As a photographer, I provide so much more than just gorgeous photos. I’m passionate about capturing the real, honest moments of your story, but I’m equally as passionate about the genuine connections I build with each of my clients. Those connections that turn into friendships. It’s the smiles we share, the laughter we make, the stories we share, the awkward moments we embrace. My goal is to not only give you images that you love, but also help you remember how you felt in the moment they were captured.
I WENT FROM SLINGING LATTES TO CAPTURING LOVE STORIES FOR SERIOUSLY IN LOVE COUPLES
When I was 30 and left my manager job at Starbucks to focus on doing photography, I had no clue where it would take me! All I knew was I was stuck in a rut at a job that sucked the joy out of my life. I enjoyed the process of crafting signature coffees and the connections I had with my customers, but I had that quintessential experience of getting a new boss who was terrible. Like...TERRIBLE, terrible. So with my husband's support, I went from serving coffee to shooting weddings full-time and have never looked back!
So nowadays you'll find me spending my time working in my home office, a cup of coffee at my elbow, putting together a list of new home improvement projects for my hubby to complete, snuggling with my two kiddos, Jackson and Harper, or crafting a genuine, fun wedding experience for my sweet client friends.
