A bit about how I became a photographer:

{or storyteller - if I allow my self to be a bit indulgent}.  For as long as I can remember, I have had a camera in my hands. Upon my graduation from Commercial Art, Photography & Design, I was requested by a coworker to photograph her wedding.  A little reluctantly, I agreed. I convinced my then boyfriend {now husband of almost 20 years} to accompany me.  Many referrals, weddings and sessions later + the rest is how we say ... "history". A profound thank you to all the families I have had an opportunity to work with. You have enriched my life & I feel truly blessed to share your stories through my art.

As a freelance photographer - one of my greatest joys is to capture the wonder + fleeting moments of childhood.

Senior sessions are personalized, fun & relaxed.  I want to make you feel confident & enjoy this special time in your life!


The focus is on you, your story + your relationship. Your engagement session is the best time for us to get to know each other before your wedding day. This is so important to me, that I include the engagement session & images at no charge for all my wedding couples.
