WELCOME!

about

I fell in love with photography many years ago. My parents were always avid photographers, and I developed a habit of capturing pictures everywhere the same way they did. I can remember hikes where all four of us would pass our film camera around, taking pictures of different leaves, trees, and insects and of course each other! (Side note: my sister and I were typically in matching outfits during these photos.) In preschool, I begged my parents to let me take a camera to the last day of school; I arranged all of my classmates outside by the playground and took my first group shot. I always have had a camera with me, everywhere I went, and then in 2008, I got my first DSLR and everything changed. I started to learn to use my camera not just pressing the shutter button, but adjusting the shutter speed, the aperture, and the white balance. I created my own style that I love, and I continually strive to photograph in a genuine and honest way.

In addition to both bachelors and masters degrees, I have over 185 hours of formal college training in digital photography. I utilize the top of the line photography equipment from Sony and I practice my art intensely. I love photography, and I am a perfectionist at all that I do. On top of that, I am friendly, funny, and outgoing, and I absolutely love meeting new people! My goal is to capture you looking your most natural and at your happiest. I strive for my photographs to best represent the subjects and showcase who they are as individuals; I aim to capture the emotions and energy that are reflected in those moments. And the best part? I LOVE being there to photograph those moments and emotions!

Want to know more about me? I love a lot! I adore the people who surround me in my life, and I am so fortunate for the great family, friends, and pets that I have. I am extremely generous, giving, and caring, and I get great joy out of making others happy whether that is through creating great photos for a couple to keep for a lifetime, fostering a homeless cat, or saying hello to a stranger. Aside from my personal beliefs and values, I am a fun-loving, energetic, and enthusiastic person. I find four leaf clovers all the time, I have been a vegetarian for many years, I {heart} the color pink (oh so much), I love painting my nails fun and bright colors, and I have been with the love of my life since I was 18 (and we just got married in 2014!)! We have three awesome dogs and a few cats (all from shelters or rescues!) who you will sometimes see featured on the blog (I try to restrain myself, but it is tough!).
