a little about me and my style....

Photography is in my heart and is as much a part of me as my arms and legs.  The best part of my job is hands down the people that I meet along the way.  Getting to know someone through my lens is so very rewarding and fun. I feel quite lucky to have landed this cool gig I call a job.  It is really so much more for me.  

my style

Simple.  No perfection required. I strive to capture the real-ness of each person.  I need you to be yourself and nothing more.

I will spend time capturing details about your kids. big gorgeous eyes, wispy hair, long eyelashes, silly faces, pouty know,that kind of stuff.  The important stuff that you love so much about them.  The things you will always remember.  

I will also spend time capturing the little details I see.  a found ladybug in the palm of a hand, a tin of crayons, a loved 'blankie', a little hand holding a flower, those simple things that made the session special.  These are sometimes my favorite images to photograph.

I keep things as natural as possile, without posing anyone.  I will simply direct you a bit and let life unfold while I snap away.  

Call me, book a session...lets have some fun!

A boy and his dog….

                I had the best time with this duo. BIG and his boy were good buddies. Capturing this sort of love between a boy and his dog warms my heart.  Do you have a special furry friend in your life you’d like photographed?  I am offering snapshot sessions […]

Dunbar’s people….

I spent a fabulous morning with Dunbar and his people recently in Denver.  The weather was fabulous on their gorgeous front porch.  I could have stayed all day if it weren’t for that flight back home.
