Hello,

Thank you for consider me as your photographer. No matter what journey you are on, I will be here to document every step of it. My love for photography started at a young age. I always knew that I wanted to be a photojournalist but I did not know how I would incorporate that into my life. I have always been a free spirit marching to the beat of my own drum. In my early twenties I found my love for birth after the birth of my first child. I soon certified as a labor and postpartum doula. Upon attending my first birth as a doula I knew I needed to do birth photography. That is where my life has been the last 7 years. Documenting moments for families as they meet their new little person. As with any family, the dynamic of my very own family changed and birth was no longer fitting into my lifestyle. I sat for many days pondering what I would do now with my life. What would I be documenting now? Soon after my 4 year old weaned it hit me. I need to be documenting raw Parenthood. After she weaned it was a revelation about the last 7 years of my life. Going through parenting as a working mom and staying at home with my kids. The struggles and triumphs. Parenthood is so important to document because we grow as people and our little ones grow so fast. In a blink we have newborns and then the next we have full blown children who we are chasing after. My new purpose is to bring those moments to fruition and be able to share my talent with families wanting to document those fast moving moments. I hope to see you and your family soon to capture some sweet memories for you.

What is my style?

My style is very eclectic. I have love for all things colorful and anything that reminds me of the 70’s. I love flowers and moody muted greens. I love sun flairs and moody deep skies. I really feel the energy of the family when I am shooting and that leads me to how the images are edited. Something consistent about my artwork is the emotions. Each of my images are with a purpose. I try to capture that emotion in that very moment. I love movement in my images and getting natural body flow.
