hi! Frances here!
Welcome to my little corner of the Internet!
I am an Arizona native with a wonderful husband, two very large dogs, and a passion for celebrating the little things! I am sappy and sarcastic, with an engineer's background and an adventurer's spirit. You would be equally likely to find me on a mountain, out at brunch, or curled up with a sci-fi novel and a very fuzzy blanket.
I love using photography to stop time and celebrate life!
what I believe
(and why it's important!)
"You pile up enough tomorrows, and you'll find
you're left with nothing but a lot of empty
yesterdays. I don't know about you, but I'd like
to make today worth remembering.""
While I haven't been on this earth all that long, I've had enough joy and sorrow already to know that each moment is precious. The big ones, absolutely, but the magic is in the little things.
Finding ways to preserve those genuine, incredible moments is the single-most exciting part about photography for me!
how I photograph
My goal in every session is to craft tangible memories, reminders
that you made the most of each day. I seek out ways for you
to feel like yourself and maybe even have some fun while I
document authentic emotion, both silly and serious.
It's not about running down a pose list; it's telling your story.
This is true of couples and seniors, families and pending parents. I bring the same approach to headshots and personal branding because I believe that showing your honest self is how you put your best self out there!
if anything I just said speaks to you
When you're ready to dance around a little, laugh a lot, and above all, celebrate life,
please reach out!
I would be honored to capture your moment.
