About Me

I saw that my life was a vast glowing empty page and I could do anything I wanted.

A few years ago I got a message from my mom telling me how she had come across an old camera bag of my dad’s. I had just begun to fully invest myself in photography so the timing completely floored me. I couldn’t wait to get over there and dig through that treasure! And as I did, there it was— the 50mm lens that I had been eyeing as my very first upgrade. My dad passed in 2006 so it had been waiting there for 10 years, the perfect gift discovered at the most opportune time…

I can't really remember a time of my life when I didn't have some type of camera nearby. I'm sentimental, almost to a fault, but without that quality I wouldn't have realized just how absolutely in love I am with photography. Being able to capture people as they truly are will always be one of my greatest passions.  

Here’s what you can expect: a relaxed and fun experience. Don't be afraid to get mushy and let’s let the kids be kids. You can walk up to me the day of our shoot knowing I’ve seen it all (I’m mom to an insanely energized 8 year old named Jack) and I look forward to the spontaneity certain personalities can bring to the table. I'll do my best to reign it in a bit and deliver a collection of images you will want to hold onto, remembering how you actually felt during this specific time of your life.
