Vairdy Photography, Event Photography Sponsor


My love of love inspires me to photograph children and their families. By letting life unfold organically in front of my camera, I seek to capture your most fleeting moments. I try to minimize posing, yet offer subtle direction. I love to encourage my clients to simply be themselves and really let the children decide the pace of the session. I use natural lighting and meaningful locations to create lovable fine art portraits to proudly display in your home.

As a mother of two, I take great pride in celebrating my family’s love. Our walls are brimming with beautiful images and having my children and a few photobooks in my lap is a moment that I always cherish.
