I have a Bachelors in Fine Arts and fell in love with photography when I received my first camera over 20 years ago. This passion to capture life’s moments began before learning cursive in Elementary school. The introduction of elemental lessons in photography with film and early education have given me the necessary experience and patience to encapsulate a memory that is looked back on over the years with family styled portraiture. Everyone needs time to warm up to the camera to capture their natural personality; sessions are scheduled for an hour of fun and relaxation. I adore photographing children in their environments to allow them to be comfortable and expressive outside the “Say Cheese” tabletop studio. Sometimes the best photos are the ones not looking at the camera, but the ones that shows how silly, sad, excited, or mad they might be, to tell a story about that moment in time. As a photographer, mother and wife, I have found patience, education, experience and the ability to find the moment is the best way to capture the memories that are cherished for a lifetime.
