Since you’re here, let me tell you a little about myself.
I’m sure we have a few things in common. I’m a mother, a wife, a sister and a friend. I am a storyteller, a creative, and an entrepreneur. I am a light chaser and simply put, I am my own authentic human being. I dearly love to laugh. I find I have a deep appreciation for smiles, books, coffee, rainy days, the colors of autumn, abandoned places and anything else that has a soul.
I am a creative at heart and approach my work with a fine art aesthetic. I work diligently to craft images that inspire the audience while presenting the subject in an authentic manner.
I specialize in three select areas, Lifestyle, Branding and Fine Art, although the latter is not a service I extend to clients. It’s my own private passion where I can explore and craft my own journey . This allows me to grow as an artist, while also ensuring that I am wholeheartedly focused on my clients desires and needs when I am with them. Lifestyle photography fills my soul with joy as I get to capture the love of those in front of my camera and make time stand still in images that will represent their fondest memories. My Branding services are focused on smaller businesses, allowing my clients to spend a little less time worrying about their online presence and more time focusing on the business they love and have built for themselves. As someone who has been an entrepreneur for over 10 years, I know firsthand how difficult it can be to balance all aspects of a life & business and it is truly my pleasure to support those who are striving to fulfill their own dreams and aspirations.
