Most days you can find me chasing my littles like a rampaging t-rex between design projects or loading my camera bag for my next photo-adventure. I am a mother to my three kiddos, a prolific reader of science fiction and urban fantasy, an artist, a storyteller, and a woman who is always looking for the next opportunity to do something challenging and fun. I’m mostly known for two things: telling hilariously dramatic stories about my family life and whipping out a camera at any and every opportunity.
My photography style is all natural and candid, which basically means I excel at capturing those special moments when you are being you. Have you ever wished you could be two people so that you’d have a print of what was happening to you right in that moment? I know I have. Lifestyle photography, or documentary photography as it is also known, is all about the stories that make up who we are. Documenting a family’s life together is one of my favorite projects. Whether I am sharing funny stories with you to get authentic reactions or melting into the background so you can just be yourself, those are the projects and moments that I love the most.
Preserving memories through photography is incredibly important to me both as a person who grew up with regrettably few childhood photos of herself and as an artist who loves to play with light and shadow. Whether I am creating a collection of portraits or helping you visually craft your story through documentary, you can trust that I will work hard to combine your vision with my artistry to create a keepsake you will want hanging on your walls and passed down through your family.
I love using my skills to give back to the community, and am currently partnered with Rebecca’s Gift to do just that. Rebecca’s Gift is a 501(3)c non-profit dedicated to providing healing vacations to families after the loss of a child. Operating as a volunteer graphic design expert I help them create their marketing materials to reach families and donors alike. Rebecca is close to my heart as she was a playmate to my children and her parents are close friends. Helping this organization started in her memory to succeed is my way of honoring all that she was to my family.
