Tell us about a day in the life of a professional photographer …

We’ll use a family session for example ~ check and double check camera equipment and notes for the shoot coming up. Spend the day enjoying my kids and family. Head off to the family shoot at golden hour at a beautiful location. Capture the family’s connection and be in awe of the beauty of people. Stay up late editing and perfecting imgaes.

Any memorable moments?

Being able to photograph the tremendous milestone of a one year old who had his one year ‘heartiversary’ – celebrating his growth and strength since his first open heart surgery.

If you could photograph 1 thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Mummas holding onto their growing children wishing they could stay in this moment forever. ❤️
