I don’t normally look like this. Hair curled, make up done, dressed like I put thought into my outfit. Nope. You’ll usually find me in some variation of exercise pants, messy bun, likely yesterday’s mascara, and most certainly a cup of coffee in my hands. Why? Because I have 4 kids, so my life pretty much revolves around them. My eldest is Harper, the one who made me a mama. Then I have fraternal twin girls, Isabel and Grace. And last comes my sweet boy, Hollis. I am so grateful for each and every one of them, and what they’ve taught me about motherhood and life beyond that. When I’m not being a mom boss, I am drawn to my creative outlet: photography.
My children are the people who made me passionate about documenting this stage of life, and completely embracing the chaos that it is. I’ve learned that it’s important to capture the day to day reality, not just how we think it should look when we design our annual Christmas card photo. I want to box up this little sliver of your life so you’ll remember it always. It’s the best gift you can give yourself, because even though you think you’ll remember, you won’t. Time passes so quickly, and memories fade. I want to be there and help tell your story, your truth, your journey.
I can’t wait to meet you and learn more about your crazy, beautiful life.

Mia is amazing! She did our newborn photos and captured such amazing photos. Not only do I LOVE her style, she is so patient and takes her time getting just the right shot. Not to mention she’s a baby whisperer and was able to calm my screaming baby down for photos!! Obsessed with how they turned out and we can’t wait to work with Mia in the future!
Mia was an absolute joy to work with. She helped us find a beautiful location, even in ugly February weather. She was great with our 6 month old daughter and really captured her personality! We were so excited when we received our sneak peek the next day and are thrilled with all the photos we received. We are looking forward to the next time we get to work with Mia again!
My newborn is now two months old and I just took some time to really look at our maternity and newborn photos. They are so beautiful! They turned out better then I could have imagined - I feel like I looked beautiful in my maternity photos despite feeling like I had a big belly! The family and newborn pictures (our baby looks so angelic) is something I will treasure for a lifetime! Mia is warm, talented, easy to work with, extremely responsive to any questions, etc. I will not be looking elsewhere when we want family photos in the future.
