Owning and operating a successful photography business has taken over 12 years of blood sweat and a lot of tears- (yes, I am a crier.)  
I cry because I get to peek behind the veil of beautiful weddings.
I cry when brides from a decade ago still gush to me about their photos.
I cry when I have too much editing to do and I can't spend time with my two kids and husband.
I cry when I make genuine connections with couples, and they call me to photograph their tiny newborn after years of infertility struggles.
I cry because I am so extremely proud and passionate about what I do and how I do it.

In the past three years of my career I have really shifted my approach to weddings and how I can do my best serving my clients. I strive to capture and not create moments. I try to balance being a mom and a wife while still finding joy in something that makes me truly happy.
Oh, and I can honestly say that-

Hey! Hi! Hello 

I have the coolest job on the planet.

If it's about how
you feel 
rather than how
you look-
You'll be able to let your guard down and capture genuine moments that reflect your true personality.

"You'll love your photos more if you take them in front of someone who makes you feel comfortable"
