I grew up in Scottsdale, AZ, but I'm originally from Texas. I'm proud to be a TEXAN and appreciate everything from our beautiful sunsets to the gorgeous open fields and the community of people who genuinely care for one another.
I'm married with two teenagers, and we're avid travelers. Some of our favorite destinations include Cape Cod, Thousand Islands, Tennessee, New Hampshire, and upstate New York. Traveling is my LOVE LANGUAGE because it allows me to see the beauty in the world around us.
As a photographer, I make it a priority to research all the best places for fun photographs and the perfect wardrobe for not only my personal photographs, but for clients too! I've found that my clients have the best time creating magical memories while traveling with us.
When I'm not traveling, I love enjoying a cup of coffee on the porch during sunrise. If I had 100 acres of land, I would keep ALL the animals from our sessions. I'm the friend you can always count on for a last-minute fun idea. I LIVE for girls’ trips and love a good self-improvement book. As a business owner, sharing my love of life and photography with my clients through photographs of their family brings me SO MUCH JOY.
’m so excited you’re here! Get to know me as your family photographer...
Capturing your family's memories is my DREAM JOB! When my clients call me "their family's photographer," it's the BEST COMPLIMENT I could receive.

Family is EVERYTHING to me, and I believe it's the same for you. As time goes by, your family will grow and change, and I want to be there to capture those PRECIOUS MOMENTS that you'll cherish forever. The memory of your children's first steps, your first family photo, the first school year, adopting a family pet, their tween & teen years, their senior year, and everything in between, I would be honored to document your journey and create beautiful heirloom images. As my own family grows, I find comfort in the portraits we've captured over the years, preserving our memories for generations to come. Let me be the one to curate your family's legacy images, a TREASURE you'll hold dear for a lifetime.

As a passionate traveler, my heart swells with excitement at the prospect of exploring new destinations and experiencing all they have to offer. Researching each location in detail, I carefully plan to fit in every bucket list activity, capturing every moment with my camera.
Capturing epic portraits of my clients in unique locations is my favorite part of the journey. My recent journey to all of the US national parks was a transformative experience, filling me with awe at the majestic beauty of our country. The Utah parks, in particular, captured my heart, with their stunning landscapes and awe-inspiring vistas. I’ve also chased waterfalls throughout the eastern US, filling my heart with a sense of wonder and reverence for the natural world. Photography isn't just a job to me; it's a soulful passion.
We LOVE to go to beaches!

I cannot imagine my life without my beloved dogs. To me, they're not just pets, but members of my family. They bring so much joy, laughter, and unconditional love into my life, and I feel truly blessed to have them by my side.
One of my favorite activities is taking my furry companions to the park. Watching them run, jump, and play is an absolute delight. Seeing the sheer happiness in their eyes is enough to make any bad day instantly better. And when we’re lucky enough to go on family trips, I wouldn't dream of leaving them behind. It's a great experience to explore new places and create unforgettable memories with my four-legged friends.
Of course, spoiling them with treats and cuddles is a given. They deserve nothing but the best, and I relish every moment spent snuggling with them on the couch. And when they're looking particularly adorable, I can't resist capturing the moment with my camera. Every snapshot is a reminder of the love and happiness they bring into my life.
My dogs may not be human, but they are so much more than just animals to me. They are my family, my friends, and my constant companions. I’m grateful for every moment spent with them and will continue to love and appreciate them for as long as they are in my life.
Our Dogs Are Part of our family!
