Allow Us to
Welcome to Whimsical Exposures! We are sisters who spent most of our childhood dressing up, crafting elaborate scenes, and creating unusual alter egos. We never really outgrew our love for imaginative play! That's why our mission is to merge the worlds of reality and imagination to offer photography with flair. When you look back at your photos, you will see personality, creativity, and the story of YOU.
Fun fact: we prefer to be behind the camera!
Our Whimsical Super Powers...
Co-Founder & Child Whisperer
Like many of our clients, I’m a busy mom who is constantly juggling multiple priorities. I understand it's hard to sit back and enjoy the small moments in life with a never-ending to do list. I’ve learned how to approach motherhood with humor and let things get messy sometimes! Messy moments can be the most memorable. Some of my favorite images of my kids are them being them: rolling around in mud piles, chasing each other around the yard, jumping in puddles; the list goes on...
We will likely avoid mud piles with your family, but I want to capture the special moments and activities that make your family feel most like you! It may take time for your kids to feel relaxed around a new person, but I have lots of tricks up my sleeve!
I work to build a trusting and comfortable rapport with children. I want them to have fun during the shoot and be excited about the possibility of coming back! We get silly, we play, we sing, we run, or we just do our own thing and I become a fly on the wall. It all depends on your child.
Having three rambunctious girls of my own, I know it’s unrealistic to expect little ones to follow instructions. I expect plans to go out the window! That’s part of the fun and why your photos will be unique.
I want to take the pressure off you, so sit back, relax, and let me do the heavy lifting! It’s the most enjoyable part of my job!

Co-Founder & Visual Storyteller
I'm a people person, through and through! I love meeting new people and I'm a captive audience to their stories.
Creating an image isn't just about making something look polished and pretty, it's about telling a story. Through editing, I aim to deliver a finished product that captures the essence of the subject(s).
I enjoy taking pictures, but editing has always been my favorite part of photography. There are limitless possibilities. I'm a meticulous editor and working in data visualization has taught me the fundamentals of visual storytelling.
In addition to polishing up a photo, I'm also enhancing subtle character traits that I see. Perhaps it's a look of mischief or a gentle kindness in the eyes. I pay careful attention to these attributes to make sure they are conveyed in the image. I also create custom composite backgrounds that help make imaginary worlds come to life.
It's a privilege getting to know our clients, near and far, and each story sticks with me long after the editing process is complete! In addition to telling YOUR story, I tell OUR story by designing our website and social media pages.
