The pictures we hold most dear are the ones that tell the stories of our lives. They’re the ones that linger in our mind’s eye and whisper truths to our hearts. We return to these pictures, over and over again, because there’s something precious we want to remember.
Through a natural and honest approach, we’ll work together to create timeless pieces of art that you can return to again and again to remember all that you are, and all that you are becoming.
Sessions are a bit longer than the industry standard so that we have time to settle in with each other, to walk slowly, for kiddos to run wild or pause for a break, and to settle into the energy of the location.
I don't offer “mini” or “power” shoots because my work isn’t only about the photographs, but the experience we’re co-creating — which is ultimately what makes my images so rich in texture and depth.
I always arrive with sketches of a plan, but perhaps more importantly, an intention for the day to take on a momentum of its own. It becomes a magical story of the lens when we become fully present to the moment and capture the details that unfold when playful curiosity meets the intimate spaces of your home or the vastness of the outdoors.
I’ll join you at your home and frame the real, intimate, and beautiful moments of your everyday life as they unfold naturally.
Time often disappears during these shoots, and what aptly remains when we’re complete is a collection of images that preserve the unique chapter you’re in with a distinguished attention to detail that you’ll forever hold close to your heart.
*Includes professional styling.
Come for the photographs, stay for the experience.
You choose where you want to go, and I’ll meet you there. We can find the patches of light between lofty Oregon pines, go for a hike to a waterfall, have a picnic on the beach in Mexico, watch the sunrise in Santa Monica, or build a campfire at your favorite camping spot — you name it, I’m there.
*Includes professional styling and 2 hours of driving time each way (additional travel time and/or costs will be billed separately — please reach out to learn more).
Get an album of photos you’ll treasure forever, plus a 6 - 8 minute video shot by my favorite artistic collaborator, my brother, that documents the tender sweetness of your story in motion and sound.
As soon as you inquire, I will review the information you provided and respond within (3) business days to answer any questions you may have and share available dates!
If you decide to move forward, I’ll send you a proposal where you can sign and pay the deposit to reserve your date.
After you’ve booked, we’ll schedule a creative planning call where I’ll learn about you and your vision for your shoot.
I’ll also connect you with my amazing stylist, who is truly masterful at using style to draw out and amplify your personality, as opposed to “styling you.” Rather than changing the way you look, her passion is to elevate your natural expression so we can authentically tell the story of who you are.
Note: Styling is always included in my shoots, but completely optional. If you want it, fantastic, but if you don’t want it, that’s totally fine, too!
It’s a co-creation and an adventure, and adventure means to expect the unexpected!
Regardless of the session you book, I will work with you to capture the emotional and ephemeral moments that are unique to you (and your family, if they are part of the shoot).
Whether we adventure somewhere together or explore the spaces of your own home, I want to document the truest, most strikingly real and beautiful versions of you.
Your full gallery will be delivered in 4 - 8 weeks (depending on the time of year) and I also offer the option for you to receive a stunning printed book of your images in addition to the digital copies!
In these complex times, we really appreciate documentation of all that is, and in some ways all that has been, and all that we hope for too… I can see it in the light shining through and the shadows, and in the beautiful expressions of my sweet and beloved family. It almost seems that the moments stand still as we honor our togetherness, and move as we acknowledge the changing landscape of time.
Natalie is a true gem. She highlights the profound beauty of the simple and authentic in both humans and nature. Seeing the beautiful family moments I feel as a mama captured visually is nothing short of magic, and I'm beyond grateful to have them.
With great pleasure. My Outdoor / Family / Lifestyle Session includes up to 2 hours of driving time each way, but I’m always open to additional travel — including air!
Reach out to me with more details and I would love to connect and create a custom quote for you.
It depends on the session you book!
I generally deliver between 150 - 250 photographs for In-Home Sessions, and between 175 - 275 for Outdoor / Family / Lifestyle Sessions as well as for Photo & Video Sessions.
Yes, yes, and yes!
