Isn’t it funny how a song can stir up all your emotions, take you back in time and remind you of the people you love? How they can fill you full of hope and happiness, tug at your, tell a story, and bring you to tears.

You don’t just hear music; you feel it. That is what I want for you, for your photos. I want to write your love song. I want to create images that touch your heart, photos that capture the real you, chaos, and all. I want to show you what I see, which is how this life you’ve made is a beautiful work of art.

XOXO, Cindy

"All of these lines across me face
tell you the story of who I am

So many stories of where i've been
and how i got to where i am

but these stories don't mean anything
if you got no onw to tell the to

its true... I was made for you "

client reviews


AMAZING!!! Cindy truly captured our family’s connection. She not only told our story perfectly through her lens, but she captured pure magic. Cindy is ridiculously talented, patient, professional, prompt, and very knowledgeable when it comes to fashion. I was a bit overwhelmed with what we should wear, but she guided me through the process and suggested attire that fit us perfectly.

On another note, the location she took our family to was simply a dream. The beach was stunning, especially during sunset! As a busy mom of three, it is challenging getting my kids out during sunset, but it was 100% worth it. She also made the photoshoot FUN and stress-free, which is a huge bonus with kids.

I honestly cannot thank Cindy enough! Please do not hesitate to book Cindy for family photos as you will not regret the experience. Your photoshoot will be a memory that you will never forget and that you will treasure for a lifetime.

“Such a unique and wonderful experience! I loved the guidance in picking outfits, the research of a gorgeous location and her willingness to work with my crazy family of 5 young children. I’m pretty sure this is the first time my kids had fun at a photo shoot. I’m not sure how she did it, but Cindy captured my family so well. She created works of art that I will cherish forever!”

I'm Already Crying

These are so special and beautiful that they moved me to tears . You captured my new little family so beautifully.

Cindy made our photoshoot so comfortable and enjoyable even with a “quarantine” photoshoot. She made our session so effortless & fun that we were able to relax and be ourselves. My husband doesn’t always enjoy taking photos and after our session, he said that he had a really good time! We were able to just enjoy spending time together and Cindy caught some natural moments that were so special. Nothing was forced or posed and because of that, the photos really capture “us” and feel so real.

The photos she took are some that I’ll cherish forever.
