One of my favorite things to do is get to know my clients on a friend level. Random facts and things that make them smile; Passions and goals; How they met their significant other; etc. Sometimes I forget that maybe they want to know about me too! Here are some random factoids for those interested. I don’t believe in being superficial, and with me what you see is what you get. I appreciate authenticity as much as I appreciate a good cup of coffee. 
+I love to make people laugh. Seeing joy in others is what gives me the most joy. 
+There aren’t many things in life that don’t give me a sense of wonder. Seriously, there is so much beautiful shit EVERYWHERE. This is not a sappy joke. A few of my favorite beautiful things are sunsets, the northern lights, rain drops on plants, cool cloud shapes, weather, and any animal ever. 
+I have a horrible sailor mouth. (I am super good at containing it around parents and professionals though) 
+My kids are basically the coolest. Lillian (4) and William (2).
+I watch way too much netflix
+Traveling is life. Tacos are life. 
+Lastly: Vodka tonic/lime


a little bit about

Coffee, my kids, sunsets and the northern lights, Happy Bellies Bakery, Netflix, and passion. I always need to be doing something I love!

Things I cannot live without


My most recent goal  is to travel to all 50 states before I am 50. I plan to attach a graphic here eventually where you can see where I have been and then you can fill it out too. Give me a year to get it here . HA.

In My Bag 


The person that usually chooses me for their photographer likes the genuine interaction they get, and the fact that I make them feel comfortable in front of a camera. I enjoy capturing real moments. If you are unsure of how to get there I can give you some tips. If you want more posed shots I know how to do that and will make sure we get some amazing shots with everyone smiling and looking at the camera.  Sound like a perfect fit?  Contact Me!!!!!
