First and foremost, I love what I do! I’m blessed to be asked to photograph the moments that mean the most to you. For me, the most important part of your session is capturing moments that make your heart swell and make you want to share your photos with everyone the minute you see them.
My style can be described as natural, honest and heartwarming – images that capture you and your family’s uniqueness. Connection is huge for me I want to get to know you so I can can capture the real you. I don’t believe in structured posing and find that the best photos are those that are candid and show the natural expressions of each individual.
I am wife, mother of 2 little girls Abby and Caroline, sister, lover of God, worker bee, daydreamer, addicted to photography, dedicated to my clients. I love sunlight and the ocean and the morning when I am not working I adore my alone time and snuggling with my sweet girls.
I once read this article and it said watch what your children play because that is what they love to do. And I thought, oh my goodness! I used to play portrait studio with my sisters. I would set up the piano bench and put a blanket on it and then out would come the polaroid. I never put that together until my adult years. I studied Marketing in college but wrote my thesis on opening a Portrait Studio. I worked through my college years at Sears Portraits Studio and we would photograph screaming children all day long….I still couldn’t get enough. The I started my marketing career….quit at 25 and went to photography school because I was obsessed. Graduated from Hallmark Institute of Photography in 2001 with the Best Portrait Portfolio and was the BEST year of my life because I was with like minded people and we all loved it!
