My passion for photography started when I was young, and I attended my first college course for it in 2012. Since then I have been continuing to develop my skills. There is always room for growth! Part of that growth was becoming a postpartum doula with Itsabelly, so I try to apply that training to my sessions as much as possible. I'm not just here for your newborns, I'm here for you too! I know what a huge accomplishment it is for you to get out of the house in one piece, let alone attend a photo session.
When it comes to your photos I love to capture personalities. That is not to say that I don't use props and posing, of course, but my goal is to capture those real, genuine moments, giggles from kiddos, and cute quirks and features of new babies. I love to see your unique personalities shine bright through my lens. I can't wait to capture your memories for you!
I have always loved working with families and children, so in my teens and young adulthood I was usually nannying, working in daycares, or practicing photography with the families in my life.
Now I am a postpartum doula and photographer, I'm married to the coolest guy in the world, and we have 2 kiddos of our own! We had met in California, adventured in Texas, and settled down in Vancouver, WA. Once here, I got involved in the childbirth community and became a doula with Itsabelly. I try to utilize my doula training and experience in my sessions; you should feel comfortable with whomever is handling your newborn!
When I'm not working I can be found spending time or exploring with my family, playing video games, and knitting or crafting.
