A little about me: I've been photographing portraits, events and weddings professionally for more than ten years. I served as the Head of Photography for a national retail chain, creating all of their product photography, but took my own business full time in 2014. I get so much enjoyment out of creating heirloom photographs for my clients!

I'm an avid genealogist, and value family photos more than anything else that I find in my research. I like to imagine someone one day valuing my work as much as I value the few existing photos of my great grandparents in their youth.

I also occupy my time with aerial fitness, gardening, great dane wrangling (I have two great danes, and yes, they weigh more than me, and no, they don't have saddles... yet), watching sci fi shows, reading fantasy novels, singing along to an incredibly eclectic selection of music from Bob Wills to Lizzo, playing celtic fiddle, and learning to play mandolin.


My husband Opie and I married in 2009. I reminisce about our wedding day at every wedding that I capture. I love life with my software engineer husband and our two giant dogs. I met my husband because he was a regular customer at an old job. Several of my closest friends entered my life as photography clients, and I look forward to befriending more of you!
