Your Bio

Welcome to my website! I am the full time mom to three amazing children ages 2 months, 3, and 13 years. I have been in the photography business for 5 years full time. I have always dabbled in photography and love this art form. At this time I take on all types of sessions expanding my knowledge and learning with each new challenge. My heart belongs to the newborns and children however I enjoy each session.

More than the photography, I adore getting to know my families and seeing their children grow. My heart is warmed by making others happy with cherished memories and lots of fun. I am rarely serious. During sessions we do a lot of goofing around and laughing. I feel this makes for better photos. I have been called the baby whisperer and families always tell me that they have been through many photographers but their children never quite warm up to them. I have never had this problem. I make it fun and relaxed. The little ones are my best buds by the end of the session.

Before photography, I attended nursing school and spent several years as a preschool teacher. I have always loved children. In my spare time I like to explore abandoned and forgotten places. There's something so mystical about what's left behind when people leave places to decay. Seeing nature reclaim places is awe inspiring. I really hope you enjoy my photos and if we haven't met, I hope you give me a call. Photography should never be a hassle. I make it a fun day filled with playing, running, laughing and sometimes tears of happiness. Love to all of you.
