I'm a lover of espresso based drinks, red wine, puppies, babies, and homemade cookies. (sometimes, I cook the dough). Dressing up can be fun, but I much prefer jeans and a tank top. I love the arts. The smell of oil paint, the blending options of graphite, working up a brand system for small businesses, and creating imagery with one of my cameras. What I love most about photography is being able to create art for people with those they love most as the subject. My photography and design business is the perfect combination of everything I love most.
I began my schooling with a major in graphic design and minor in photography, during that time I photographed my first wedding and found photography to be a great pairing to design. I have worked as a designer and photographer full time for over 11 years and during that time I earned my MFA and launched my photography and design business. I feel truly lucky to work with so many families during some of their most important times and I absolutely love giving people their story in pictures.
