I can remember always having a camera with me from the time I was young. I loved capturing the moments I was living. I knew it would always be important for me to look back on my life and not only see my memories but truly feel them. I think that is why photography found me. It is true of me that you can find me most of the time with a camera in my hands. My friends and family understand that fully. I am grateful to capture and document the real moments of our lives. That is why my photography won't always be the "perfect" everyone looking at the camera pictures. I live for the moments when my clients forget I'm even there and just be. My daddy made me appreciate those kind of moments. His passing made me even more passionate about my photography. Grandparent pictures are one of my favorites! To see generation after generation and the love that lives forever honestly touches my soul. I would be honored to capture your memories for you. Thank you for letting me be a small part of your lives. I hope my photography will allow you to always feel the moments you live.

Ok. I think this is the best picture.. and yes.. I know the sprinkler is in the shot. I know I am a professional photographer but give me a little break...I am also a mom (with a baby). What you don't see in this shot is that my nine month old is crawling around my feet (and I am desperately trying to keep sticks and leaves out of his mouth while taking the shot.) Also...I didn't even know my daughter had run up in the shot because as I was clicking I was looking down at...the baby. So thank you God for my kids. Thank you God for the sprinkler to remind me that the perfection isn't the is the life in the shot. Thank you God for the wind that let Jude's cape fly (or maybe he really is superman). Thank you God for a night to be together and see my super kids having fun with friends. They really are super kids. With every breath...I am grateful.
