 Hey friends! I'm a natural light photographer and a mama of two little hooligans or sweethearts, depending on the day! I enjoy photographing and creating meaningful moments that people can cherish for a lifetime.

 

Just a little about me. I met my husband in 7th grade on the soccer field. My dad was the coach. We had crushes on each other pretty much right away. For years, at sleepovers with my friends, I was always talking about him. We FINALLY started dating our senior year in high school and on through college. After he, again, FINALLY popped the question, we got married at the ripe old age of 22! Now we've passed our 10 years of marriage mark, surviving years of school/residency, and we're soaking in this new phase of life, getting to spend more time with each other and working to build a meaningful life together with our kids. 

 

Okay, so a few things to help you get to know about me!

 

1. I am a big fan of sunshine. Breathing in the beauty of the earth, being outside. My happy place is anywhere where the sun is touching my skin, wind is in my hair,  preferably exercising or moving my body.

 

2. I'm a creator. My soul craves it. Whether it's little crafts, home reno projects, designing on the computer, photographing families....it brings me fulfillment seeing something come from nothing and knowing I worked to make it happen.

3. Lastly, I love running triathlons. It's a new found joy. It's not so much about the actual race day, but more the training and the joy in working hard, time with friends, developing new skills, and pushing myself to be better....just for me. A mantra I heard in high school that has stuck with me since is, "Each and every day, in each and every way, I am getting better and better." When things get hard, I repeat that, because though hiccups and bumps come along the way, we're always learning and growing from them.Did I mention I'm an optimist?  

Thanks for taking the time to pop into my little online domain.
