Photography was just a hobby that turned into something so much more important. I got my first camera as a teen, dabbled with photography in college & snapped with increasing intensity with the birth of each child but stayed a hobby until March 15th, 2008 when I realized just how precious a photograph can truly be and how things can change in the blink of an eye. This business was born of the fire of heartache, knowing that there weren't enough pictures of a man who made me, loved me & molded me into the person that I am today, my Daddy. From the ashes of that burning heartbreak emerged this driving passion for photography. I may not have my Daddy with me on earth anymore but I have those photos that keep his sarcastic smile alive in my heart & mind. I wouldn't trade those pictures for all the money in the world. That is what photography is all about, freezing moments that you never want to forget. Let me capture those for you...



In the whirlwind of chaos & disorganization that is my everyday life as a wife & mother of four children with one cat & two dogs... somewhere in all the madness, I get to make my own kind of magic. I'm just your average everyday mom who gets play photographer from time to time. I'm admittedly not an expert photographer but I'm a pretty good student of human nature with a love of people & digital art. Clients who book with me can expect a very casual experience. I dress in comfy clothes with likely no make-up & hair pulled back out of my face so I can focus on what really matters, my clients. I may look a hot mess but it's what I see that's important & I see beauty in the simplest of thing... contagious laughter, quirky smiles, pitiful pouts & those completely spontaneous moments that just cannot be staged. Join me in my journey to evolve as an artist & do my best to capture those extraordinary moments hiding in plain site.
