I love late nights, real laughs, genuine love, fresh air, and the kind of dream clients like when it comes to going on an adventure. If you're into photos that feel as real as you are, you want your memories made to last, and you'd like to make a friend  in the process, keep scrolling, We can't wait to meet you.

How many people reading this can say that they have lived in the same bedroom for 22 years?  Now if you are elderly and have lived in the same house for 40 years, I bet you have surpassed me.  If you are 33 like me, it may be slim pickings.  The reason why I have […]

March is Kidney Cancer Awareness month. I have shared in a previous post about my cancer story and how cancer touches close to home with me of all kinds. When I hear someone who is going through dialysis, waiting on a list for a kidney, or is fighting the fight of kidney cancer, I instantly […]

My husband and I knew this was going to be a year of learning.  Since the passing of my father-in-law last year, we had a lot of responsibilities that got handed to us, that we didn’t know anything about.  We started praying for guidance and direction last year for what God want’s us to do.  […]

In a few months, I will be re-doing our kitchen with some updated paint and countertops.  I still am not sure if I will paint the kitchen walls or not, but I am looking forward to some home updating! If you know me, I do love to decorate and make the house warm and cozy.  […]

As far as I can remember, I have always had a young heart.  My mom actually put me a year ahead when I was young, because my birthday was in October and back then I believe you couldn’t start school if your birthday was after September.  Since I was in daycare and they already had […]

Since I have been doing the annual Stay Strong cancer portrait session, I thought it would be a good time to share my story.  I always joke and said cancer runs in my family like water, because it seems to be true and the sad part is, its all different kinds of cancer, not just […]

I talked before on how much photography means to me and how important it is to capture “right now”.  Well my husband is alot similar in the same way.  Its not natural for him to pick up a camera or to snap a picture in the moment, but I know its not second nature for […]
