The Story of an Artist . . .

Chaser of light, world traveler, memory keeper, storyteller, & dreamer

Welcome!!!!! I'm so glad you stopped by. First, I'm an Air Force wife (my husband of 22 years just retired a few years ago), army brat, and navy granddaughter, mom of three humans and eleven fur babies (yes you heard that right lol!!!! You can check them all out below!), photographer, animal lover, Facebook and coffee addict. When I'm home I'm usually in yoga pants and a hoodie, sporting a messy bun or my sunglasses- usually on top of my head, frequently posing as a headband in disguise LOL, and I probably have a book in my hand. I love Europe, Germany is my original home, I love all things vintage, rustic, and worn. Fall is my favorite season. The camera goes where I go.

I've traveled some...and want to travel more. Coronado, California is my favorite place on the planet; the ocean is where my heart is. Boston is equally a favorite; for some reason I feel at home there when I visit.

I was a family child care provider licensed through the Air Force for 11 years, before I decided to transition to my photography business full time. So, I've been working with babies for a really long time! I shoot mainly in natural light, focusing on newborn portraiture, anything that captures life as we know it within families, and sometimes weddings.

I think one of the most important things I try to capture is the connection between people. I believe photography is all about relationships. I like to think those in between shots are usually the best ones; the ones when no one is paying attention. That's when the camera captures the connections the very best, when we're not even looking! Sometimes we don't realize how important those type of moments are to us until we see them in an image. It's those moments that are my favorite! It's those moments that let me tell your story in pictures, and who doesn't love a good story?
