Sunset at Crab Cove

March 16, 2017


It’s true. I gotta thing for beaches. It’s kinda a prerequisite for living on an island. Luckily, this family loves them as much as I do. It’s their happy place second to Argentina and I’m grateful to capture it for them. Why, I can’t think of a lovelier family to spend a magical, mud-filled sunset. Now if I can only convince them to take me to Argentina…

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.
