Live the life you love, love the life you live. 

Zina is stunning. No doubt. But she also has a spark. A spark that is ignited into full blown splendor in front of the camera. I’m certain you’ll be seeing her face and fiery personality everywhere soon. She’s filled with lovely and feisty life.




twenty fourteen

2014, in a nutshell, was a year of discovery and transition. In August I returned from a year and a half hiatus (having my little Oliver) to reestablishing my photography business. The seasons were strung together from peek to valley, threaded from moment to moment, expanded by never-ending change, rattled by turmoil and loss and fortified by finding the shimmer of light in the shadows. There were many moments of the daily, the ordinary, the uncertainty, the simple joys, the shadows and the light. There was a season of darkness. There was a season of light. In those seasons I learned that every chapter is worth capturing, remembering and imprinting. I used to only look for the bright light and thought life should be brilliant at all times. However, the luminosity of light never seemed so beautiful until in came from the shadows. There are shadows everywhere and within everyone. And they shouldn’t be ignored for that is where the shine lights the brightest.

Now, instead of insisting on brightness all the time, I quietly and patient wait for light to emerge from the shadows.

Thank you to all my repeating clients – your loyalty and trust in me makes my job so fulfilling. Thank you to new clients for giving me a shot and playing with me. Thank you to most of my clients that become friends – greatest job perk! Thank you for all the amazing referrals that kept me incredibly busy the past 5 months that I have been back, it gives me great hope for 2015 – I know there are tons and tons of options and I appreciate it all and always.

Cheers to twenty fifteen and the upcoming seasons of light and dark. Embrace it all.

Two doggie fellas showered in love by their humans.

Love, love, love when clients bring their dogs/pets/fids with them! These two were so fun to shoot with, such handsome fellas! And their human’s aren’t so bad themselves. :)

Juliet is just about the sweetest little thing you ever did see. She was awesome to photograph – totally easy going, smiles to spare and a whole lot of love for mama, papa and a bit of dirt play! Love sessions like this!


Rebecca & A Sweet Baby Bump

September 11, 2014 · Families, Portraits

How many times do I have to tell you
Even when you’re crying you’re beautiful too
The world is beating you down, I’m around through every mood
You’re my downfall, you’re my muse
My worst distraction, my rhythm and blues
I can’t stop singing, it’s ringing, in my head for you


Becca was a radiant expectant mother, pregnancy seemed to suit her to a tee. And the flowers in her hair were perfect. You can never go wrong with flowers in your hair. These sweet folks just welcomed their precious daughter to the world a few days ago. Congratulations Becca, Todd & family!


On another note: I just announced fall mini sessions! These are perfect for upcoming holiday cards, updating family photos or just because :) See more info
