Hello and Welcome!
To begin with, thank you for visiting my site!
There are a lot of photographers in the Raleigh-Durham area, so it means a lot that you’ve taken an interest in my work. I strive to give my clients the best, and I’m so excited to get the opportunity to do the same for you.
A little background on me:
I’m originally from Arizona, but I’ve been on the east coast since 1997. I love North Carolina and am proud to call it home! From the mountains in the Western areas to our beautiful beaches on the coast, North Carolina has everything my heart desires!
I have a wonderful husband of almost 20 years and two fantastic children. I’m a strong believer in family, and making marriages work. That’s one of the many reasons I love shooting weddings. To be there the moment a family is started, it’s just priceless!
Not only am I a professional photographer, I am also a seasoned ICU RN. This extensive education, knowledge and background make me very comfortable during birth sessions and newborn sessions. I am also completely up to date on all vaccinations, including a yearly flu shot. Your family’s health, especially your newest members of your family, is my top priority!
I am an avid mud runner. Yes, I climb, crawl, roll, and jump into mud on purpose. It’s so much fun! Ever want a good laugh I’ll invite you to come watch!
A little information on my sessions/photography style:
My love for photography spans back to my high school years as a sports and yearbook photographer. I spent many an hour sitting in darkrooms developing images, rolling my own film, learning the craft. Since those days (many, many moons ago) I have always carried a camera wherever I go, capturing moments in life as I see them happening. There is no comparison to seeing the joy in my clients faces when I deliver their images. Those moments of happiness and joy are the reason I do this. My goal is to make your moment special. To capture the memories for you and your loved ones. To show you your true beauty.
Although I have all the tools for indoor portrait work (lighting, etc), I prefer natural backgrounds and natural light for most sessions. I offer an extensive list of fun and beautiful places to hold your session. You have somewhere else in mind? Awesome! We love new sites! Want to get a little crazy and shoot from a lake or river? I’m there, right in it with you! The sky’s the limit! (Literally…no sky diving sessions, I’ve got a thing about heights!).
I love spontaneous, real sessions. Yes, I will pose you, lead you, and guide you, but I will strive to show the real you during your session. I will get you giggling and playing with your family. Those are the shots you will love! You will see your true beauty, your gorgeous smile, and your eyes twinkling.
So, are you ready to talk? Let’s have a conversation (phone, email, text, in person, etc) and start planning your perfect session!
I love what I do, I love making my clients happy, and I can’t wait to meet you! Head on over to our contact page and send me a message!
