Thank you for visiting my site! I feel very blessed to have my passion as my career. The philosophy behind my lens is to create lovely images of important moments in an uncomplicated way.

Here's a little (well, maybe a lot) about me:
-My favorite colors are any shade of gray and aqua.
-I am low maintenance girlie: I love makeup and nail polish but I'm not a shop-a-holic. I'd rather shop for you than for myself.
-I've run 2 50-mile trail marathons and a handful of other ultra races.
-I'm a certified open water diver. I'm terrified of sharks.
-I'm a Pisces, down to the letter.
-I love love love music! It's on nearly all the time in my world.

-Chico will always hold a special place in my heart.
-I love people in love and capturing that emotion on digital 'film.'
-I adore miniature schnauzers and stray kitties.
-My favorite candy is lemon heads.
-I like red vines and sugar free rock stars. Together. Yes I know it's weird.

-I worked for 2 bio tech, 1 healthcare company and 1 home builder in my corporate career. I felt the most fulfilled working for a company that served to benefit others.
