I am a mom of boys, lover of coffee & wine. Photography and family are my passions. I lay my head in Northern California, but love love love to travel!

I truly believe the camera is not the most important part.

I strive to tell a story and capture a moment. I am an observer and want my images to capture the person or people on the other side of my lens. My favorite quote, "Its one thing to take a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are." Paul Caponigro

I am motivated to create. I keep looking for ways to improve myself and my craft. I try not to place my career onto one platform; yet keep looking for new creative ways to showcase my passion. I want to be outdoors and see all the wonderful parts of the earth and those who inhabit along with me. Motivation is my fuel to keep myself relevant and informed. Photography has given me the viewfinder to see and capture many things, people and moments within my life. I feel very fortunate to have found such a wonderful career!
