Why Choose Me?

Finding the perfect photographer to compliment you and your family can be tough.  There are so many photographers and choosing one can seem overwhelming!  I want to make choosing a photographer an easy and stress free process!      
If you already love my work, check out the reasons below of why you should choose me!  
Wild Rumpus_001-trainedartist
I received my BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute and my MA from Webster University.  I've dedicated all of my adult life to refining and mastering my creative abilities.  For you, that means that I will think thoughtfully and creatively about your session to produce uniquely personal and artistic images.
My goal is to create a fun and relaxed experience for you and your family.  Your session will be stress free and full of laughter
I want to capture your real moments.  I'll coach you on how to feel comfortable in front of the camera so that your final images represent you.   
I love light.  And while most photographers only rely on natural light, I use simple (but effective) external lighting.  This allows me to command the light and ultimately results in better quality images.     
kids will love me
I don't want to brag but kids love me!  As a mother of two (twin toddlers!) and a prior art teacher, I'm very well versed in the language of kiddos.  With a full bag of tricks and endless patience, I promise to capture your little one's natural moments.  

Pretty good reasons, right?!

I'd love to hear from you!
