  • Hello there…

    Thanks for stopping by! I started my business in 2007 shortly after the birth of my daughter, it felt like time was slipping away like a thief in the night. There were so many moments I wanted to hold on to. For me, photography isn't about a staged moment with manufactured, on cue smiles. It's about freezing time to capture a feeling in a fleeting moment. I've found that behind my camera I could see life unfolding and it seemed magical. And I Ioved it. My camera is a conduit of my quest for beauty and connections that I want to preserve. Years from now I want to remember how I felt, provoking emotions and memories that have long past... and I think you will too. I pour my heart and soul into each session. Everyone has a unique story to tell, and I would be honored to tell yours. This is my art and passion, I can't imagine doing anything else. I'm inspired by films, music, and fashion. Amy Poehler is my alter ego. Life is weird, unpredictable, adventurous, sentimental, and so much fun! It's quite a ride... let's go somewhere.

    I encourage all potential clients to shop around. Compare photographer portfolios. There are a ton of photographers out there- one for every budget. See what you like... and what you don't. Photography isn't a brand, it's about finding someone that connects with you... a shared vision and style. Anyone can take a picture, especially with technology today. Not everyone can tell a story.

    Here I share personal projects, client work, amongst other things that inspire me. I try to blog at least once a week. So come back soon!

    Technical details: I am a film and digital photographer incorporating video in all of my sessions. I want you to truly have the finest experience and the greatest memories. Film creates a look that cannot be digitally replicated, digital is perfect for immediate gratification, and video tells a story of its own. I attend several workshops throughout the year all across the country with the industry's top photographers from around the world because I truly believe there is always more to learn, especially in this ever-changing industry... this keeps me inspired and humbled, while giving you the very best.

First—my new blog…♥ ♥  Isn’t she pretty?  Still trying to convey my style…it’s a work in progress.  I am appreciating the journey.  (It’s been a long one for sure!)

In case I forgot to mention this.…I do not know how I ever got along without her.  Amazing. Not bragging—a dreadful, awful situation got me this.  Good things can come out of terrible situations.  (Insert hubby love here! xx)

Chase got his orange belt.  What can I say…a mother’s pride runs deep.  Hard work is very, very rewarding—-even to a 6 year old.

I  cannot wait to get my hands on this.  Soon…very soon.  Isn’t the effect amazing?

If I were getting married all over again…this is how I would do it.  Pure awesomeness.

DIYer’s….check this out!  Yes, it’s for a wedding, but it’s perfect for any party!  (I know, I need to stay off MS site…I have booked several weddings so I am all over it.)

Making this yummy dish sometime this week.  No fail–this site rocks.

Happy Monday!


Please excuse our dust…

Blog site is under construction…

Something to whet your palette ’til the *first* official post…


So many new things are in store for 2010—-I cannot wait to start this exciting journey.  First–new BLOG (finally!)…the rest will remain secret…for now.

Happy, happy SUNSHINY (springisalmosthereicantasteitkindof) Saturday.

I’ll be busy customizing this PURDY new blog, newborn session late this morning, hosting a dinner party for 14 (YIKES!–gotta have some fun)!
