My Name is

I've never had much luck in love.... but I have a lot of luck photographing it!

The spark began when I was only about 10. A young man snapped an image as I was running around like hyper kids do - when he showed me the image, I was blown away with how much more real looking than real life it looked to me!
I began towards this beautiful future
 when I bought my first DSLR with money made during Army medical training in San Antonio, TX. I captured a genuine moment of one of my Battle Buddies... a truly deep belly laugh. When the image popped up on the screen, I knew that I had to capture moments like this for people to look back on to remember sometimes all-too-easily forgettable moments of joy & love & celebrating with their loved ones.


"Nature is my muse

Love is my inspiration"

Life has brought many joys and many struggles, many homes and many friends. I've had the honor to be a single parent to two of the most silly, intelligent, creative and LOVING children on the planet (I may be biased.......... but come on, LOOK AT HOW CUTE THEY ARE!) who inspire me to continue showing them to follow their passions and hone their skills so they can support their life with the things they love.


Now, my perfect days start with a stunning desert sunrise, editing images from a recent Wedding at a cafe in Sedona... reliving the moments of laughter, love & fireworks of photographic passion that each session gives me. Trying new foods, hiking, and enjoying an afternoon Mimosa. My favorite evenings end in snuggles with my boys, a full moon bonfire, and deep conversation with my best friends.

Life is better with friends, smoke & wine

In 2009 while in the Army, I finally had the money to buy a DSLR camera.

Now, I'm obsessed.

For those considering me for your wedding day or portraits - THANK YOU! Becoming your trusted photographer and friend brings me the utmost joy!
