About   Me

hey friend!

A little about me. Mom of three gorgeous human beings and two adorable pups.  Wife of Mr. Handsome. I LOVE love; this is what has kept me going for the past 13+ years as a photographer. I prefer to catch you in the moment versus staged and posed (we will mix in a little of that as well).  Our memories can fade but a moment preserved in time can not. It is very important for me to capture who you are at this time. Every ounce of beauty, silliness or emotion. 

That is enough about me.  I would love to learn about you. 

i'm so glad you are here!
