quick facts about me
I've photographed and studied all over the world and love seeing new places and meeting new people. I love camping and frequently pack up my family and little dog, Squirrel, to pull our camper and explore all over the USA!
I always have multiple renovation projects and ideas going at one time. Luckily multi-tasking is my super power! I love sushi, will never turn down a glass of red wine with a friend, and always enjoy new adventures with my partner and kids.
There is never a day that doesn't start with coffee.
+ I will literally eat anything (or at least try it once), except bananas!
+ I have a Master's Degree in Education and have always loved teaching.
+ We have 5 kids in our house. Luckily I'm used to chaos!
+ I love animals of all kinds and have fostered both cats and dogs for years.
+ I'm a Colorado native, but I have to touch an ocean at least twice a year.
+ I have friends all over the world and feel that people have come into and out of my life for a reason.
+ I connect easily with strangers and often they tell me all kinds of fascinating personal things about their life.
I love both light and airy branding photos and dark and moody couple's sessions. I shoot in stunning locations in Colorado and around the world, but also in my studio. My personal style is a little boho, no frills, romantic. I love natural elements like peonies and dried grasses and anything with a beautiful texture. You might find me trying to put a hat on your head or flowers in your hair during our session...
Existing in portraits was never a priority for my mom and now that she's gone, I would give anything to have those moments captured. She, like many women, always avoided the camera for one reason or another. I cherish every photo we have of her. Women should EXIST in photographs! My mission is to encourage women to leave a legacy of their life through portraits, not only for themselves but for their family.

After my son was born I took this photo and was blown away by the impact and emotion an image could elicit. This portrait still means so much to me. I started my business to capture these important moments for others and have been shooting ever since!
My dad put a camera in my hands at a young age and I spent years helping him photograph weddings. After studying Fine Art at the University of Colorado, I found my passion in portraiture. I've been mentored by some of the best photographers, retouchers, and educators in the industry and continue to learn and study with those I admire. I recently became an accredited photographer and am also working towards my masters. I regularly enter print competitions and have several award winning images. I'll never stop learning and growing in my craft!

My favorite part about being a photographer and entrepreneur is that every day is different! I love creating something new and beautiful that captures the person in front of my lens in a way they never would have imagined. I'll show you a shot or two, watch your face light up, and see your confidence soar! My secret sauce for getting amazing images is the connection and trust I build with you. I've got you... now let's have some fun!
