chant? IT'S short for chantri :)

When I became a mom, photography became my most cherished passion. Turning my passion into purpose by capturing life for my family & for others gives me an incredible amount of joy. A decade later I still do what I love and love what I do.
NEWBORN & BIRTH STORY
There is only one day in your life that the birth of your child takes place. One. Chances are in years to come you'll try and recall details of this day it'll all be a little fuzzy. With a beautifully documented Birth Story these images will serve as a tangible time machine to the best day of your life! The day you're heart burst with gratitude, wonderment and awe. The day you experienced for the first time a new caliber of love.
The first week of life with a newborn is but a blur - capture the sweet purity of your baby by investing in a creative newborn session to remember the little details of their perfect newness.
They grow up so fast! Take advantage of the CAPTURE LIFE PROJECT monthly styled shoots.
HIGH SCHOOL seniors
And in the blink on an eye, they are young adults preparing for high school graduation. The moment between childhood & adulthood. My goal is to capture this exciting stage of life in a creative & fun way.
EVENTS & PARties
I believe every party needs a "documenter" and that the most cherished images are ones with mom & dad IN them, not behind the camera. I'll be your little candid eye to capture these stages in life.
When two people fall in love and begin a new unity of life. Love is a beautiful thing, especially when you have beautiful engagement photos!
The day you've been anticipating your whole life. After the decorations come down, the dress is stored, the flowers have wilted, the one investment that is still tangible is beautiful images that you can look back on so you never forget that special day your life changed forever. This is the one investment of your wedding planning that you have forever. I love to document your love story & create tangible memories for your lifetime & generations to come.
Awe, the feeling when you have updated family pictures, there's really nothing like it! Make no mistake - I'm a mother too and I know it can be overwhelming & stressful - it's my job to make it fun & painless! The most you need to stress about is how to coordinate outfits- and even that I'll help you with! I also know just how important it is to update your family pictures often, so I've make it very easy to do so with very reasonably prices spring & fall specials.
