Thanks for stopping by my little part of the internet. I'm so happy to have you here getting a little glimpse into what I love to do and who I am.
I'm 60% Dreamer & 40% Doer. Always with my head in the clouds and my feet a few inches off the ground. There's very little black and white and my world...but a whole lot of every other hue which means endless possibilities. I believe that we can do big things and I believe that we can do them together!
Professionally I am photographer & content creator for other creatives, bloggers, & business owners. It's so much fun watching someone else's brand come to light with beautiful imagery! It's amazing creating images for others that truly show them as the beautiful people they are.
On any given day you'll find me hanging out with the cutest dog in the world, Francois the French Bulldog (who has his very own Instagram), 5 cats, and fiance all while I obsess over my Instagram, new business ideas, and all the new pretty pictures to take. I am a sometimes brash, often sarcastic woman with a passion for an authentic life.
I make images of life. My life. Your life. The lives of those I love. The lives of those who step in front of my camera. I adore people in love. I am a romantic at heart and a believer in the power of the human spirit. I love all things beautiful. I love the seemingly unbeautiful moments as well for they teach us to find the beauty that is always there. And oh how I love finding the beauty...with my camera.
I'm obsessed with this cute guy!!! My fiance too of course ;) Although he says that he's a distant second. LOL!!
Other loves - all things bright & cheerful, great design (especially anything mid century), travel, fashion that makes me feel fabulous (although I also love me some yoga pants), COFFEE with cinammon, trying new restaurants, exploring this amazing city of ours.
At 44 years old I can now say that I am finally comfortable in my own skin.
I don't feel 44. I feel younger but wiser. Heavier in weight than I have ever been but more beautiful and full of life than ever. I can confidently say that I like who I am.
I grew up on a dairy farm. I am from Michigan. That makes me the mid-western farmer's daughter. Bonus points - I also know how to milk cows.
I will stop what I'm doing to rescue an animal. Or take a picture of one. Or take a picture with one! Those animal selfies are always the best.
I'm the co-founder of WEAR RVA - a charity fashion show featuring RVA high school girls as models and benefiting The Network of Enterprising Women's high school scholarship fund.
I believe that all women are beautiful. I believe in equality. I believe in creating a judgment free zone around me.
I'm on a mission to build the most awesome girl squad ever! Girl Power! And please...no mean girls here.
I am very pro-selfie. You should selfie it up too.
