I believe you don’t need wild props or over-the-top outfits to fill galleries with breathtaking photos. I believe genuine joy is the most beautiful accessory and that the real moments are the ones you’ll want to relive over and over again. Because of this, I’ve devoted myself to creating a photography experience that gives you and your family the space to thrive. Then, we will transform those moments of connection into timeless art.

WHEN YOU’RE LOOKING FOR AUTHENTIC MOMENTS, THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME
The beauty of at-home sessions with AFP is that you’re already in your element. Your favorite moments in your every day take place right here. We start at your house, finding the best spots in your outdoor spaces to capture what makes your family unique. If after a bit we want to go a little further a field, I’m down for going to the park around the corner or riding some bikes on the sidewalk! In the end, my goal is to capture your family in context – because when a place has meaning for you, it tells part of the story in a way that generic parks or other places just can’t.
Over the course of the session, we’ll do everything from crazy games to intimate cuddles, the whole chaotic gang together, smaller groups, and individual portraits. If your family has a special thing you love to do, let’s capture it! But don’t worry about figuring out what to make happen.
I take the time to truly get to know you in order to capture the moments that mean the most to you. Sessions are tender, wild, loving, silly, and above all, authentic.
