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!

from the sidelines…..

I love a good experiment.  I have sown seeds both indoors and out and I am waiting to see which do best…..  I used recycled containers (with exception of those cute little pots) to sow my indoor seeds and snapped a few shots of the amazing things seeds do when you put them in some […]

come and grow with me….

Gardening is something I have always loved doing.  Being outside in the fresh air, digging in the dirt, planting things that will either feed my family or make my yard pretty is total satisfaction for me.  However, a full garden was something I had never done.  I’ve grown lots of herbs over the years with the […]

my three sons……

I don’t often do studio style work, but this project was a lot of fun!  My three sons were good sports to appease my requests for cuteness.
