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.

These images just SCREAM childhood summer fun!  I framed that first image so I can enjoy it everyday.  That is my sister in law, my 3 kids, my two nephews, and some little girl I do not know (on far left).  Even though I don’t know her, that sweet little girl adds so much to...

iphone + shake it photo app

This is one of my favorite photos taken with my phone.  I used the shake it photo app to turn it into a polaroid . . . love that the app even makes the sound of a polaroid while “developing”.  I took more pictures with my phone last year than usual.  It was so handy...

bowling in black and white

With the exception of the last shot, all of these were taken as black and white images in camera.  A little contrast added in editing and they were done.  It was my niece’s first time bowling.  That’s her in the first shot right before her first bowl.  It was fun to watch her.  She’s a...

less than one month ago . . .

it was warm!  and I told my kids to go run through grandma’s wash so I could take their pictures. It is now bitterly cold . . . it isn’t usually this cold until January or February.  I needed some warm images today.  =)

Happy Thanksgiving!  Today we were cooking and cleaning and getting ready for tomorrow’s feast.  I’m looking forward to the sweet potatoes!  I have so many things to be thankful for . . . those 3 girls in the picture, my husband and son, my extended family, a roof over our heads that is so graciously...

going back to 2007

Seeing my youngest on the right cracks me up!  And look at my adorable little boy.  They are growing so fast. This made me smile.  Maybe it will make you smile too.

this is how I want my kids to remember me . . .

It was our turn for family photographs!  I honestly cannot thank my girl Melissa enough for the images she takes of us.  We have swapped family photo sessions for the last 3 years.  And this year contains some of my new favorites. I’m usually not a fan of pictures of myself, but this one gets...

back to the beach

If only I were literally back at the beach.  But no.  The title simply refers to the fact that I am finally getting these images ready to print.  This is a mega large post!  But I absolutely love taking pictures of my kids, so I wanted to share them all.  My new house will be...

back from the beach

The beach is my FAVORITE place to take pictures.  Oh how I love it.  It is absolutely beautiful and always puts me in awe of our Creator.  Here is just a little glimpse of the oodles of images I took.  I’ll share more later, but it is back to business as usual now that vacation...
