From as early as I can remember I loved art, dance, dresses and all things girl. I believe in power of love and children remind me that miracles happen every day.
I am a mama to the sweetest little girl with the biggest heart I know. She keeps me constantly inspired – in work and in life. My husband is one of the hardest working, selfless people I know. Immeasurably grateful for his support in all my crazy ideas I throw at him…daily, ha!
While I cannot tell you I grew up knowing what I wanted to be professionally, I can say that because of the amazing example my parents set, I always knew what I ultimately wanted for my life – find a loving man with same values to share this crazy-fun life with, be the best mama I could to some little loves and make as many memories as time allows.
As a self-taught photographer I first started shooting about eight years ago and primarily focused on weddings until Summer 2015. The first year of our little girl’s life, she logged many hours in the car and six airplane trips as she traveled near and far with me allowing me to document my last year full of beautiful weddings.
My goodness do I have those days where I sure miss the wedding world and all those wonderful relationships it allowed me to cultivate but I knew I needed to follow the shift in my heart. I am happy to be focused on lifestyle and family photography, allowing me to stay passionate in work and more present at home.
Documenting people’s love stories is such an honor. These love stories are what inspire me – whether it is the love between a couple married for 60 years, between sisters who are best friends or the love between a mother, father and child. The love shared between people is unique and intimate, just as I strive to make the moments I capture. My hope is these photographs tell your story for years to come by leaving a beautiful legacy.
