I have been behind the camera professionally for 7 years and have loved meeting excited seniors, beautiful brides, and loving new moms.

about me

my journey as a photographer


... with my first born, Amelia. I wanted to capture every moment. I took photography in high school, spent some time in the dark room developing film, and when I picked up an older camera, it all started coming back to me. After a few months of sharing images of my sweet baby, friends began asking me to do their pictures and when I wanted to upgrade cameras, the husband urged me to start the business.

It started simply, really. My journey as a photographer began when I fell in love...


I always assumed people wanted formal portraits and that was never going to be style. I guess you could say I was ahead of my time. I ended up becoming a teacher. I love literature, dance, music and photography, sprinkle in some water polo or swimming, and it was basically my life before kids. I am in year nine of leading 17-18 year olds through William Shakespeare and Harper Lee. I just started teaching publications and photography, I get to live my best life: teach, take pictures, love on my family, repeat.

"From women's eyes this doctrine I derive: They sparkle still the right Promethean fire;
They are the books, the arts, the academes, That show, contain, and nourish all the world."
                                —Love's Labor's Lost


From the years of learning the skills on a film camera, to spending too much time in a dark room figuring the perfect exposure, I have loved freezing time. My mother was a photographer, I was in too many "pretty baby" contests, and she loved the art. I never thought this could be a career, not until I was 26 years old.

these are a few of my favorite things

simple living = joyful living
