Short and Sweet-

Long and Oversharey-
I’m a dog lover. I have a 22 (ish) lb Beagle named Molly and a 60lb (Mostly hair) Australian Shepherd named Malcolm.
My husband recently retired from the Air Force after 20 years.
Enough about me and my family.
My favorite part of this job is spending time with new people and documenting them as they become comfortable around me and my camera.
My second favorite part is using my creativity to create custom print and album layouts. I really love using your photos to tell a story with clean and timeless designs.
My third favorite part of this job is reliving your story through your photos. Trust me when I say that while I'm editing your images, I'm my own worst critic, even when I know you'll love them in the end because they tell YOUR story!
I love Facebook and update my business page there regularly.
I love that people hire me not because I take pretty pictures, but because I love the people I work with and I love documenting the story of their lives.
My camera system of choice is Canon. I use a 1D Mark III. I believe "take photos. all the time. of everything." is the answer to a lot of questions I get asked. I plan to add a second camera body soon to my collection. I also have several lenses that maximize what I'm capable of shooting, everything from a 100mm macro to a 24-70L series lens. I plan to soon add a 50mm 1.2, a 16-18mm lens for real estate photos, and a 100-400 for weddings. Let me know if you have any questions about my gear!
