me

I first discovered my love for photography when I was 10 years old.  My step-dad, Jeff, gave me an old Olympus 35mm manual camera and taught me all the basics for f-stops and shutter speeds.  I was addicted. 

As part of a class project when I was 11, I created a photography book capturing human emotion.  Today, it is still important for me to capture emotion in my photography real feeling.  I see feeling in gestures, moods, a pop of color and always a sense of place.  But most often I find real feeling in the faces of my subjects - their natural expressions and reactions to their situations and surroundings.

I feel so lucky to have a job that I enjoy.  Wedding and portrait photography is creatively fun but also very rewarding in that I get to meet so many wonderful people.

When I'm not at a wedding or portrait session, you can find me at the park with my dogs, enjoying a nice meal with my husband, dressing up in crazy costumes with my crazy friends, or travelling the world. 

I love to travel.  Opening my eyes (and my soul) to the world has inspired me to be a better person and (I hope) a better photographer.  I post travel pictures on my blog>personal from time to time so stop by and check them out and please feel free to leave a comment if you wish!
