Hello! I am a photographer and the mother of two amazing and wonderful little girls. One was born with a song in her heart and is full of curiosity and energy (Madeline) and my other is all about snuggles and is bursting with creativity and a love for art (Lilah). They are my world and have taught me so much about love, patience, compassion and staying present. I also have a fur baby, a sweet and forever young-at-heart Yorkie (Lulu).
I was raised in Tacoma, WA and I left when I was 21 to join the Air Force. 7 years later my enlistment ended and I went on to experience college life and earn a degree. My adventures have now landed me in Tucson, AZ where I am embracing a love for southwest living. I am a minimalist that likes travel, DIY projects and taking my kiddos to the movies.
When it comes to life I like the funny, free, raw and intimate. Capturing these moments is my joy. I am a storyteller. As I think of people I have lost or desperately tried to pause time as my children grow at warp speed I always come to a place of complete adoration and love for a photograph. This is why I believe that photography is so important in creating a legacy for each and every one of us. When you see your story in print it can change the way you see your life and make you appreciate the things you didn't see before. The story becomes more valuable as time passes so the appreciation never stops evolving.
"A good photograph is one that communicates a fact, touches the heart and leaves the viewer a changed person for having seen it. It is, in a word, effective." -Irving Penn
