A little bit about my family sessions...


Whether indoors at my Des Moines studio, in your home or outdoors around the Des Moines area, I absolutely love shooting family sessions! As a mother of four growing children, I know how quickly time passes, and I want to help you capture your family memories to look back on for years to come.


I will be a perfect fit for you if..

  • You want to work with someone who understands photos of your family are an experience and investment, and you want yours to be seamless and enjoyable.
  • You want to feel like you are in good hands with a professional photographer who has over 10 years of experience and knows how to make your family comfortable, so we can capture authentic smiles.
  • You want clean, high-end photography to document and celebrate this special time in your life and images that you will love!
  • You want options for printing your beautiful images on one of a kind, heirloom quality products for your home and gifting.

Q & A

Q:Are digital files included?

A: Absolutely! All of my session options for families include hand-edited digital files with a print release.


Q: When will i receive my photos?

A: After your session is truly when my work begins, as I take the time to hand- edit your family images. Each session varies slightly, but I aim to have your images fully edited within 30 days from the date of your session.


Q: When Should I book?

A: I reserve outdoor family sessions for the early evenings, when the light is most ideal. Schedules book up quickly. I suggest reserving your session date as soon as possible. During busy seasons (Summer & Fall) my schedule books several months in advance.
