be weird. be brave. be intentional.
because what do you really have to lose anyways? 

If you like sing alongs + basically having your own concert in the car, going on spontaneous trips to Marshall's with little to no notice, hanging out with furry four legged friends, eating all the cookie dough out of the ice cream bowl + crying your eyes out to a good chick flic, then I'm your girl!

I take a lot of pride in the person I've grown to be. Having a servants heart and mind that loves to create is something I've always admired about myself. These qualities have led me into one of the most rewarding professions I could possibly be in!

Hey, it's your girl

a friend you'll have for life

I want to be remembered for making people smile. For building genuine connections and making those around me feel loved. For lending a helping hand and for just being that girl that people have a really good time around! That’s what’s really important to me in this life.

Things that make my heart go boom boom boom

movie nights, pizza dates, couch cuddles, long conversations, comedy junkies, music lovers

My hubs. I feel like that's all I really need to say, haha. This man knows me better than I know myself, I swear it. He's been my best friend & solid ground for years and every day we grow more and more in love with each other. He makes me belly laugh, challenges me in the best ways and absolutely and completely adores me and that's all I really want in life. In him I have found a built in bestie for life, someone who gets excited over having Chipotle for dinner, even if it's the second night in a row. He doesn't hesitate when I want to build a makeshift movie theatre in our living room to binge watch our faves on tv and he always goes along with my wild ideas without once doubting I can't make it happen. This man has my whole heart and more and I'd be absolutely mad without him. Watching him become a daddy to our sweet babies has been the biggest blessing and the greatest treat!


I don't know about you, but there's something so refreshing about discovery. Sometimes you've just gotta get out and explore, whether that's in your own neck of the woods or far far away - I love going to new places and experiencing the beauty of somewhere unknown. It's an even better time when I get to bring the hubs and our two fur babes along for the adventure! And you already know that I'll be heavily documenting all the things that happen during our travels, drawing inspiration from every place, person and thing I come across. I can't wait to see where we end up next, and even better that all future trips will be taken with our children, Cai and Calvin! It's going to be so exciting experiencing the world through their little hearts!


Ohhhhh, Max + Stella. My big precious babes - where would I be in life if I didn't have these two wiggle butts to spend my time with every day?! I don't ever want to know the answer to that one. These two keep us busy that's for sure - they expect lots of love and attention and they deserve nothing less! If there's a beach day, they come with. If we go hiking, they're climbing rocks right alongside us. If we wanna sit and watch movies all night, they're the best ones to cuddle while doing it. These guys are our biggest blessing and our best buddies all in one and even though Stella farts like a man and Max whines like a hyena I still wouldn't have them any other way. They are the best big brother and sister to our little babies and they're so lucky to have them to grow up with!

Our sweet babies, Cai + Calvin. We spent a long time trying to get pregnant. Years of fertility treatments, doctors appointments and lots of prayer. We finally got pregnant naturally. God had a plan for us and He knew when we would be ready long before we did. We've now welcomed two beautiful babies into our family and our hearts couldn't be more full. The overpour of pure love I felt in those first moments of meeting them both for the first time and still do all this time later. It hit me like a wave that wrapped it's warmth around me, a love I've never known. That feeling grows stronger and stronger with each passing day, with every smile and milestone from our little ones. The hubby and I are over the moon to know and love our babies! They are our biggest blessing and our reason why we strive for everything we do!

If there's anything I've learned in life it's to enjoy it. Like seriously enjoy it. Embrace love every chance you get, laugh more, pray more and eat all of the cookie dough. You really have no idea how quickly things can change and life is pretty damn unexpected sometimes.

Back in May 2017 my mom was in a horrible motorcycle accident. She was thrown off of the back of a motorcycle and run over by a pickup truck. Unresponsive, she was immediately rushed to Shock Trauma. She spent 15 daunting days in the hospital before she could be released and I never missed a day with her. I washed her hair, helped her change her clothes, did her makeup and did everything in my power to make her feel loved.

One broken clavicle, four broken ribs, a broken spine, one collapsed lung and three surgeries later, she was released. I realized in those moments of caring for her how close we came to losing her. The thought absolutely tore me apart.

I realized I had all of these beautiful memories with my mom but hardly any photos to show for it.  My mom very quickly became my 'Why' and I didn't realize it until every time our family was together they knew my camera was going to be with me and everything was going to be documented. 

The connection I feel with each of my clients is on a much deeper level now. I know now from my own personal heartaches and experiences just how important photos are. 

Why do I feel that capturing moments are so important?
