Favorite Moments of 2017

February 18, 2018


I am so moved by the honesty and heart of the families that have come my way. Words seem to fall short for how grateful I am to not just be doing what I love, but to be capturing love as well. We’ve laughed, we’ve cried, we even got pooped on. Here are my few favorites from last year. Enjoy…with audio xo

About Me

Real life is more than pretty pictures.
The beauty is in the journey, and it's absolutely
worth documenting all of it. 

I’m captivated by people and always have been; my B.S. is in anthropology. Early on, I appointed myself the family documentarian, carefully recording milestones and travels and learning along the way how much I love visual storytelling. I picked up my first professional camera when my daughter was born, knowing those early years with her were precious and full of changes. A photographer friend’s encouragement soon led me to make photography my career. Today, after many years and proud accomplishments, my passion for it only grows.

I can’t imagine doing anything else.
