Because Life is art


 All the moments that make up your family

Capturing the big changes, the tiny details and the everyday in between.






 Every moment, some form grows perfect in hand or face;
some tone on the hills or the sea is choicer than the rest;
Some mood of passion or insight or intellectual excitement is
irresistibly real and attractive to us—for that moment only.
How shall we pass most swiftly from point to point,
and be present always at the focus?

For art comes to you proposing frankly to give nothing but the
highest quality to your moments as they pass,
and simply for those moments’ sake.

– From Walter Pater’s Conclusion to The Renaissance


Hello there

My name is Charli. My husband, 2 children and our boxer/bulldog call Phoenix our home. I began photographing couples here in the valley over 10 years ago, and have since narrowed my focus to bellies, babies and families.

Your moments are important to me. Having children myself, I am drawn to the movement, emotions and energy of real life. I see beauty in the everyday, and strive to preserve it in an authentic and artistic way. From baby curls and tiny toes, toddler tickle sessions and toothless big kid smiles- it is my privilege to capture your family from its very beginning and my great joy to preserve your moments as your family grows.
