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 lips...you 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!

The light…..

Finding the perfect lighting conditions can be challenging at times.  But, it is what keeps things exciting for me when I am photographing.  I positioned this sweet newborn and her mommy in front of the window and snapped away while they snuggled and watched each other.  I love these simple and honest images that the moody […]

The new pup……

On our late summer trip to New Mexico we came across this adorable pup wandering the parking area of a busy gas station.  No one seemed to know where she came from and so, we scooped her up and decided to bring her along with us on our drive to visit my parents in the […]
