I live in Lancaster City with the sweetest husband Jonathan, and my two rambunctious children, Ezra and Daisy. Family is everything to me and is the heart and motivation behind my work. I love being a mom and I try to be intentional about savoring precious moments with them that I know are passing me by too quickly.
I like to make others laugh and bring some sunshine and fun to my sessions. I am happiest when creating something with my hands and although photography has always been that main outlet for me, I also enjoy making pottery, floral arranging and gardening, and baking sourdough bread.
My style is a mix between photojournalism and fine art photography. Instead of posing (which I still do to some extent) I aim to deliver beautiful, artistic portraits while capturing real emotions by creating a relaxing environment and prompting clients to interact with their partner or with me. I’ll take authentic emotional looks toward each other and laughter over cheesing at the camera any day. I want my clients to look at their photos afterwards and say “man, she got us.”
While this is my art, I pursue this career for the people. I have been photographing families since 2010 and so many of my clients have become my friends. While there is a lot of joy that comes from creating images from start to finish while seeing my visions realized, the true joy comes from getting to hang out with lots of fun people while I take their photos and getting to hear their reactions once I deliver the images. I am truly thankful for all of those that have made it possible to make this my profession.

Pride and Prejudice, (the 2005 version), Dan in Real Life, and About Time. Also, I love all space movies. (Arrival, Gravity, Interstellar, etc.)
I'm all about anything light, fruity, and vanilla vs. rich, chocolate, and decadent.
It’s a tie between Switzerland and Hawaii. Both are gorgeous in completely different ways.
There is a part of my soul that comes alive every spring! Plus, the garden prep makes it an exciting time.
