How I started.....

Show More

My passions in life include my camera, babies, families with small children, rock climbing,  traveling, the starriest of nights, and singing Disney songs with my nieces and nephews. I have been blessed with a wonderful career in Pediatric Cancer Research and wanted to find a way to highlight the beautiful lives of families, outside of the hospital. I created The Darling Lens as a way to channel this love into providing beautiful and timeless photos for all families. 

As a young kid, I enjoyed finding (or creating) the "moodiest" shots possible. I half-buried keys in the sand or carefully placed a bright dandelion on a broken down, mossy bench. This grew into more sophisticated photography of gorgeous landscapes and traveling to capture the galactic center of our Milky Way Galaxy. 

Your baby's safety is my number one priority during our entire time together, I am well versed in working with children from one day old to beyond. I am certified in First Aid/CPR but I also have my Child and Baby specific First Aid/CPR certification.


In addition, I completed the Safety Education course through Accredited Professional Newborn Photographers International. It focuses on the well-being and safety precautions of baby during a photo shoot.

I am stoked you're here and can't wait to hear your visions and dreams as we plan for your new bundles arrival!
