"My goal is to create Styled Portrait Photography for        Babes of All Ages as told thru a 'Lived-In' Story Lens."

ABout babes + the bungalow

Babes and the Bungalow offers uniquely styled portrait photography for babes of all ages. Think of them as photographic stories capturing the gift of the present


for The 'Lil Babes:

As a mother of two little boys, I'm inspired to capture the little nuances and magic of childhood. I'd be honored to photograph your little ones through my lens of whimsically-styled storytelling. I love developing unique themes you'll want to treasure forever and ever.

for babes 21+:

I've set up a cozy little studio to envelope your spirit, and capture your femininity to celebrate this most special time in your life—the here and now.


Whether you're a mom, a bride-to-be, or a beauty in her 20s, 30s, 40s and beyond—You'll consider my little bungalow the perfect escape from the day-to-day. Here, there are no judgments, errands, or anything that ever feels uncomfortable—just the right to feel beautiful in your own skin.

This isn't your typical boudoir shoot (these are more like intimates you wouldn't be ashamed to show to your grandma) and I'm not your typical photographer. I'm a complete newbie to the world of photography, but with it, I bring years of experience in the areas of beauty and bridal, a deep love for set design, and a unique eye for celebrating both the modest and the sensual. Let's make it a date. PJ's welcome. 


My approach to photographing mothers and children comes from the 'life lens' of being a mom.




visual STORYTELLER / content creator / mother

After five years of producing content for coveted lifestyle sites and beauty bibles across the web, I decided to pick up the camera and tell the narrative I've often seen in my mind's eye. I've loved conceptualizing and art-directing photoshoots for the web, and now I shift my talents behind the lens to capture confidence and adoration for babes of all ages. Let my experiences in bridal, branding, and beauty serve YOU with images you'll adore.
