Montrose, CO.  Travel is welcome…

what is the best way to contact you?

If you are interested in a session please fill out my contact form and I will get back to you within 48 hours by email.

what type of photography do you shoot?

I am a Wedding and Lifestyle photographer.  As a lifestyle photographer I document Families, Newborns, Maternity and Couples authentically.  I am a deep feeler that is passionate about capturing the special moments in your life.  From the day you say I do to those precious weeks following the birth of your first child.


what kind of photographer are you?

I am a natural light lifestyle photographer who believes the best photographs are those that are authentic and true to you, your family and your story.  I put my heart and soul into producing images that shows the love, laughter and even tears that are truly meant to be remembered years down the road. Those that your sons and daughters will pull out one day and smile upon.  If you are looking for everyone lined up saying cheese to the camera I am not the photographer for you.  But if you are looking for details of your daughters bare toes in the dirt or your newborn cuddled in the nook of your neck then I would be honored to be the one to capture your story of life.

how far in advance should we book?

This depends on the time of year. From January to July I book out 2-3 weeks. The busiest time of year is August through November and I book out at least 4 weeks in advance.  I take a limited number of Weddings per year and these can book out 6 months to a year in advance.

where will we shoot?

Sessions are held on location in a beautiful outdoor setting or in your home.  If there is a place that is special to you or your family I am always up for that. Otherwise, I have several outdoor locations I can suggest.

what time of day do you shoot?

Outdoor sessions are booked at sunrise or 1 – 1 and 1/2 hours before sunset, so the time will greatly depend on the season. In summer this could be around 7:30pm and in winter this could be at 3:30pm.  Indoor sessions are scheduled anywhere between 10:00am to 2:00pm  and we can discuss the best options for you.

how long is the session?

Lifestyle sessions are anywhere from 1-2 hours.

do you help us plan for our session?

After receiving your registration form I will contact you with any questions I may have in order to plan your session as you imagine it to be. We will discuss time of day, location, what to wear, as well as anything else you would like. When planning wardrobe please click here for style and color ideas as well as some of my favorite looks:  childhood wardrobe,  family wardrobe  , maternity wardrobe , and couples wardrobe.  For Wedding clients, before booking,  I will meet with you over coffee to chat about all the important details of your day to make sure that what I offer fits your needs.  I, also,  provide my Wedding Day guide full of good information to help you know what to expect on your big day.
