Photographing in only natural light, my biggest desire is to make images that capture real, honest moments and connection. I've loved photography since I was a girl, but my heart for photography grew when I became a mom, raising my kids has been my biggest inspiration so far. 

I love helping photographers how to see and edit, teaching The Simple Edit at Illuminate has become one of my greatest passions. 

Currently, I photograph a very limited number of sessions each year. If you like my work and want to book, please contact me for availability & keep in mind I typically book 4-6 weeks in advance.
