"I didn't choose photography. Photography chose me. - Gerardo Suter

I have loved photography for as long as I can remember, but like a lot of photographers it was becoming a mother that gave me the push I needed to become more serious about learning my art.

As a mother of 2, I want to remember all the stages that my children go through. With my camera I am able to freeze each of these fleeting times in their lives so that I can come back to them and remember how cute they were as a chunky ten pound newborn or toddling around at one year old or twirling and singing “Let it Go” as a four year old. These are things that we think that we will remember forever, but somehow the details get foggy without these photographic reminders.

Things, besides photography, that bring me joy include finding new local weekend adventures, traveling, spinning, home decorating, and trying out new Pinterest recipes.

My BIGGEST joy is my family.

I realize that life, especially life with children, seems to pass so quickly. There seems to be an infinite, on-going to-do list. Let me take care of all the details of capturing your most important family memories.

I look forward to hearing from you!
