• Welcome! I'm Faye and I have been capturing and preserving life's important moments for over 18 years. Over the years I have photographed a variety of subjects. However, I'm most passionate about families and weddings. I'm confident my experience, compassion for others and my obsession for gorgeous light will result in beautiful heirloom photos to be cherished for lifetimes to come. If you are new to the site, peek through my portfolio. Or you may want to scroll down through the blog to view my most recent work along with some of my personal adventures. Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

I took my husband Andy and our daughters Evie and Josie out for a mini session back in early May.   I was feeling a little rusty coming off the slow winter season and thought it would be fun and a good challenge to photograph my own family.  Fun???  YES!!!!!    Challenging????  Oh my goodness  YES!!!!  Luckily my girls are wonderful children….for other people LOL!  For their parents……well….I think they are pretty close to most kiddos at giving us a hard time and being crazy.  Add Andy who’s not a fan of photos (most guys I know don’t enjoy photo shoots) AND he was chewing gum the whole time.   Let’s just say I kept it under 25 minutes!   I LOVE how these turned out and I think I need to do a mini session of them once a year.

This first photo captures the three of them so well!  They are 4 and 7….they are loving but FULL of energy but push us to the limit and test us as parents ALL THE TIME!!!  This parenting gig is amazing and I wouldn’t trade it for the world….but I’ll be real here internet friends.  It’s hard!  REALLY HARD!   Having said that I wouldn’t want to be going through parenting with anyone else!   Andy I hope you have an amazing Father’s day!   Our girls are blessed to have you as their daddy!
