Welcome to my Blog!

Stress free, fun, happy, colorful, casual are all things that describe a session with me.

I have always loved art and enjoyed creating things. It makes me happy . . . puts a skip in my step. My interest in photography started in high school, but really expanded once I had children. I now have 3 little ones of my own (that's us on the left), and I feel compelled to document their unique characteristics and personality traits with the camera. I like to capture moments, looks, glances, smiles, belly laughs, the beauty within them . . . everything about them I want to remember. My goal is to capture real moments and interactions. It is no different when I am at a session. I want to capture all of these things for you too.

People have described me as creative and passionate. I put both of these qualities to work in every session. I want you to love your images as much as I do. 

I also enjoy getting to know people and listening to their stories. That's why photography is such a good match for me. It brings my creative passion together with my love for people. I look forward to meeting you and hearing your story as I document your unique characteristics with my camera.

capturing emotion

  My good friend Melissa is hosting a 12 Weeks of Summer photo challenge.  This week is “capturing emotion”.  Even though I took these several weeks ago, I couldn’t resist posting them for the challenge.  I love capturing my kids on rides like this.  So much emotion, so many colors, so much FUN!

vintage apron

It’s about time I got my camera out!  I’ve missed it.  I take a break each winter because of the weather, and spring finally looks like it is here to stay. My girl innocently put this apron on today and I rushed her outside to take some photos.  It was good to get back into...
