Why Spring Is My Favorite Season

Joy of Spring

Spring is my absolute favorite season!! As soon as I see the flowers poking through the ground my heart gets giddy!! Spring begins with the birds. Now I know they can be annoying, especially the ones that are up at  4:00a.m.. You know, the ones that start having a block party with their loud conversations or the ones who’s chirps are on “repeat mode”? Totally annoying, I get it, but isn’t there something amazing about these little creatures?? They are saying “WINTER’S OVER, LETS REJOICE!”. Then the flowers start poking through the ground; those little tulips in your yard that you never knew existed?? They pop up through the soil and stretch as if they had just woken up!! All of those purples and yellows against the dead green grass truly brings a smile to my face! The air and the breeze, AHHHH!!! I LOVE IT! I went outside last night and raised my arms to sky and just inhaled it all!!! It was just about to rain and the breeze was coming through and I seriously could have done a Spring Dance. Who doesn’t love the Cherry Blossoms??? If you haven’t  been up to DC during the Cherry Blossom Festival YOU ARE MISSING OUT. Its absolutely gorgeous and it SMELLS AMAZING! I’m telling you- the joy I get from this season overwhelms me at times. EVERYTHING IS NEW. EVERYTHING IS REJUVENATED. …and Easter. The best part of it all is that HE HAS RISEN.

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!
