I believe that photography tells a story about who we are, and the art of that should capture the most raw and authentic seasons of your life. As an artist, I am passionate about capturing your unique family and creating images with real emotion and soul. One of my greatest honors is chasing light with families, photographing glowing baby bumps, making children laugh, and snuggling squishy babies. Each time I work with a family, they leave a piece of themselves on my heart. Here is a piece of my heart and my story: I am a wife, mother of three and artist. I'm a little bit of a mess sometimes, but I am a loyal friend who feels things deeply. I love coffee, red wine, and Matchbox 20; stunning sunsets, reading and drawing. On a good day, you will find me in last night's pajama top, yoga pants with my hair in a bun and small children hanging off me (no, they are not triplets). My closest friends know that my ideal night is a house full of people I love, music, wine and a home-cooked meal. Yes, I'm obsessed with pumpkin spice lattes and yes I have a lip syncing video problem (as in I make too many of them on social media). You're welcome. Now for the serious stuff...from a young age, I can remember wanting to be an artist, and as I grew up, I found myself in positions where I was teaching or nurturing children around me. When I graduated college, I found a job teaching art. I never imagined a job could be so fun and fulfilling at the same time. I adored my students and taught for several years before we decided to start a family. Becoming parents forced me to examine the most raw and vulnerable parts of my heart. We faced loss, infertility, IVF and adoption. My mama heart ached, but through all the struggles we were blessed. Three children in two years: Our house is full and so are our hearts. My work is deeply personal, and family sessions are close to my heart. I know that when you are looking for a photographer you are trusting another person with your memories. As a mother myself, telling your authentic story is profoundly important to me. My passion for my art and pursuing the heart of your family come together with my photography. So let's tell a story together!
