Charlottesville, VA Family + Newborn Photographer

Between reheated coffee breaks and lego towers, we wonder if any of it matters.

But photos are the gift of a subtle tug that remind us where our treasures lie.

I want you to walk away with images that can fuel love on your hardest days, help you access your silliness when life feels too serious, and bring your simple joys front of mind. 

Bonus - my sessions make it easy and and fun to celebrate your people and enjoy the process. 

REMEMBER WHEN THEY FIT IN THE PALM OF YOUR HAND?

JOYFUL, LAID-BACK SESSIONS THAT CELEBRATE THE SIMPLE THINGS IN LIFE.

01

I’m also one of the first to meet your newborn baby, the one who will blow bubbles with your toddler, and the one who can capture the way your husband looks at you with a twinkle in his eye after 12 years of marriage. 

YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER AND RESIDENT TICKLE-FIGHT INSTIGATOR.

02

I BELIEVE IN

ditching the idea that family photos have to be stressful events with arguments about tucking your shirt in. 

03

I BELIEVE IN

celebrating wind-blown hair, baby back rolls, and jumping on the bed.

In my book, they are the most beautiful, real memories worth capturing. 

04

I BELIEVE IN

honoring all people and all stories. 

We're all humans. I aim to treat everyone I come across with care, attention, and love.

"We are so, so happy with the pictures. It's a really good reminder that we need to take the time to do this, even when everything isn't perfect (like attitudes beforehand, or the weather).....these sweet faces are just the best and we will treasure these photos forever."

You'll actually have fun.

a session with firefly means

I won't stuff your baby in a basket.

We celebrate personality.

No awkward props, stools, or forced smiles

If I could heat up your coffee for you, too, I would.
