Other than that, I'm on this earth for genuine interaction. Connecting with people who "get me" is one of my favorite experiences. I like meeting new people, learning from new perspectives and new ways of life.

My work isn't about the posy posy, but the "laughing at your man because he just farted" laugh or chasing after your kiddo as they run away laughing being captured and remembered every time you look back at your photos instead.

My goal is for you to have these photos during any moment of life. To have a picture of your lives to look back on and cherish forever. We are constantly rushing around as humans, that we forget to slow down. To remember the day to day moments just like we do with birthdays, celebrations, and holidays. Ya get me?

I FOCUS ON

the simple details

OF LIFE

I focus on the simple details of life. Whether that is an in-home family session or an adventurous day with your love. 
While I love capturing the candid moments of your lives, capturing it the way it's lived, I also have a passion for creating editorial work. I started out taking people's photos by doing styled shoots, and it's really cool to see that come full circle.

I live simply. If my loves are happy, I'm happy. I cherish the little things, quality time, and enjoying the moments in life that happen so candidly I can't even capture with an iPhone (which also brings me sadness because I want to quite literally document everything that happens in life). Give me all the sappy emotional movies. I am a sucker for the love. Yoga is my go to stress reliever, and Chocolate chip cookie dough is the way to my heart, but so is a nice hearty salad... I like a balanced life. I'm an enneagram 4 and Pisces (basically I'm always living through day dreams and finding meaning through everything in life, and I'm not joking). I still can't decide which of the five love languages I resonate with most, but I think the thought and intention behind any of them is what matters to me.

Other than that, I'm on this earth for genuine interaction. I like meeting new people, learning from new perspectives and new ways of life. My work isn't about the pose-y pose-y, but the "laughing at your man because he just farted" laugh or chasing after your kiddo as they run away laughing, and the slow moments that life naturally brings. 

My goal is for you to have a moment to slow down and really soak up the life that you live. To have these photos during any moment of life. We are constantly rushing around as humans, that we forget to slow down. To remember the day to day moments just like we do with birthdays, celebrations, and holidays. Ya get me?

This is my family

My husband and our pup. Life is better with them.  My husband brings out my goofy side. His fun personality will always be there to cheer me up, because, let's be honest, we all get a little overwhelmed from time to time.

We had a long distance relationship for 3 years (military life) and now finally get to live together and begin our own little traditions. We are homebodies without a doubt, but we love a good adventure just as much. Theon loves playing fetch (he could play for hours and still want more) and going for walks through our village.

As I experience more of this life, my style and perspective continues to broaden. I put everything I learn in life into my work, and try my best to make every session memorable and unique.

What makes us, us.

Fun Facts

My husband and I met through one of my best friends! They went to school together. We were long distance for 3 years because he had already joined the Military when we met.

I don't really know what my favorite color is! I used to love purple, but even then I couldn't tell you why. I do love neutrals and earthy tones. The deep tones of the colors, like rust or olive green, mustard yellow, etc. I think color in general is beautiful. My wardrobe consists of mostly neutrals though :)

How did you and your husband Meet?

What is your favorite Color and why?

What makes you happy?

I'm happiest when my people are happy. It really doesn't take much to make me happy. I'm pretty content with the simplicities of life, but I guess to name a few things:
01. The sun is a big one for me. I love the warmth, the light shining through the windows into our home, the way it bleeds through the trees and covers the earth. oohhh it's my fav. 
02. Music. I love deep, meaningful music, and also some upbeat music. My favorite genre is Alternative without a doubt.
03. Being surrounded by family. Since we live so far away, being around my parents and siblings really make life that much sweeter. They are moments I cherish even more because there are so few at the moment.

When did you know you wanted to be a photographer?

When I was 13, I actually sold my Nintendo DS to save money to buy my first DSLR. My aunt was a photographer, and I later found out my dad was into photography growing up, too. Fast forward to high school, I didn't know what I wanted to be because I thought I had to choose something traditional -- teaching, or getting a business degree. A degree of some sorts, so you can seem validated and make everyone else proud. I was actually going through a really dark time when I decided to do things for myself. I took a semester off from school, and picked up my camera again. Photography has always come natural to me, but I hadn't learned how to use  the camera so it never "clicked" (no pun intended)..2017 was a big year of creating for me. It took a lot of courage to finally start my business and charge people money for something I genuinely love doing. 

That's a long winded answer, but basically I knew I wanted to be a photographer when I couldn't explain how I photograph people. It's just what I see, how I interpret life and the beauty of others. My dad always told me I had a good eye for it, just took me a while to really realize that myself.

There is something I need from you, though, and it is really important. I want to make sure we are a good fit for each other. Everyone needs to find a photographer who matches them. Their life, goals, etc., and that's really important for me. I want to make sure I am able to give 110% and if not, I want you to find a photographer who can give you the best.
