People, teaching, and crafting have been my passions for as long as I can remember. I was an elementary teacher for 5 years (I even made it through 2020, woop-woop) but I was always caught feeling the not-so-subtle pull to become a full time photographer.
That's when I decided to just do it. I wasn't going to let fear hold me back and I haven't regretted the decision since! I get to have the freedom I always wanted, take naps with my weenies daily, and only work with the people who bring me joy.
In my free time you can catch me crafting, aimlessly walking the aisles of TJ Maxx and Target, or dancing in my kitchen with my wiener pups and a glass of wine in hand.
I'm an ambivert (where are all my extroverted introverts at?!) who leaves the bars by 8 because she can't stand the noise once the bands start to pick up (I also need to get to bed). I like to think I'm the perfect balance of chaos and calm.
Being a photographer means more to me than just taking a picture. You aren't just choosing me as your photographer. You're choosing me to be your friend. To share these intimate moments with you and the people you're closest to. No matter what type of session you book, you'll walk away with more than a gallery of images.
Some things I can guarantee if you book me - we'll laugh together, time will fly by, and we'll create a connection that lasts longer than just your session.

in a nutshell
I will drink coffee at any time of the day (or night), I'm convinced that caffeine helps calm my ADD brain. When the moment calls, anything bubbly is my backup. Truly Lemonades, mimosas, moscato d'asti.
While I wish I had time to actually read books, I've learned that audiobooks are the next best thing! With all the time I spend in my car traveling from session to session, I love losing myself in a good smutty book. Check out my personal IG highlight with my reads of the year!
I like to think of myself as an unofficial professional shopper. I'm always on the hunt for a good deal but equally love supporting other small businesses! If I have any amount of time to kill between errands, you'll catch me casually walking the aisles of my closest TJ Maxx or Marshalls.
I have 2 weenies that I love endlessly! Remi and Frankie, the newest addition take up my attention most days with the amount of crap they get in to! I said goodbye to Toby (meanie weenie) at the end of 2023.
