I am SO glad that you are here. If you’ve found me it must mean that you value keeping memories safe and you’re not willing to settle for anything less than images that honestly tell your story. As a kid I was oblivious, but as I’ve gotten older I realized that my family didn’t make taking pictures a priority. During the holidays or on special occasions, my grandfather would dust off his Polaroid camera to snap a few photos. I can still remember the sound that his camera made when it spit out an undeveloped picture. I loved seeing him behind that camera. Nostalgia aside, a few Polaroid photos are all that I have left of my childhood and of the people I loved so deeply. I am here to help you capture and guard those memories for safekeeping so you never have to lose what you’re afraid you won’t remember.
When my daughter was born, I promised myself I wouldn’t let the same thing happen to her childhood memories. I made it my mission to passionately document everything- the momentous occasions and the quiet, everyday life- so she wouldn’t have to grow up replaying her life like an old dusty film in her mind. I have been intentionally documenting her life for the last seven years and that’s how I ended up behind my camera.
If I’m not snapping photographs, I’m in scrubs. Although I call the Cumberland, Maryland area home, I have been a critical care registered nurse in my hometown of Winchester, Virginia for nine years. As a bedside nurse, I witness some of life’s most miraculous victories but I’m also incredibly aware of how unfair, and how quickly life can change. Because of my unique perspective, you can trust me to document the depth, love, strength, passion, and joy of the moments you wish to hold onto tightly. I am a lover of people and genuine moments and it’s my passion to create artistic, emotive images that are an honest reflection of your life- images that are deeply rooted in the beautiful story of your life no matter what chapter I’ve met you in. So, we don’t do posed and overly planned here. We do big belly laughs and magical moments. We do messy and chaotic. More importantly, we do real life, real moments, and love unscripted.
