It’s Springtime and I keep finding the pots, jackpot! For today’s Thrifty Thursday I found two, beautiful ceramic planters, that AWESOME owl lamp, and a sweet Nirvana shirt you can’t see (trust me, it rocks). Since spring is here I have been in this green mood! I have been planting like crazy! We have this side, screened – in porch that we are turning into a jungle. Its so relaxing to sit out on our rocking chairs and just read and watch the birds. Yes I am turning into a grandma. Is that what grandmas do? ANYWAYS, I keep finding these beautiful pots so I just keep hitting up Home Depot and buying more plants for them. My husband is seeing $$$ as he reads this. He knows Goodwill = more projects and plants. HAHAHA. Okay now that owl lamp – I am pretty sure it was gaudy and someone sprayed it white. Thats okay, saves me some work. I am totally going to hit up Target and get a lamp shade for that beauty. As for the Nirvana shirt, I don’t think its totally vintage but it looks it! All these goodies found at Goodwill. We have like three in 5 mile radius. Its GENIUS & a little dangerous for us thrifters. I’ll have to plant some stuff in my pots and show you next week! Stay tuned!!

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!
