I’m a bi-coastal photographer, from CA to PA, and fan of unposed, giddy-in-love, melt-my-lenses-editorial-style moments … oh, and a t-shirts and jeans.

Woodsy Engagement Session

Eleven years ago I slung a camera strap around my neck, and I’ve been capturing moments and memories that will be cherished for generations to come ever since. My goal? Put you at ease in front of the camera and document what matters and giving you something timeless in a fleeting world.

A trend I’m seeing a lot in the past few years is families booking extended family sessions. Many times, the last portrait you have of your entire family is from a wedding. This family shared that same story and they decided to change that while enjoying a beautiful day together in Tahoe. Including extended family […]

The Rife Family Extended Family Session

  The winter “off season” means a slowed pace and more time for exploring. This place, Lake Tahoe, is one of the most photographed locations on the planet for a reason. That’s a made up claim – I’m simply going by the amount of people pulled over taking pictures any time I’m driving. There are a lot!  […]

5 Ways to Nail Your Engagement Session

    “We’re going to need all the help we can get.” “We’re so awkward in front of the camera.” I’ve heard this time and time again and always get excited to prove you wrong. I heard these before this shoot and thought, “There is no freaking way you two will be awkward.” If anything, […]

  Multitasking doesn’t work. It did when I waited tables for 8 years during and after college. But in business now, with emails, edits, bookings and phone nearby… forget it. There are so many apps out there to help in some ways, but this hack doesn’t cost a dime, a download, or even your phone […]

  This week I’m dusting off the archives! Some wedding seasons of the past just got too busy that I only blogged a sneak peek and the full post never happened. So, I’m changing that since these weddings deserve to have their moment! This is the wedding of Marius and Jackie in beautiful Blairsden, CA- […]

If this session doesn’t make you smile, you need to go do some soul searching. When I arrive to a newborn shoot, there are a few loose plans but really, I like to let things just happen. This was a slam dunk example of how letting big sister do her thing and jump in when […]

The Burckhard Family Newborn Session

  I’m back in New Hope, Pennsylvania currently and love my extended visits back here! When I was in high school, a dear friend lived at Holly Hedge Estate. We all knew it was a special place, but as an adult coming back and photographing an event here, it really sunk in just how remarkable […]

  You’re meeting with potential photographers and figure you’ll just wing it and see where the conversation goes. When I meet/FaceTime/chat with a newly engaged couple, we often get so wrapped up in chatting about everything else that by the time I ask if they have any particular questions for me, there may be a […]
