Finding beauty in the ordinary {channeling my inner Pam Beesly) and always bringing a positive light are things I specialize in when it comes to being a photographer. If I'm not behind the camera, I'm usually at home on the couch, nose behind a good book, or hiking + camping with my family. I wear my heart on my sleeve, love to laugh & have fun, and am a fierce, fierce friend (quoting some HP). 

did we become friends yet?

A little more about me

Over the years, I've realized more and more the importance of being present - being where your feet are, feeling the sun on your skin, feeling your breathe move in and out of your lungs, see all the variance of color in the trees. Photography, for me, is a chance to practice being present, being mindful, and I realized how much more fun my sessions are when I encourage others to do the same. 

So, let's let go of the traditional, the expected, the posed and directive. Let's move towards the real, the genuine, the intentional, the meaningful, the grounded. Let's have fun and play. Let's have true belly laughs and be okay with our clothes getting a little messy. Let's be barefoot in the sand and roll around in the grass. 

Let's just be. I want to give you full permission to be 100% you, and I will show up with you being a 100% me. Together, we can create some pretty neat memories!
