I'd love to give you a little peek into my world so you can get to know me a little better. I'm married to my high school sweetheart, Bobby - this year we celebrate 8 years of marriage and 14 years together! (makes me feel so old) He is my best friend and I can't imagine sharing all of life's ups and downs with anyone else. We have two fur babies - Rocky and Cooper - that we love like children. Yes, I'm one of those crazy dog people that I swore I'd never be - I'm sure you'll get to see pictures of them. Photography has been a hobby of mine since I was a kid with my little disposable cameras. I've always been fascinated by the concept of freezing a moment in time that you can enjoy for years to come. The very best photos are the ones that show real life, love, and true emotion. The best parts of my job are meeting new people, making them feel comfortable in front of the camera, and creating beautiful images that they didn't think were possible. One of my other passions is caring for children. I majored in Child Development in college and have worked in childcare for 10+ years. This experience has helped me tremendously while photographing young children (which can often be a source of great stress for families). Parents are quite comforted when I reassure them that these challenges during family sessions are not only normal and expected, but also I'm 100% prepared to handle these challenges and provide them with images they'll love!
