Storytelling Documentary Photographer

I ALWAYS had a point-and-shoot camera ... ever since high school yearbook club.  I photographed pretty much everything that was going on in my life, every single month.  I didn't realize it back then, but for decades now, I've been documenting and telling my own story through my photos.  When I picked up my first DSLR, there was no turning back. 


I am a wife, mother of two silly and rambunctious boys, cardiac ICU nurse by day, and photographer by night. 


I have a few addictions - chocolate, nutella, ice cream, tiramisu. I always save room for dessert. I can drink 3 cups of coffee in one day and still fall asleep.  Malbecs are my absolute favorite.  I love dancing to old school 90's hip hop with my boys, or by myself.


 I live in the present moment.  I can spot a cheesy, sometimes corny moment a mile away which probably explains why my most favorite sessions are chaotic, noisy, messy, real life untouched, raw, no stiff poses, no matching clothes... through my lens, let me tell your story.
