- for life -

my family is my everything

I was blessed with a set of parents who sacrificed endlessly for their children.  With three older brothers who taught me how to be a strong woman.  By the seemingly infinite support and patience of my husband, Jarett. And by the arrival of my sweet baby boy, Wyatt.  Life can be messy, but I believe that silver linings often surpass the pot of gold.  And I am passionate about making my client's lives better every day.  

I love being a photographer. But what makes my heart pound the hardest isn't click of the shutter - it's the impact my images have on the lives of my "Lifers." I have been lucky enough to call myself their family historian for years - from wedding, to baby, to whatever life brings them next. They are people who view photography as art and who love the honest, sweet stories I tell with my camera. My Lifers are counting on me to preserve their Visual Legacy. For their children, and their children's children. And I could not be more proud to call myself their Photographer For Life.

My professional career has been the pursuit of a perfect synergy between communication, relationships and innovation. When I fell in love with photography and decided to turn my passion into a career, I knew I wanted to provide a different service than other photographers. 

The more I thought about it, the more it made sense - if you love your wedding or newborn photographer, why would you want to find a new one at the next life stage? And beyond that, why would you invest in a photographer for a day who is not invested in keeping you as a Client for Life? So here is what makes me different: I want to document all the fleeting, beautiful moments in your family history in an honest and unscripted way, from start to finish. And I want to give you an incredible experience when we're doing it. Not just for a day, or an hour, but for your life journey. 

why kkp?

I want these memories to be fresh for you each morning when you're drinking coffee, or folding laundry in the living room, or when you're all gathered around the table at the end of the day. I want these photographs to live outside the computer and inside your home, so that one day your grandchildren, and their children, will know them, too. So that one day, they will know YOU. 

More than anything
