Dear women—this is for you. You know that feeling when you find yourself alone at a secluded lake and you dive into that lake in your birthday suit? The rush, the naturalness, the elation. That's what these sessions are about.

This one if for the mama's who want to remember this unique moment in time. I've planned these shoots all over the Sierra Nevada and find them so powerful. It's a way to give back to yourself during this stage of life you're in.

Maternity Session

I am located in Mammoth Lakes, CA—a little community nestled among the adventure ready Sierra Nevada. Although I spend my winters in Southern Utah and the red walls of Zion National Park.

Where are you located?

It depends on the shoot—the duration, what we end up doing, etc. These will be edited, high resolution images edited by yours truly and delivered within one week of our time together.

How Many Images Are Included?

Have you ever been out on a trail, only to find it completely trashed? Leave No Trace is a set of intentions that, at the heart of it, helps people think about how they can engage in the outdoors while leaving the least impact. 

What is leave no trace?

I accept payments online! I ask for a retainer at the time of booking and the remaining amount the day before our shoot. :)

How Does Payment Work?

Click on the SIGN ME UP button down below and fill out the form—give me all the juicy details and I'll get back to you ASAP with the next steps!

How Do I Book You?

SAME HERE! I am a major dork and odd ball myself. And I really love people. You have nothing to prove with getting photos taken. If you're feeling awkward, we'll work together to find something that feels more natural for you.

But we are super awkward...

In order to book your date, I require a non-refundable retainer. If you have to cancel, I will work with you to try and reschedule/find a better time for you that fits my availability!

What If We Cancel/Reschedule Our Date?

I have been a photographer for 14 years–it was a tool that helped me find myself as a lost teenager and I've been using it to show people the beauty I see (thats you!) ever since. 

How Long Have You Been A Photographer?

As long as the location allows it, heck yes you can! I love dogs so so much. I just ask you might bring a friend along to help be dog wrangler for when we want a few photos without your perfect fur baby.

Can we bring the doggo?

If there is bad weather where we had planned to go, I'm going to work some magic and find an alternate location for us to shoot at! If that doesn't work then we'll explore other times we could move the shoot to.

What Happens If The Weather Is Bad?

First and foremost, I think it's important to wear something that makes you feel most like yourself. The more comfortable you are, the more that will shine through in photos! I do offer a what to wear guide for each specific location we may go to! This will be emailed to you during our planning process

What Do We Wear To Our Photoshoot?

Adventure Sessions are 1-2 hour photo sessions typically used for proposals, engagements, anniversaries, or just because. We pick one or two close locations and hike up to two miles. Note, this package does not fit as an option for elopements — your wild day deserves more time and attention than that!

What is an adventure session?

For any session that isn't a wedding or elopement, the turnaround time is 2 weeks! Elopements and weddings take 10 weeks for the final images to be delivered. However—I will send a sneak peak within a week of our time together!

What Is Your Turnaround?

I do not charge travel fees for any local to Mono/Inyo County/Southern Utah locations—if we create a customized experience that reaches beyond the Eastern Sierra, travel fees will be included in the price!

How Does Travel Expenses Work?

Absolutely. I'm here to help pick the perfect location, recommend vendors, create a time line for your elopement, and SO much more. I love the planning process!

Do You Help In The Planning Process?

I do! I photograph families seasonally in and around Mammoth Lakes, CA. You can find more of that work on the families page.
