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.

I just want to take the time today to say THANK YOU to all the men and woman who have served and are serving our country. My daddy was in the army for over 30 years. He was a helicopter pilot. He was in the korean and Vietnam wars. Besides being a husband and dad...I can say his greatest joy was serving our country. When he passed away 5 years ago.. he was honored beautifully by soldiers at his funeral. In fact, the young man who handed my mom the flag at his casket had tears in his eyes for my dad's service. My daddy was buried in his full army attire with his medals. The last thing I ever told my daddy was to go ahead and go to heaven...that his helicopter was waiting on him. Today as I reflect on his service...I thank you men and women for your service. Thank you for putting your life on the line for mine. For my children. For my children's children. Because of you..I sit here safely in my house today. I am in awe of your service for me. You make our country beautiful. Thank you.
Daddy... Today..I hope you are flying the best helicopter ever.
