I'm first and foremost a mother and wife. I have an amazing husband who is my biggest supporter and fan, and my four darling children. We have three boys and our newest addition is a little lady (finally!!).
One thing you really need to know about me is that I absolutely do love what I do, and I HAVE FUN with it. I get excited, I squeal, and I jump up and down during portraits! My job isn't just my job, it's my passion. I can't imagine myself doing anything else in this world other than capturing raw emotion and true love!

One of the best moments I ever witness is that amazing first look. The moment when the bride or groom sees their partner is always a tear jerker, and one of the most emotional, meaningful minutes of the day. For just a moment, the world sort of stops. I love it! Here are some tips for a truly amazing first look, so take note, brides and grooms.
The Blue Dress Barn recently included a new ceremony site, and wanted to do a session to show how beautiful it is! I could just imagine these many benches filled with loved ones celebrating a wedding day with a happy couple, and know this new ceremony spot will hold many memories to come.
Sometimes, I get to do sessions for family and friends. It’s not all that often, but when I do, it lends an aspect that is even more special than a wedding or elopement for a brand-new client (as special as those are, of course!). This beautiful bride is one of my best friends, Kim. She’s always been my biggest cheerleader and support system, and she is a true treasure in my life.
