speckled bird art – real. life. captured. bio picture
  • the speckled bird art blog

    I am a modern family photographer. At your photo session, expect to play. Expect to be silly. Expect this to be a completely different photo session than you have ever experienced before. My goal is to capture real life and those genuine smiles, soulful eyes, laughter, (and sometimes tears) that encompass the richness and fulness of the lives we lead. We each have a story to tell, and I hope to capture for you a glimpse of that story.

    Whether you want to remember the excitement of your engagment and wedding, anticipation surrounding your pregnancy, the freshness of your newborn, the giggles of your baby, the newfound independence of your toddler, the joy of childhood, or the personality of your high school senior, Speckled Bird Art Photography will capture each important milestone of your life in a creative, unique, and artistic way.

    Check out the website in the PORTFOLIO section above, and send me an email to book your unforgettable photo session with me. I can't wait to meet you.

Reno-Sparks Family Photographer | Life with Teenage Boys

I really like this family. A lot.

Melissa wanted me to capture a series of photos to hang on their wall of everyone just being themselves. I love how they turned out.

I also love the extended family photos…

Certain teenage boys can be hard to wrangle.

Of course, apparently the apple doesn’t fall far from the proverbial tree.

They chose this one to hang on their wall as a large canvas print. Great choice!

Also. I love this collage of the brothers. They crack me right up.

I travel to the Reno/Sparks area several times a year. If you live there and would like a family photo session of your own, use the “contact” tab above and send me an email! I would love to photograph your family.
