Novel Photographie

I have been a portrait and family photographer for the last 10 years. I took a brief hiatus after the birth of my third child a few years ago, but have recently re-established my business and am taking on sessions once again!
Honesty and whimsy are at the heart of my work. Rooted in nostalgia, I strive to create simple, emotive images that stand the test of time... images that pull you in and really move you when you look back at them. It is my goal to incorporate these into your session in an artistic way. Having taken photos of my own family for so many years, I've found that there really is beauty in even the mundane. I have found those images truly move me and tend to speak to my client in a true and meaningful way - it is where the beautiful memories lie.
I try to take an organic/natural approach to my sessions and I hope that you get a feel for that when looking at the photos on my site. My hope for my work and your photos, is that you come away with a beautiful blend of art and emotion -- images that capture the authenticity of who you really are.
