I'm a family documentary photographer specializing in 24 hour "day in the life" sessions that are part story, and part poetry. I'm also a sought after mentor and workshop instructor, as well as a designer specializing in visual branding that reflects not just the heart and soul of a business, but its unique story as well.
Based at the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park in northern Arizona, I serve clients and destinations all over the world.
I'd love the chance to work with you in whatever capacity you need. Please don't hesitate to reach out!
When I'm not documenting families all over the world or encouraging others to follow their photographic dreams, you can find me spending time with my husband and two young daughters at our national park home (currently the Grand Canyon, Arizona), and dreaming up ways to best illustrate the emotional themes of motherhood, connection, and family in my work.

You’re sitting at your kitchen table. One child is pulling at you and asking for water while you’re trying to help your other child with his homework. For a moment you feel split in two, and you drown a little in how hard it is to be so needed.
But then a voice in your head reminds you that all things pass (including the good things), and that one day you won’t be needed so much. Your heart constricts and you realize how much you want to hold onto THIS.
This exact moment: the ordinariness of being needed, of being right in the thick of it with your children. It reminds you of all those who’ve gone before, who’ve told you to hold onto these days with everything you have, and you know you need to find a way to make that happen.
I understand. And I can help: I provide tangible evidence of that aching "things-are-passing-too-quickly" feeling.
Your branding may be a logo, fonts and color choices, but your BRAND is you.
I'm sure you've heard that message over and over, and have maybe even gone down the path of trying to figure out your own brand, either on your own or with a professional. But it's still hard to know exactly what that means, and how to best communicate it to others. Being able to create a set of elements that communicate who you are to the rest of the world is an important step for any business.
Here's why working with me will be different: I'm going to take my years as a mentor and photography instructor who's specialized in reading images, curating portfolios, and helping others understand their photographic voice - and I'm going to help you find not just your brand, but your VOICE. I'm going to help you find your why, and figure out how to express that to the world. It's about that intangible thing that runs through everything you do. I believe it's present in your images, and that I'm uniquely suited to helping you find it, and turn it into a brand that cannot be ignored.
In a word - I'm going to help you find YOU. I've already done it for hundreds of photographers when it comes to defining their photography, and it's just a small step to taking those same skills and turning it into a personal brand that will resonate.
This option is for emerging business owners who are ready for a professionally designed look. You gain the benefit of the basic building blocks of a logo, font, and color scheme, even if you are on a budget. It's just enough to get you started, and give your business that polished feel you're looking for.
Includes: an in depth questionnaire and a Pinterest homework assignment, moodboard, color scheme, one logo, font recomendations, and a complimentary set of social media icons.
