Photography has taught me that the world is always changing; that the people we love may not be here tomorrow; that a sunset never sets the same way; relationships change; that wrinkles have shown how we have lived, that people’s emotions are deeper than a smile; that today will not look like tomorrow. I have dedicated my life to being a daughter, sister, mother, friend, teacher, coach, girl scout leader and volunteer and I have loved every moment. Now, I take on a new role as an Entrepreneur and I have a new purpose in preserving life moments through photography.

There are many things I love in this life, like my family, my dogs, and a good hard belly laugh. A beautiful love story. Selfless acts of kindness. A tight hug. A beautiful sunset, but what really brings me joy is making people feel, own and celebrate who they are! My love of photography began back in college and my camera has been my side-kick ever since. I have photographed many genres over the years, but I have come to find that portrait photography is where my heart is. Helping people capture a moment in time to relive year after year.
