  • “The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.” ― Audrey Hepburn
  • We can all benefit from an extra dose of motivation every now and then, right? And the Internet seems chock full of clever little quotes about it. My current go-to is: dreams are free, the hustle is sold separately. Share your favorite in the comments below—we can all use a little push!
  • Have you ever felt like you’re the only one in the world who needs something particularly particular? Do you have a vision for an unconventional lifestyle shoot? I love working with clients to turn their dreams into reality, and I’m always excited for a new challenge. What can I do for you?
  • Who’s your biggest cheerleader? Over the past decade in this business, my mom has never failed to support me through my many ups and downs. Whenever I need encouragement through a new challenge, she is always there and I couldn’t be luckier. Who does the same for you? #mom #cheerleader
  • Let’s play a fun game: 3 truths and a lie. Ready? 
Most of these facts about me are true... can you guess which one isn’t? ⁠

1. I love photographing lifestyle sessions.⁠ 2. I speak four languages.⁠ 3. I thought I'd marry my husband the day we met.⁠ 4. Math was my favorite subject in school. ⁠

Let me know in a comment which one of these “facts” is, in fact, NOT a fact. 🤣
  • When was the last time you had family photos taken? I schedule my own family photos every year. I value sitting back and letting someone turn us into art! Click the link in the bio to schedule a session for your family. ❤️
  • So this shoot wasn’t planned! My daughter and I were on our way to attend photography club when we saw this field as we were driving past and decided to give it a shot! ☀️🌿
  • What do you look forward to every morning? For me it’s a peaceful walk with my little cockapoo followed by a steaming latte —but I’d have that no matter what I did for a living. Being a photographer means everyday I either look forward to a portrait session or editing a recent session and that’s truly a joy! What gets you out of bed every morning?
  • The way to know life is to love many things. -Vincent Van Gogh 🌻 I hope you love many. 💛

  • What marks the official start of summer for you? As a kid I always thought the last day of school marked the beginning. Now, it doesn’t really feel like summer until we get to enjoy lazy days at the pool and pull burgers off the grill. What’s the real start of summer for you? #summerfun☀️
