A little bit of me the girl behind the camera

I am one of the most go go go people I know and my husband will agree hahah I love adventures, pretty much anything that involves the outdoors except maybe jumping out of a plane or bungee jumping, the thought terrifies me just a little. I love hiking, swimming, the ocean and the beach, wine nights, music of all kinds, walking, running, camping and exploring new places and meeting new people. I love my people in my life pretty much more than anything. I have a beautiful little girl and a wonderful husband and also have an amazing group of friends who I call my chosen family. All these people in my life help make my world an amazing place. I am beyond BLESSED in this life.

"Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second"


My camera and I are quite close too, I love it and love to document things that I see. I love to capture images that make me feel and take me to feelings of warmth and happiness and joy and sometimes sadness. Photos tell a big part of our story. I have had passion for photography since before I can remember. My Dad always had a camera and was taking photos all growing up and it was annoying then but I secretly loved it and would look at the images and just study them.

I finally got into a class in college in my twenty something years and learned about film and learned to develop then it was onto digital stuff. I shot and played mostly for fun then after a few years decided I really loved shooting families and their littles so I started my business. I have been in solid business for about 6 ish years and couldn’t be happier to have the job I dreamed of. I love what I do.
