Like most photographers I have loved photography since I was a child. I think it was my mother that gave me the passion for the art. Since graduating from ISU, I have continued to take photography courses from a variety of institutions and instructors throughout the years. I am always looking to learn and grow more.

I have been photographing weddings and children for over a decade and love every second of it. From the “big picture” to every minute detail…I love the shadows as much as the light…the black, the white, every shade of grey in between, brilliant hues, screaming color. Soft, shy, or strong…confidence, elation, or love…something, anything, everything….sunlight, moonlight, nothing but a flashlight.

I love having the opportunity to document the important moments and times in people's lives. I am forever grateful for the opportunity to grow with my clients--from senior photos to engagement photos. From the wedding day to the maternity session. From the newborn portraits to the family photos, each year capturing the moments in time so that the memories will never truly fade away.
