When I started my business two years ago I had no followers and now- I have over 500. I cannot tell you how grateful I am that someone took the time to “LIKE” my page.  Honestly, its truly not about the “likes” but the genuine people who are standing behind you, your business, and purpose.

As time has gone by past clients; brides, families, and friends have become my cheerleaders. I’ve got a gang of cheerleaders out there, and let me tell you- you have not gone unnoticed and I appreciate you from the bottom of my heart. Those days when I questioned if I should be a photographer I read those comments and you guys inject some life back into me!

One of my New Years resolutions for my business was to blog five days a week. I’ve been a little busy with traveling lately so its a work in progress. I am remembering to give myself GRACE. -A valuable word we ALL should remember. I feel like I owe it to you to blog five days a week. I am going to do my best to make this happen. You cheer me on so I want to give you a little piece of me back, whether that be writing about my business, my passions or even about the fact that I am obsessed with Sour Patch Kids and can’t stop till a whole bag is gone…then my stomach hurts. **Sigh**

Anyways- hold me accountable. 5 DAYS A WEEK. -BOOM.

Ps- I hope you will give me grace too if I miss a day.

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!
