thoughtfully capturing the moments that would come together to tell the story. Through these experiences I learned so much about anticipating moments, being able to think quickly on my feet, and being able to find the beauty in the in between times. When I made the decision to establish my own business, these skills had perfectly equipped me to photograph the truly unique event that is a wedding!
I've spent the last almost 15 years moving around the country and traveling the world with my partner in all things: my husband, Rick. After meeting at The University of North Carolina many moons ago, Rick and I knew that this life was meant for us to do together and we haven't looked back since. Rick's career as an officer in the Army finds us moving all over the country and affords us the opportunity to explore new places
and take in new experiences. Avid travelers, you will often find us exploring a new country with Rick waiting patiently as I stop to photograph every incredible scene (or flower) we come across.

Exploring the amazing world we live in inspires my creativity and cultivates an appreciation for the kindness, love, and beauty in all corners of the world.

Everything from my collection of beautiful planters and pots to the fascinating variety of shapes, colors, and sizes of plants just draws me in! I currently have over 30 different sizes and varieties of plants filling up our tiny DC apartment!
Squirrel is our ultimate and constant little companion. We chose to adopt her from the shelter when she attacked Rick's fingers through her cage - she was feisty then and not much has changed! This cat is more well traveled than most people I know and as long as she has a lap to curl up on, she'll gladly go with us anywhere!
