VISION

LIFE IS ART.  IT'S BEAUTIFUL. IT'S MESSY AT TIMES. I LOOK FOR ALL OF IT WHEN I WORK BEHIND THE LENS. MY CLIENTS KNOW THAT AND EMBRACE THE GOOD - THE BAD - AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN. I ENJOY BEING AROUND PEOPLE WHO AREN'T AFRAID TO BE DIFFERENT. I ENJOY WORKING WITH PEOPLE WHO SHARE A UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE ESPECIALLY WHEN IT'S DIFFERENT FROM MY OWN.  I LOVE SHOWING MY CLIENTS HOW FREAKIN' AWESOME - BEAUTIFUL - AND UNIQUE THEY ABSOLUTELY ARE .  .  .  .  .

BEHIND THE CAMERA 

 

I AM A MOTHER FIRST.  I HAVE THREE GIRLS WHO ARE TRULY THE BEST THINGS I'VE EVER CREATED AND NURTURED. THEY'RE BEAUTIFUL LITTLE HUMANS AND I'M THANKFUL FOR EACH DAY I'M GIVEN TO BE THEIR MOTHER.  I AIM TO TEACH THEM TO BE STRONG WOMEN WHO GO AFTER THEIR DREAMS. I WORK HARD - EVERY DAY - TO SHOW THEM EXACTLY HOW THAT'S DONE.

EVER SINCE I PICKED UP A CAMERA AS A TEENAGER IN HIGH SCHOOL - I'VE AIMED TO DO NOTHING ELSE BUT PHOTOGRAPH LIFE - HOW I SEE IT. I BELIEVE IN MY VISION. WHATEVER IT IS THEY CHOOSE TO DO IN LIFE - I HOPE THEY TOO BELIEVE IN THEMSELVES - FEARLESSLY - AUTHENTICALLY - RELENTLESSLY.  

WE ENJOY LOOKING UP AT THE SKY WHETHER IT BE AT SUNRISE, SUNSET OR LONG AFTER THE SUN HAS GONE DOWN.  OUR FAMILY FACILITATES THE LINK BETWEEN SCIENCE AND THE ARTS WHICH OFTENTIMES FEULS OUR CONVERSATIONS AT THE DINNER TABLE.

I'VE BEEN MARRIED FOR 10 YEARS AND IT FEELS LIKE OUR GIRLS ARE GROWING SO FAST.  I AM A SPECIAL NEEDS MAMA AND WHILE MY GIRLS ARE HIGH FUNCTIONING - I FEEL PULLED TO CONNECT WITH OTHER FAMILIES WHO HAVE BEEN FACED WITH SIMILAR STRUGGLES AND TRIUMPHS - ESPECIALLY MAMAS. 

I LOVE WHAT I DO.  I HONESTLY KNOW OF NOTHING ELSE BECAUSE PHOTOGRAPHY, SIMPLY PUT, IS PART OF WHO I AM AND ALWAYS WILL BE.
