Whether during labor or when your child  is 5 days, 5 months, or 5 years old. 

I believe it's important for our children to grow up with portraits on our walls where they can see mom and dad expressing emotion and love for each other and for them. 

My focus is on creating authentic art and heartfelt portraits that convey the love, tenderness and joy you experience throughout the stages of your motherhood journey. The unique milestones and fleeting moments that make up this precious time. Using natural light, simple and candid portraits with soft and timeless aesthetic; my hope is to evoke feeling, to tell your story, and convey the depth of your family connection. 

Take the photos 

You are worth it. 

Unfortunately, I hear all too often how a mom just like you, regrets not having their birth story documented, or images of this beautiful stage of life taken. 

Don't let that be you.

  • sees marriage as holy
  • is at the center of family
  • gave each child as a gift
  • sees motherhood as discipleship
  • I believe God is worth everything

I believe God:

To be honest, this has absolutely nothing to do with me. But just to be sure if we may be a good fit: I've co-slept, baby wore, and even cloth diapered. Extended breastfeeding, delayed cord clamping, essential oil using, good ole crunchy mom. 

I do want you to know who I am and what my beliefs are, as they are what I bring into your birth space and each session. 
I named my business Honey Works because first and foremost, I am a Christian, Daughter of The King. Being a Christian comes first, before being a wife, before being a mother, and before being a business owner, photographer, and filmmaker. My faith is what drives this business, what drives me to document birth and families. It is through my belief in Christ that I have the heart to photograph the miracle of birth and the beauty that is motherhood. I serve every mom and family through that lens.  It's an honor to document your family and birth. My hope is that I can serve your family representing Christ. My desire is to show you just how beautiful motherhood is while you are in the thick of it. To see this amazing, beautiful, sacred, God given miracle the way it was intended. These are the most important days of your life. Your birth is the moment that changes history and brings a new present. Becoming mother. 

Let's get started

- Psalm 24: 13-14
Honey from the comb is sweet to your taste. Know also that wisdom is like honey for you: if you find it, there is a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cutoff.

I know where you're coming from

You want to walk into your home and see those beautiful images of your family displayed throughout your walls. Bringing the feeling of safety, love, and connection flooding your senses when you walk in the door. 

Or let your children flip through an album of one of the biggest days of your life. The birth of your child. 

But I get it, life is just so so busy.

Let me take care of everything for you. 

I'm REady

I missed out on every single opportunity to document my kids, I don't have any maternity, newborn or family photos from when they were younger. 

And it breaks my heart.

My Philosophy

1. Birth is an incredibly sacred place. I belive in the power of psychological birth, letting you labor undisturbed, trusting your body. 

2. Your husband has the most vital role in your birth space, supporting you, in a way that is uniquely designed just for him. 

3. You family is truly perfect, imperfections and all. There is only one family like yours. Celebrate it. 

4.  You were made to be a mother, their mother. There is no other person for these kiddos that have been given into your hands. 

5. These years really do fly by. Having photographs and film are the only way to bring the past to the present. For memories truly unique to your family, to let you legacy live on.
