I am an Artist and Professional Photographer with a Bachelor's Degree in Graphic Design. I have a love for natural emotion and connection that can be seen and felt through my work. My passion is photographing love and the intimate connections found in relationships; between couples, parents and babies, and the family as a whole. My specialty lies in photographing birth stories. 

I began wedding photography in 2006 and later added birth and baby photography in 2009. I have photographed hundreds of weddings and over sixty births. I've studied photography through online and in-person workshops throughout my career and my work has been published and featured in numerous professional publications and blogs throughout the years. My brand speaks for itself in the pure, natural and organic style presented, as well as the unparalleled customer experience I deliver to my clients.

As a proud member of my community, I am a supporter of the local non-profit, The Motherhood Collective. This incredible organization is dedicated to providing evidence-based education and social support programming for women from preconception through postpartum. Since 2012, I have volunteered my time and efforts to help spread the word that Maternal Health Matters. I am currently a proud member of their volunteer staff and a co-facilitator of the PMAD Support Group.

As a mother of two, I have journeyed through two very different birth experiences of my own. I welcome you to read through both of my birth stories (Sunday - 2011 and Izzie - 2015). 

i am honored to have had my work featured in the following publications:
