If I am not in the studio snuggling babies, you may find me at HomeGoods finding the perfect throw pillows for my home or having impromptu ice cream dates (I’ll be the one with the mint chocolate chip!) with our three little ones. Capturing moments that last for my clients has taught me to seek them out in my own life, while motherhood has taught me to slow down and enjoy them.
Growing up in a large family, I learned to love wholeheartedly and that has flowed over into everything I do. From receiving my degree in elementary education to my master’s in teaching from Virginia Commonwealth University, I have shaped my career around helping young families. Photography is an extension of this mission, allowing me to step into the homes of families, preserving the love they share, because I believe in having more than just memories. I believe in tangible reminders that let you live in the moment time and time again.
That’s a lot of babies you guys!
I pop their glazed donut holes like they’re candy.
Sweetest sound I have ever heard...except at 2am.
Told ya I was a professional baby snuggler!
24 seasons in and still believe in love...
Unless it’s photos on your walls. I believe the emotional equity of photography can’t be measured in dollars but can be measured by the number of family photos in your home.
what free time? I have spent roughly 30% of my motherhood journey looking for missing baby socks!
“That’s what she said” wit can go head to head with Michael Scott’s.
but s’mores and a firepit are about as outdoorsy as I get, although I won’t turn down a day at the beach!
