Timeless portraits & artwork

What to wear, where to take photos, and how to print, frame, and actually use the final images — if there’s even time for it…

These are the concerns I alleviate for families in Seattle. Not only helping you create memories free of distractions or interruptions, but creating a legacy with fine art prints and luxury albums that document the times you’ll look back on wistfully.

As one day turns into the next, I want you to carry photographs throughout your life that swell with memories, the kind that you can grab onto, and hold tightly.

By personally guiding you on the finished artwork (albums, prints, and custom frames), you won’t just have memories worth looking back on — you’ll have heirlooms hung on your walls, bound in albums, and displayed in ways that breathe new life into your home, and how you tell your story.

“Her lightness, humor, and approachability accentuated her skill and passion for lifestyle photography; she made it look effortless. But I assure you that not just anyone can create such art, like she can!”

About This Family & Maternity Photographer in Seattle

In the 2-4 weeks following your session, I’ll be in the creative midst of photo editing — this includes color correcting, tone adjustments, cropping and curating a gallery of timeless, cohesive images. When ready, you’ll receive an email with a link to schedule your viewing and ordering appointment.

I’m family, newborn, and maternity photographer in Seattle. Home is Tacoma, WA and a majority of my work takes place in Seattle and throughout the Pacific Northwest. While most of my clients typically trust the studio, field or coastal locations I’ve pre-selected, please let me know if you have something else in mind.

An hour before sunset is ideal for that dreamy, beautiful lighting, the kind that brings out warm, natural skin tones and a film-like finish. This can make for later sessions in the summer, but is key to creating the photographs I’m known for. I have tips to help with the little ones if need be; just ask!

As a maternity photographer in Seattle I recommend taking maternity photos between 28 and 32 weeks, booking them in advance, however, during your second trimester.

Yes! Good things take time. We may not need all day, but we won’t put a timer on things either. I don’t time my sessions to ensure that nothing is rushed, and that if meltdowns happen, we have time to relax back into things.

Of course! Digital collections are available in 10, 20, or your full gallery of 30+ images. However many families choose to receive their digital images through their artwork investment.
