capturing today's beautifully imperfect moments

Age I Got my 1st Camera

For me, faith comes first with family a close 2nd. Together, they are the main inspiration in this journey, and I absolutely love connecting with others who share the same outlook on life. Most days you can find me enjoying an iced tea, singing along with the radio and laughing at the crazy things my kids say. I love encouraging new moms and think sunsets are the perfect chance to take a moment to focus on the "now". It's priceless.

Specializing in on-location photography, your session can be at a favorite park, the beach or even your home. I love showcasing 'everyday' moments for the masterpieces that they are. 

During our time together, you can be mom, and let me get the authentic reactions. And, since I know how busy life gets, every package includes physical prints as well as digital files. No more USBs sitting in a desk drawer waiting to be printed. Instead, beautiful keepsakes from your session ensure that you'll remember the details that fade with time.

You were created for this moment. 

It's easy to feel overwhelmed by the demands of parenting, but good news! You were created for this moment. One of my favorite quotes is "You were created to do great and meaningful things," by fellow photographer Ben Hartley. There is so much truth in that statement. You are the perfect Mama for your kids, afterall He gave them to you. And, His plan is perfect. 


We are doing the
best we can.

I want to encourage each mama I meet to be the best she can. Taking a moment to let another mom know that she's doing a good job is priceless when so many people are quick to point out what we could do better. So next time you see her walking through Target, keeping the kids occupied, so she can browse for a few minutes, give her a high-five and tell her she's amazing!


Sunsets are a promise.

Yes, they are beautiful, but they are so much more. Each time I take a moment to watch a sunset, I am struck by the promise of what will be. Each sunset is a time to reflect on the day and decide how I will make tomorrow better. 



Are you ready to share your heart with me?
