About

I am the heart and soul behind Nightingale and Willow Photography.  I need coffee paired with my oxygen and Jesus paired with my soul. I crush on my husband like we are still newlyweds, I sing and dance while I clean my house, and I will probably say something super awkward during the first five minutes that I meet you.

Preserving the special moments that define your family's journey is what I love most. From the tender beginnings of your newborn's life to the vibrant energy of family celebrations, my goal is to encapsulate these precious times, giving you the chance to experience those cherished memories over and over.



Motherhood is a journey filled with both beauty and challenges. As a dedicated motherhood educator, I'm here to empower you with knowledge and support. Through workshops, resources, and personalized guidance, I strive to help mamas navigate this incredible adventure with confidence and grace.



In a world that constantly pulls us in different directions, I advocate for the beauty of being present. Being a hands-free mama means cherishing the moments without distractions, embracing the simplicity, and relishing the precious bond with your little ones. I'm here to share tips, tricks, and inspiration to help you savor every moment of motherhood.


As someone who navigates the world alongside two neurodiverse children and experiences neurodivergence personally, I am deeply committed to advocating for the recognition and acceptance of neurological diversity. This personal journey has enriched me with invaluable insights into the exquisite diversity of human minds and the critical need for inclusivity. By nurturing an environment of acceptance, we can craft a society that honors and leverages the distinct talents of every individual, allowing us all to thrive in our uniqueness.
