After working in the professional world for over a decade, I became a full-time mom. Now that my kids are older, I love having the time to focus on my two other babies: photography and writing, and I find that one creative outlet informs and inspires the other.

I have been a photographer since a neighbor handed me my first camera, an old Kodak Insta-something when I was eight. Now I prefer the unexpected over the traditional, the candid shot over the posed, the moment after the pose over the pose itself.

I believe in the importance of strong, positive customer service. I want my clients to feel special, happy, gorgeous, and well-cared-for throughout their photography adventure. A relaxed client makes an even more beautiful client on that most important of all days, and I will go above and beyond for my clients to ensure that.

The key to capturing beautiful, memorable images is a good relationship and positive chemistry with my clients. My assistant and second photographer, Jessica Harris, and I work hard to capture beautiful, memorable images on every wedding day we shoot, but we also work hard to make sure our clients, their wedding party, and their families feel comfortable, relaxed, and happy. We love to hear at the end of the day: "You guys were so much fun!" because that's exactly what our clients should remember at the end of their wedding day. We want our clients to have the time of their lives while we capture it. We believe in exceeding our clients' expectations, not merely  meeting them.
