Timeless, true-to-you photos that tell your family’s story

Family, Newborn, and Maternity Photography in Central Iowa


Hey mama, I see you. And I get it:

Between endless snack requests, revolving nap schedules, and last minute Target runs, it’s easy to get so lost in the weeds of motherhood you forget to see the big picture. Sure, you’d love to have family photos, but just thinking about the time, effort, and energy it takes to get everyone ready is enough to make you want to throw in the towel! Still, you want to capture the messy magic of the season you’re in, because you know it won’t last forever…

Raising tiny humans is the best and hardest thing you’ve ever done.

That’s where I come in.

I’m here to make the experience of taking family photos
just as joyful as looking at them.

I’m a photographer, proud mama, and Aldi loyalist chasing magical moments across Central Iowa. With two energetic kiddos on my hands, I know how hectic life can get. I also know that long after the tiny fingerprints on your fridge fade, the photos will remain. And that’s why I’m on a mission to encourage busy mamas on their journeys by telling their family’s story through the lens of my camera. So whether you want to capture your beautiful baby bump or your rambunctious toddler, I’ve got you covered. You ready?


Hey there!

I’m Claire and I handle the documenting, so you can actually enjoy the moment (and be in the photos for once)!


Celebrate your family’s everyday with radiant, personality-packed photos you can’t stop showing off (you and Grandma, that is).

Let’s capture photos as lively as your littles, shall we?

Session Types

You’ve done your bedtime routine a thousand times—but do you have any photos of it?! Let’s preserve these precious memories long after your kiddos can put themselves to bed.

Mom and Me

It’s your turn to get in front of the camera, mama! I’ll capture the deep love and crazy shenanigans you and your child share.

“The next day, Claire posted a teaser of our session on social media and yep, I cried. Happiness, laughter, wonder—beautiful photos including a stunning portrait of Oliver that is my favorite to this day. Claire’s talent and ability to capture even the smallest moments will leave you with the best surprise of photos to treasure for a lifetime.”

"Our maternity pictures are out of this world amazing! I gasped over and over and then the tears came. They are everything I wanted and then some. I am pretty critical of pictures of myself but Claire was able to capture the beauty of the gigantic bump and the love my husband and I share. Her personality made it easy to smile and fun for us. Mostly highly recommend!"
