This year kicked off with one of my dearest families as they welcomed Baby Grant to this world. Earth side at 3 weeks, this little go-getter arrived more than 6 weeks early and has already stolen the hearts of so many. His two big brothers in particular are his biggest fans and are fiercely protective over him. It’s adorable to watch as they fight over who gets to hold him.

Seeing families grow is one of the greatest perks of my job and I pinch myself everyday for it.

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.
