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: friendships

This week’s theme over at I Heart Faces is Friendships.  I wasn’t going to play this week because I’m just coming off an obsessive weekend of party planning for my 4 year old’s Enchanted Fairy birthday party.  Then I stumbled across this photo of my 7 year old and his buddies at a recent sleepover.  This is a nice break from the girlie stuff I’m editing and the image totally cracks me up with all the different expressions!  I’ve heard it said that with 3 or more at this age, there’s bound to be problems but it’s amazing to watch these guys play together.  They have lots of similar interests but is each his own man.  There’s respect among them already and they genuinely enjoy every minute of each other’s company.  I feel lucky my son is a part of this crew and even luckier that all the parents get along just as famously.  To friendships … young and old!  🙂
