ARTIST

First and foremost, I am a mother to four beautiful children and have been married to my best friend since 2002. I am a creative soul who is super laid back and easy to work with. My clients often tell me I am the most patient person they’ve ever met. Lastly, I feel like the most blessed gal on the planet to be able to have a life surrounded by people who inspire me everyday!

HOW IT ALL STARTED

I’ve always been an artsy kind of chick. In my 20’s, after going to school for art and design, I still didn’t know what I wanted to be when I grew up. I had a couple kids throughout the years and was just enjoying being a mom but I really yearned to do something creative. Consequently, on my 30th birthday, while enjoying a day out downtown, I discovered “boutique photography.” I looked into the studio at all of the beautiful portraits; families at the beach, kids in nature, and a newborn swaddled looking into its mothers eyes. It took my breath away! I knew as soon as I looked inside that it was in my fate to capture those moments for people. The next day I registered for the Photographic Imaging program at college.

 I’ve been taking classes, workshops, and immersing myself into the art of photography. Photography is an ever changing art & I love the learning curve & continue to grow everyday. Nothing compares to absolutely LOVING what you do for a living.

Along my journey, I have met the most incredible people!  It’s so great to be able to be let into a client’s life to capture their most personal moments. I leave the session feeling like I am part of the family, and I love that. Everyone these days has a fancy camera and takes hundreds of snapshots at a time: therefore the art of photography is sometimes taken for granted. It is my pleasure to show my clients that photography IS an ART.  I am thrilled to be able to give my clients such a wonderful gift to hold on to forever.
