My first camera was a Kodak Brownie that I was given when I was about 6. I instantly fell in love with photography and took pictures as often as I could. I was inspired in High School to use photography as an expression of my artistic side and found myself lost in the darkroom as often as possible. In college, this continued, and my love of photography helped me to earn my bachelor’s degree in Fine Art Photography & Visual Design–and in Psychology–I know, what a combination! Later, I received my Master’s Degree in Business.
After a break from photography for many years, the birth of my first daughter prompted me to pick up my camera again. At the encouragement of many friends, and my family, I opened a studio. I feel my creative spirits soar when I capture that special moment. I love being behind the camera, as well as working with photographic images to create art that inspires.
I accept new clients on a limited basis. I offer studio sessions, on-location shooting, and limited event coverage. I typically book 4 or more weeks in advance, but will try to accommodate you, if at all possible. Please plan ahead for the arrival of your newborn—these sessions book very quickly!
