We take photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone.

As a mom and a photographer, I find every moment so unbearably precious. It can be my once tiny baby, now crawling all over the place and saying her first word, “mama”. Or my now-certified toddler, talking up a storm about dinosaurs and race cars. Or seeing my husband and kids together, on a random Saturday morning, having breakfast as the light gently streams in our kitchen. What’s it going to be like 5 years from now? 10 years? 15?

And while it seems like it’s still so far away, it also goes by in just a blink of an eye. You know what they always say, “The days are long but the years are short.” I want to live in and hold on to all these moments before they flutter away. 

All we’ll ever have are memories — and thankfully, timeless photos of these priceless days, if you’ll have me. Whether you have little ones or not-so-little-ones, I’d like to be there to take all the photos you could ever want of your family, right at this moment in time. 

I’d be honored to do photography for your family at every critical stage but I’d be just as excited to capture your family on a regular day. Whichever you pick, it’s an investment you’ll never regret.

I can't even begin to describe how amazing Lani is. She is able to see a beautiful location that I would not pick as great. But they are! She is also able to capture the personality of a person or family in her pictures. And as far as being easy to work with, Lani has a charming personality, is friendly, positive and upbeat. She was even able to coax a smile out of one of my grumpy children. Thanks Lani for a great experience!


We had such a wonderful photo session with Lani! She was so great with my toddler and was somehow able to get her to sit long enough to get some amazing photos! I am a little self conscious when it comes to pictures of myself but she made me feel confident and so comfortable!

I would recommend her to all and we are so grateful for the captured memories!


Lani was incredible, she took wonderful pictures of this sweet stage of my pregnancy with my second child. Everything was amazing from the start of the process up until delivery. Boy, was I in awe when I saw our photos! She must have special magic powers too as she got great pictures of my first born toddler who was crying through most of the session. She was very patient with us and was fun to be around too. We couldn't have been happier with the final photos and I totally recommend her!
