Strong roots make beautiful leaves. My life has been devoted to passing memories on to future generations, both as a music educator and a family photographer. ​ My passion for photography and family history is rooted in the life and influence of my late grandmother. She was the matriarch of our family, yes, but to me she was always the one with the camera, capturing every special moment she could. Birthdays, Christmas, family gatherings, any excuse to pull out the camera and shout "smile!" Only recently after going through tons and tons of her old photos---and I mean old---I realized that she was carrying on the memories of her family before me---my ancestors who I had never met. It has been such a delight to thumb through photos that captured a time I never knew-people I'd only heard of and never seen in pictures-that captured so many special moments, silly or serious, grainy and unfocused or tack-sharp. Holding my family's history in my hands, has been an enlightening and humbling experience at the same time. ​ I have shared those old photos with my husband and two sons, and they now know and understand the care, value and love my grandmother held fast to with her family photos. ​ You and your family deserve that same opportunity. I want to capture those moments and milestones that tell your story, and will serve to pass on the memories of your life, loved ones, and legacy for generations to come. ​ Let's get started!

Not the best, but it's a start! Comet NEOWISE was peeking through the trees last night....still working on adjusting settings/lenses/exposures to get a better catch, but I'm okay with this for now! Let's hope for clear skies tonight!

This beautiful couple invited me into their home for a second maternity session since mama's belly had grown since our first session this past fall, and I just have ALL the feels from these images!!!😍😍😍Not only is this mama so gorgeous, but she also had great ideas for how she envisioned this session. I love when clients come to me with their own creative ideas, it really inspires me to step outside the box and I love making my clients feel amazing. I cannot wait to meet this little girl!!!

So as 2019 comes to a close, I have a huge problem....I have so many favorite moments from so many incredible sessions this year that I can't possibly narrow it down to the cliche 19 or 20 images to match the year. Therefore, take a moment or two to enjoy still just a FEW of my MANY favorites, knowing full well I intend to post more in the coming days as we usher in a bright, hopeful and promising new year! I just can't help myself!

From our family to yours, Merry Christmas everyone!

One of my fave sessions, this brother and sister are so close with each other and got along great! I even asked if that's how they are at home and they said "yes!!" I'm so impressed! And, of course, I couldn't resist getting close up with those eyes and those freckles. 😍😍😍

You all have kept me so busy this fall and I'm so grateful! Thank you for sharing your time and smiles with me. :)

My Story

Strong roots make beautiful leaves.

My life has been devoted to passing memories on to future generations, both as a music educator and a family photographer.

My passion for photography, teaching music and family history is rooted in the life and influence of my late grandmother. She was the matriarch of our family, of course. But to me she was the amazing singer and pianist, who always had the camera ready, capturing every special moment she could. Birthdays, Christmas, family gatherings, any excuse to pull out the camera and shout "smile!"

Only recently after going through tons and tons of her old photos---and I mean old---I realized that she was carrying on the memories of her family before me---my ancestors who I had never met.

It has been such a delight to thumb through photos that captured a time I never knew-people I'd only heard of and never seen in pictures-that captured so many special moments, silly or serious, grainy and unfocused or tack-sharp. Holding my family's history in my hands, has been an enlightening and humbling experience at the same time.

​I have shared those old photos with my husband and two sons, and they now know and understand the care, value and love my grandmother held fast to with her family photos.

You and your family deserve that same opportunity. I want to capture those moments and milestones that tell your story as it’s happening, and will serve to pass on the memories of your life, loved ones, and legacy for generations to come.

Let's get started!
