about me

What’s your favorite way to spend a Sunday afternoon? My favorite way to spend a Sunday afternoon is by exploring new adventures with my husband, little girl and our spunky German Shorthair Pointer. Whether it is at the zoo, aquarium, on a hike on a new nature trail or walking along the river. My favorite Sunday afternoon is going to a secret place after church for a picnic with a large grassy area lined with large, lush trees. Just beyond the picnic area is a pond, which is sometimes covered in moss. It’s so beautiful! I just love sitting here with my little family, enjoying the light breeze creating memories that will last a lifetime.

That’s what I’m about, creating memories. I am very passionate about capturing relationships between you and your loved ones. I’m not a very “posy” person because that’s not how you remember you family. You remember the fun, intimate moments you share together and it’s my goal to capture that for you.

I also have a strong passion for volunteering for special organizations. I just love helping families through The Gold Hope Project, The Magic Hour Foundation and Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep. I’m also a member of the Professional Photographer’s Association and the National Association of Professional Child Photographers.
