day in the life sessions

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.

You may be the one who hires me, but it's your children I work for. Because the importance of these moments will gain weight with each passing year, and 30 years from now they will be so glad you did this for them.

Day In the life sessions start at $900, with most families spending between $2000-3600, including travel costs. Please contact me for a client guide and complete investment details.

environmental portraits

Another year. Another adventure. New milestones and new experiences. 

Environmental family, children, or couples portraits are about holding on to who you are right now, so that year after year you have tangible evidence of not just the memories, but how it's felt along the way. These are the photographs that will fill your walls with both art and stories, because sometimes you don't realize how much right now matters until you are looking back on it. 

Available in and around Grand Canyon National Park & Flagstaff, Arizona.

Environmental portrait sessions start at $450, with most clients spending between $800-1500. Please contact me for client guide and complete investment details.
