I am a wife and mother of
four busy children who eats, sleeps, and breathes photography. I love, love, love my kids, my guy, my dogs, and my camera, a great book and a good cup of coffee.
Let's tailor your portrait session to capture the moments that are important to you- the tenderness of your husband with your newborn baby, the silliness between siblings, the joy you feel for each other. Your life... beautifully captured.
A constant admirer of art,
I never considered myself an artist, that is until I found my medium.
I've always had an interest in photography but after the birth of
my first child that interest really
grew into a passion. (somehow that child is 19 now!)
As a mother and photographer I
think what I've always
wanted to capture is a little more than what they look like,
a little bit of their essence to tuck away and save for later.
I hope when I am an old woman, when my perfect children are grown, I can pull out a photo of
one of my kids and feel it,
that "I love you so much it hurts" all over again.
This is what I hope to share with you,
the families I am so
privileged to photograph.
