I am a wife, a daughter, a sister, an aunt and a mommy! I married my best friend in April 2008 and because of his support I was able to begin this exciting journey 10 years ago! My passion for photography began when I was 12, I took my first photo class and was hooked. I always said I would be a photographer but my parents had other ideas, "you have to get a real job" is what I heard when I went off to college. But when you're passionate about something nothing will stand in your way.
I love love love being a mama! It's the hardest and most rewarding job I've ever done and my 2 boys sure make every moment worth it! They definitely love being my models and I especially love photographing them and documenting their childhood. We love being outdoors and traveling! We strive to give our boys as many amazing experiences as we can, and as a family we love fishing, hiking, camping and just going for walks. In the winter you will find us on the mountain as often as we can. My husband and I snowboarding, and also teaching our oldest how to ski, which he loves to do!
I am a hopeless romantic, and love nothing more than photographing two people in love. I will do just about anything to get "the shot", even if it means getting dirty, wet or going through obstacles for the perfect angle. I love being unique in my photography and in life. I am a goofball and love making people laugh. I am easily excitable and probably use exclamation marks way too much!
I am a computer nerd and am a Mac all the way! Also, I'm a Canon shooter, 5D Mark III Baby!
I am a huge animal lover and have 2 cats and 2 dogs who are part of the family, so when my clients want to include their fur babies in their sessions, I TOTALLY get it!
I am addicted to kissing my sons' adorable faces, eating chocolate, online shopping (especially for baby props), and taking pictures everywhere I go. My birthday is in December, 15 days away from Christmas and I would always get the birthday/Christmas present, and yes I am a little bitter. But now that my son was born the day AFTER my Birthday, my birthday doesn't matter anymore, it's all about him! Poor kiddo, he was supposed to be due in January but must be stubborn like his mom and dad and decided to come 5 weeks early so he could enjoy Christmas with us.
I love cars and am a Ford Mustang girl, I've been very fortunate to have owned 3 so far, 1966, 1998 and 2006. My dream car is a 1968 Mustang Shelby GT500, AKA Elanor.
I am passionate about photography, it's what I live for and I am constantly educating myself and striving for excellence.
I am a proud member of Fearless Photographers, Professional Photographers of America, NewbornPhotography.com and Wedding & Portrait Photographers International.
