I WAS INSPIRED TO START MY BUSINESS WHEN I FINALLY DECIDED TO PURSUE MY DREAM.
When I graduated in 1999, I had no idea what I wanted to do for a career. I just knew I had to get a job. There were so many careers I could have chosen; flight attendant (I even got a small scholarship to attend the hospitality school-I never went). In 2002, while considering which colleges I should attend, I even looked into Art School for Filmmaking. In fact, somewhere amongst my old VHS tapes, you will find one labeled "unfinished project". It was a short film I had made to submit with my application. I never did apply. In 2006, I studied to be a Medical Assistant (because I didn't think being a photographer was an actual job). I did the vocational training for it and worked as one for a short bit in 2007, even did some X-Ray Tech training (because I loved taking pictures and playing with film). I always loved working with cameras more than anything. I carried one on me all the time because I loved capturing memories. It wasn't until after having my first child in 2010, I realized it was all I ever really wanted to do. I had realized my dream and I was ready to pursue it. I launched my photography business in 2014 and have photographed hundreds of couples & families over the years. I had no idea I could make a career out of doing what I love!
I’m a wife, a mom, a believer, a dreamer and a go getter. I have 3 adorable, crazy kiddos, 1 sweet little fur baby and a special needs brother who my husband and I take care of! We moved here to Central Missouri in June 2018; all the way from Washington State. It is quite a change, but I absolutely love it! I love chocolate, music, a good book and binge watching shows on all streaming services. And, I am highly addicted to peppermint mocha. ☕☕
My style is traditional with a little bit of a modern twist. Colors are natural and true to life. No filters here! I work with both studio & natural light to capture timeless, quality portraits you can hang on your wall for years to come. I pride myself on quality service. You deserve the very best service; which is why I take only a limited number of Sessions/Events per month so I can focus all of my attention on each client's needs. You are everything to my business! Without you, I wouldn’t have it. ❤️
I would love to get to know YOU better so let's connect! Thanks for stopping by! I look forward to meeting you!
