Why Work With Me


Flattering lighting & poses, safety for all ages, and feeling comfortable in front of the camera should be standard for all photo sessions. But this not your average photo session. Feel involved, pampered, and relaxed during the whole process including during the portrait session itself.


My style has been described as simple and classic. Together we’ll create timeless portraits for you and your family. Start by developing your unique vision with me, adding in your story and personality, culminating in a personalized session that fits you and your specific needs.


More than 5 years of experience, tons of photography education, and newborn safety certification means you can trust our process. Make this easy for yourself as I travel to your location, supply everything for mom and baby, and help you feel confident in photos.

Frequently Asked Questions

I come to you. Life is busy. Sometimes there isn’t enough time in the day to get everything planned and finished. The little things often get put on the backburner. Does this sound familiar? Let me make getting professional photos much simpler for you and less stressful.

Absolutely, yes! It is super easy and takes up a relatively small space. You can sit back and relax, finish getting your hair and make-up done, or even feed the baby while I get each prop, floor, wrap, backdrop, and lighting set-up ready to go. It might look like a mess as we move through each set-up, but rest assured, I will clean up every bit of what I brought and more! See this for a visual video of my set-up.

You will feel at ease and comfortable in front of the camera. We take time to get to know each other both during the planning process and while I am setting up at our session. Before you know it, a connection has been made and you are ready to make memories. Worried about your young children? The kids will feel involved and important. I have plenty of tricks to bring out natural smiles and lots of fun. Don’t worry about posing! My artistic eye and years of experience will make sure you all look visually pleasing in photos and each member of your family is comfortable.

I bring lighting on location. While you rarely see other photographers doing this, using an off-camera flash is the key to getting you to look natural without any color casts in your skin tone from surrounding backgrounds and to make your eyes sparkle in every photo. It’s not like a flash on a phone or point and shoot camera, and you’ll agree is totally worth it when you see the outcome. I almost always use extra lighting for all of my photoshoots.

Fully-processed images take roughly three weeks. About one week after your session, we will have an in-person viewing and ordering appointment where you will see the best images from your session, lightly processed (soft-proofed). You will choose your favorites, discuss potential editing requests for each one, and order your printed products, purchasing only what you love. Digital images will be ready less than two weeks after the ordering appointment and printed products will be delivered to you by me after they arrive and undergo a detailed inspection.

I have more answers! Send me a message and we’ll chat.

Why I Became A Portrait Photographer in Houston

Taking portraits has always been a passion of mine. As early as eight years old living in the Houston suburbs, I started photographing my family. My journey includes becoming a mom myself and has led me to support parents, especially mothers, in the Greater Houston area who want gorgeous portraits of their children, family, and loved ones and who do not have time in their busy worlds to plan every detail and order prints. I love helping women love how they look in photos and supporting female owned businesses. I offer headshots and full-service branding photo sessions to help you reach their ideal clients.

Bring Your Photos to Life

When you print your photos you get to enjoy them everyday. Your custom portraits should be proudly displayed to be the conversation piece of your home or office!

There is nothing like the feeling of seeing your photos – your memories – come to life; it’s so much more emotionally satisfying than digital files.

Invest with me and you walk away owning both print and digital images. It’s the best of both worlds.

Let’s showcase yourself, your family, or your business, with heirloom artwork from any of the portrait photo sessions I offer.
