want to show you, through photos, how hard you loved each other. I want to be your mirror and reflect the love story that I see.

That is why I love to work with families and tell their story with lifestyle portraits. I love real and authentic pictures of families together; a mess of tangled arms and legs. Not forced smiles or posed but natural family photos.
