Our Promise
I strive to document what is most important to you.  It sounds simple, but in the midst of our crazy, full lives pausing to appreciate our connection to the people we love most is profound.  Let’s slow down. Let’s make time to record the fleeting moments of childhood before they slip through our fingers.

In your home or on location in Boulder, we keep it simple and meaningful.  Sessions include a planning guide and phone call,  an hour an half shoot, and an online gallery for easy ordering. Our heirloom products, purchased separately, include handcrafted books,  wall prints, canvases, and digital files.  A minimum product order of $500 is required.




Honest and artistic images of a single child to mark the fleeting moments of childhood.  The session takes place in our window-lit studio and includes five black and white images for online proofing and one 16×20 fine art print with matte or canvas. Please contact us to see samples of this work.


New Baby
Pregnancy, newborn and baby sessions are bundled to record this magical transition into parenthood.  This collection of 3 sessions includes belly at 35 weeks, baby at 1-3 weeks, and family at 6-12 months.  Our heirloom products, purchased separately, include handcrafted books, wall prints, canvases and digital files. A minimum order of $500 is required. Individual pregnancy or newborn sessions are also available.
