God Moments

November 6, 2013




I have these MOMENTS …. I like to call them GOD MOMENTS. God Moment: When I feel so overwhelmed by God’s presence and goodness.  I had one when I was editing today and it just touched me almost to tears. I was in Starbucks so I had to compose myself because my barista friends might have thought I was losing it.

First off, I love engagement sessions. Couples get to be goofy, CUTE and just plain IN LOVE but there was something about this session, THIS PICTURE, that struck me. It struck a HEART STRING. I mean, how cool is it that I got to see this couple’s love? Not only was their love so strong but we were all immersed in God’s beauty that day! I just felt GOD in it all.

I see the beauty in imperfect things. As a Christ-follower, faith is central to my life, work, and connections. I am fueled by joy, known for my bubbly and sunny disposition, and always with a warm hug. Imperfect beauty inspires my love for all things vintage, abstract art, and real love stories. I love moments full of grit and emotion; life off the beaten path; stunning views along the shore; and the juxtaposition of New York grunge and laid back Cali-vibe. 

As a mother of two, I am very familiar with how quickly life’s most important moments fly by too quickly. I will calmly and seamlessly guide you through frames that will endure. I strive to capture your memories with one-of-a-kind images full of meaning. I cannot wait to connect with you! 

I bring all of these elements to my time with my couples. With over a decade of experience in the industry, I know how to gently guide you through poses that are natural and beautiful. The transition into this sentence doesn’t make sense. Throughout your day, you will feel the love from those there to celebrate
 you two. 
When I’m not photographing weddings, I enjoy long walks in the neighborhood with my husband, my kiddos Tuxie and Sunny, and my labradoodle Hokie.. Also, I am a huge dog-lover! I’m pretty sure heaven is full of dogs. I can’t wait to connect with you, and yes, your pup is always welcome here!
