My appreciation for photography first began when I was a young girl. However, I wasn’t the one that was in love with photography; it was my dad. I guess you could say I was his little muse because he just loved taking pictures of me, or maybe because I was the only willing subject! Even as a child, I understood how lucky I was to have such beautiful memories of my childhood captured on film. I always knew that I would take up photography “one day” to give the same gift to my own children that my dad gave to me. I never imagined that what I thought would be my hobby would one day become my career.

What truly inspired me to pursue my love of photography was when I was searching for a photographer for my own wedding. I knew what I wanted in a photographer – someone who would capture all the little details I spent so much time working on, all the special moments that would unfold, and all the joy my husband and I would feel on our special day.

What I looked for years ago in my own photographer is what I always strive to be. Whether I’m capturing your wedding or the beautiful smiles of your children, I’m always fully aware of how important these memories are to you. This is why I give my all, each and every time I shoot.  I hope I’m given the chance to capture your own story the best way I know how…with pictures. I look forward to working with you!
