Welcome, I'm Lisa

No backdrops, awkward poses, matching outfits, forced smiles at the camera, or Pinterest boards here. Documentary photography is a stress free photojournalistic approach that allows everyone to release the unrealistic (and highly overrated) idea of perfection. Sessions can take place in the comfort of your own home or we can venture out into the world together. I’ll act as your family historian during our time together, and when it’s all said and done, you’ll see that even the most mundane days are precious, magical, and 100% worth remembering. We’ll create something so authentic and pure that you'll be overwhelmed with gratitude when looking back at what once was... a legitimate account of your kin's dynamics, routines, activities, and traditions. These images will become beloved keepsakes that you’ll proudly (and fondly) share with future generations. People from all walks of life are welcome, fascinating, and should be captured. The process is simple and I’m here to guide you every step of the way.


First Days


Welcome to the wild ride known as Parenthood.



Chronicled in all your honest and unscripted glory.



Put the planning behind and enjoy.



She has captured the spirit of our family beautifully and whilst being incredibly easy to speak with, has produced stunning shots. We have finally found someone that we can trust to document our lives for many years to come.”
