Capture the moments you want to remember most.

You know what moments I'm talking about: the uncontrollable giggles, the warm cuddles, and the silly conversations. The moments when you are TOGETHER and when you FEEL the most intense JOY.

Sometimes these moments are perfect. Often they aren't. But they are still YOUR moments with YOUR people. And if you are like me, you never ever want to forget them.

I help families capture moments of
authentic connection, real emotion ,
and genuine love .




These moments mean the world to you.
Let's capture them as family photos so you remember them forever.

Time doesn’t slow down, even for life’s most precious & defining moments. And no matter how hard we try to hold on to them, they still slip past. It’s SOO bittersweet, isn't it? 

Family Photos are the best way to press pause & capture what matters most.

Your Toddler's New Best Friend

Just like you, my family is my greatest treasure. And I want the same thing for YOUR family that I want for mine: family photos of memories that we can savor forever. 

When I'm not capturing your memories, I'm making my own. You can find me planning our family's next getaway, sneaking out for boba tea, or meandering local hiking trails with my 3 kiddos in tow! 

Since 2018, I've been privileged to help hundreds of families capture and preserve the moments that matter most to them. As a lifestyle photographer in Greensboro, it's my passion and my purpose, and I'd love for your family to be next! 


What memories do you want to capture?

These moments are worth remembering.

I have some exciting but bittersweet news to share.  In August 2024, our family’s journey will be moving us to Greensboro, North Carolina!

Family of 5 with 3 young kids sitting in the sand at sunset at Indiana Dunes.
Whenever life is hurtling obstacles my way, I’m typically a “just-watch-me-overcome-and-persevere” kind of person rather than a “it-must-be-a-sign-the-universe-is-trying-to-tell-me-something” kind of person. It’s probably stubborness! (Just ask my husband or parents…) So when I tell you it took three tries to get the Armentrout’s family photos at Indiana Dunes this past summer, you’ll understand that I was going to make these beach photos happen no matter…
