When I was 7, I fell in love. I don’t know if it was the shiny black case, the bright red button, or the magic of the square photos that developed right before my eyes, but my mom’s Polaroid camera was basically my first crush – and I’ve been inspired by photography ever since. My love for this craft led me to graduate cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in photography from Kent State University. After graduating and moving with my husband to San Diego, I discovered a few other things that inspired me, too: real people, new places, and capturing moments of beauty whenever I could. It was there that I started my business photographing weddings, and after more than 10 years, I’m still doing the things that inspire me most.
Today, I live in Carolina Beach, North Carolina, with my husband and my other sources of inspiration – my two children. I offer not only wedding photography, but portrait photography, family photography, and boudoir photography, too. I specialize in a candid and photojournalistic approach and in taking photos that help you relive a beautiful moment again and again. If you are looking for a photographer with years of experience, someone who truly knows her craft, and someone with a trained eye who loves playing with light to create unique and timeless images, please get in touch. I'd love to make some beautiful photos with you.
