I'm so glad you stopped by and hope you are enjoying your visit to my website! Photography is a passion turned career for me that began in high school photography class. Seven years ago, after my first daughter was born and I realized how precious freezing moments of laugher, love, and life in beautiful photos truly is, I decided it was time to turn it into more than just a passion and hobby for myself, and extend the gift of photo keepsakes to others through this business! It is truly my honor to photograph your loved ones and capture a memory that will last forever.
As you probably have noticed in my portfolio, my photos are mainly taken outdoors in the beauty that surrounds us! I love natural light-the golden hour is my FAVORITE time to take photos...but I also am happy to come to your home and photograph you in your environment. I do have a portable studio for formal shots, school photos, or for newborn photos as well. I love getting to know you and hearing your ideas during sessions so that the images truly reflect you, your family, and your life.
So, a little bit about me..
I love people, children, puppies, music, and chocolate! I have a zeal for LIFE, and LAUGHTER, and LOVE!! In my house there is a lot of noise!! Mostly silliness, singing, and dancing (ok...total honestly, sometimes screaming too!) as there are 6 people (5 of which are female...even the dog!). I am married to an outstanding man, who also is a Veterinarian (and part time 2nd photographer..who is amazingly talented!) and we have 4 daughters ranging from ages 11-2. Our newest addition to our family is our eldest daughter whom we adopted from Ethiopia. Adoption is very near and dear to our hearts and you can read more about our adoption story here www.relentlesslove-ouradoptionjourney.blogspot.com. And finally, I love JESUS!! He has abundantly blessed my life and my hope in Him is the only reason that I can "shine" no matter what circumstances I'm facing! The name of my photography business was inspired by the verse "Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven!" Matthew 5:16. My hope is that my life is a reflection of Jesus in me and that I can share his love and goodness with others in all that I do. In order to do that, a portion of my proceeds will be donated to various ministries and charities each year.
Thanks again for stopping by and I hope we get to meet each other soon!
