Hi, I'm summer

I’m a storyteller at heart and drawn to life’s little intricacies, chasing light and shenanigans of all kinds. I'm an artist by trade, and my camera is my tool. A lens to show you how I see the world and how I see you. For as long as I can remember, I've been the family and friend photographer-- starting with Polaroids and disposable cameras back in elementary school (hello, 1980s). I love nostalgia, giggling over ridiculous outfits

and pastimes, and remembering the people and memories from the past. Preserving life continues to be a huge part of my persona; now I just do it with more intention and style.

I love people and observing human connection and personality. I love learning the stories behind the faces. I aim to bring out unique traits, the details that make you who you are. The laugh lines and freckles, smiles with baby teeth and one big ol' gap, the wild children who are always on the move (I have 2 of those!), the everyday gestures you might overlook but never want to forget. Let's focus on what's most important to you right now.

Kind Words

Summer has taken some of the most important photos of my life. From newborn photos to family photos and all have far exceeded my expectations. Even with my kids being less than cooperative she manages to capture the moments in between that mean the most. She's got such a creative eye for the out of ordinary photos. I highly, highly recommend her to anyone.
