This life is pretty awesome and fleeting, and probably the only one we have, so let’s take your storytelling photographs for someone to discover in an attic someday. Whatever your moment is we’re capturing, I only want you to be authentically you.
I know how to manage the Momzilla, adjust times on the fly when makeup takes too long, deal with crappy lighting after the pretty natural light goes away, and make the most out of an unexpected raining day. With a BA in Photography and Art minor, 20 years experience as a professional photographer, and 13 of that shooting weddings - that experience is kind of a big deal.
My style focuses on humor, emotion, and the quaint and in-between moments, and is a blend of documentary and fine art photography. Honest and raw. I shoot anything from weddings to families, to boudoir, and just about everything in between - and I’m happy to travel just about anywhere.
My major loves include my husband Joseph and magical kid Neko, all things paranormal, old school indie rock, making home, my 2 dogs Arf and Barkley, plastic cameras, cabins in the woods, collecting rocks, drunk interpretive dancing, mixed-media art, laying in green grass, doughnuts, and puns.
That's my story - I'd love to hear yours.
