Happy New Year

January 3, 2017


Happy New Year! We’ve made it out of the dark, entangled woods of yesteryear. Professionally speaking, it’s been a good one. I’ve challenged myself in many ways, yet I stayed true to capturing the sincere, honest moments. I am so very grateful for every beautiful soul that stood in front of my lens and who have entrusted me to tell their story. I wouldn’t be the photographer that I am today without them.

Photography has reminded me of the goodness in people and for 2017 I’m going to change things up a bit by digging a little deeper and going the extra mile to honor the love that connects us. Although I’ve had the pleasure of documenting other families, I’ve done a not-so-good job of capturing my own or of myself. So let me start by sharing some of my special moments from last year and the most recent one of all of us sick in bed on New Year’s Day. Boy, do we look phlegm-tastic!

Here’s to always pursuing and nurturing what’s in our hearts! Happy New Year! May the force be with us.


Gather strength from the beauty of your chaos.

I’ve always been fascinated by people; my B.S. is in anthropology. I appointed myself the family documentarian, taking photos of our travels and milestones. I soon realized how much I love visual storytelling. I picked up my first serious camera when my daughter was born, knowing those early years with her were precious and ever-changing. Around that time, a photographer friend’s encouragement led me to pursue photography professionally. Now many years and some very proud accomplishments into this career, my passion for it only grows.

I can’t imagine doing anything else.
