Hello! I'm so glad you're here! I believe it is important for us to get to know each other so we can make some beautiful things happen!


While I had always hoped to journey further into the photography world, I never imagined I would be anyone's trusted family or wedding photographer. But life is crazy and I have been fortunate. 


Nothing beats busting out a box of old photos (glass of wine in hand) and looking back on some of the best, and maybe worst, times of your life.... to feel happy, be sad, giggle with embarrassment, or simply sigh... all those nostalgic feelings that one little photo can produce. My hope is to be able to give others those same feelings, to be able to accurately represent and document a time in your life that you may never get back. I want to create and provide you honest, tangible reminders of your moments that have since passed. While I of course capture images that would be considered posed and formal, I absolutely believe in catching all those beautiful, candid, natural moments in between. 

In addition to photography, I stay busy being a wife, and even busier as a mama to our two littles and our various furbabes. I do work full time in the child welfare system, and have a strong passion for foster care & adoption.  I'm not ready to leave that part of the world yet, and because I work full time, I do limit the number of weddings and sessions I take per year so I can ensure the best full client experience for you! 


If there is ANY time left in my days, you can find me watching movies (or just binge-watching Law & Order: SVU, tbh), at a concert, spending time with our loved ones, traveling, DIYing something, drinking wine (Red Bull on your wedding day!), or attempting one of the 1,000 house projects we want to do! 

I’m happy to chat with you about your needs, vision and wishes, but mostly I would love to help tell your story. Don’t hesitate to get in touch, let's see if we're the right fit for each other!
