The Pendergrass Family


"How about we get a blanket and you all just be YOU. I am not here."

I said these words after I could tell Kasha (mama bear of the clan) was nervous because her little ones were so full of energy. I didn’t mind their excitement - I greatly welcomed it!

Candids are the best in my book and when there is pressure to “pose” and “be cute” - nine times out of ten the images don’t turn out as authentic and everyone remembers how awkward the session was.

I believe photo shoots should capture moments full of joy and comfort.

“Thank you for capturing US! It was so refreshing to have a photographer who let all of us (crazy kids and all) be ourselves.”

Receiving messages like this from the family make me feel like the luckiest girl in the world! Not only do I get to do what I love everyday, I’m able to touch peoples lives and capture REAL timeless moments that they will be able to look back on for generations to come.
