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!

cottage update

I’ve taken to calling the house a cottage since that is really what we’re trying to build.  I’m sure these pictures look quite confusing.  My uncle calls it a fort because he cannot figure out what is going on with this cement wall sticking up out of the ground.  That makes me laugh.  Apparently the...

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...

it’s been awhile . . .

The internet and I broke up.  We’re trying to work things out, but we’re not spending as much time together as we used to. The fact of the matter is that I have been struggling with dry eyes.  I always have a bit of a problem, but for about 2 1/2 weeks it was SEVERE....
