About me

Photography is a dream job for me!  I've loved all things creative for as long as I can remember.  I'd taken photography classes here and there but it wasn't until after we brought our son home in 2004 that I became a student of the art, reading everything I could get my hands on and talking to anyone who would talk to me about it.

After enjoying a successful 13 year career in Marketing for a major publishing company, I found myself wanting to take on the role of the creative vendors I was hiring.  I took the leap and left the corporate world to pursue some exciting design opportunities.  It was then that photography and documenting my own child's life through pictures became an addiction, a passion that I love to share with others.

As a Mom of two, I know how quickly time passes and how those memories we think we'll remember forever quickly fade over time.  Being behind the camera capturing moments of your lives, then coming home and creating pieces of art that will tell your story for generations to come has been such an incredible experience.  Every client, every session is different and unique so this job never grows old!

My most important job, however, is right here at home.  I'm a wife to an amazingly supportive husband (I should write that twice!), and an adoptive mom to two beautiful kids, Brendan (7) and Kyra (3), who keep me running but I wouldn't change a thing.  I'm also a daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, friend and neighbor, not always in that order but all major roles that make my life feel complete.

i heart faces: slice of life

Things have been a little crazy around here and I’ve missed a few weeks over at I Heart Faces.  And when I say I’ve missed them, I’m not only talking about not participating in the weekly challenge, I have seriously missed all the inspiration over there!  When I saw this week’s theme was “Slice of Life”, I took a quick look at the images I had from a number of lifestyle sessions but somehow I clicked into a personal folder and found this.  In warmer weather, this is an everyday occurrence … my daughter walking my son to his bus stop at the end of the street directing him where to go and what to do. She is on him from the time he wakes up, if he’s late getting dressed, taking too long brushing his teeth.  She reminds him to grab his lunch, his bag, tells him his shoes aren’t tied, and on and on.  She thinks she’s the boss which, of course, doesn’t go over well with big brother.  My Mom says I was the same way with my older brother.  Hmmm.  Luckily he has a sense of humor … most of the time. 😉
