If you know family is not just the most important thing, it's everything...
If you want to capture your family just the way it is...
If you aren't into the traditional "sit and smile" pretty pictures...
Then this is for you.

For me, as a Joshua Tree Family Photographer, capturing a family just as they are is what it's all about. I don't want to force smiles, or force anyone to sit and look at the camera. I would much rather capture you and your family interacting naturally together and just enjoying each other's company.

A little bit about my style: I am a natural light photographer who loves to capture families in a beautiful outdoor location that means something to that family. I also love capturing families in the comfort of their own homes. Whether it's playing together through the desert at Joshua Tree National Park, or baking cookies together in your home, I want to see who you are as a family and I want to capture that so you'll always have it to look back on and remember. I use a mixture of color and black and white images to portray the emotion of the moments I capture. I offer a more lifestyle photography with light, directional posing when needed.

What I love about family photography: Personally, I love the way so many personalities make up a whole unit. Your family dynamic is unique to you. No two families are the same, and I love that! It keeps things interesting for me. I love to capture families just being themselves. Goofy, fun, playful. It truly brings joy to my life to able to photograph families spending time together.

Why family photography is important: In my honest opinion, family photographs aren't captured nearly as often as they should be. As a kid, and even now as an adult, one of my favorite things to do was/is look through old family albums to see what everyone was like "back then". I believe it is SO IMPORTANT to print your family photos. Whether it's in an album, or on a metal print, or a bunch of photographs that make the shape of a tree on your wall, having these photos is what matters. Having photos that you can acutally touch and feel is something I believe every family not only SHOULD have, but NEEDS to have.
