I have always loved telling stories.  I am genuinely unrefined and enjoy capturing moments that are marvelously ordinary.

Our lives are so fast-paced, sometimes it’s hard to slow down and appreciate the simplicity or complexity of the “right now.” I find some of the most chaotic of situations can posses the most beautiful memories-- and I want to pinch that moment in time and save it so that you can look back on it always. My style is natural and candid. I am fascinated by the details. I want to capture the enchantment of a fresh life, the innocence and enthusiasm of little ones, and the joyful love of families.

There is a story behind each photo, and I would be flattered if you’d invite me to join you to share yours.
