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

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 in love with photography I am. To break it all down, I just want those around me to enjoy themselves. My main goal is not to get that super-posed traditional shot, my true inspiration comes from capturing YOU. My favorite photos of my family have always been the candid moments, the real emotions, the truth. I believe with my whole heart that those are the memories we wish to hold onto. 

 So, that’s what I offer you. 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.
