I am a natural light photographer based in Northern Virginia, I travel throughout the Alexandria, Washington DC, Baltimore areas. I also frequently travel to Saint Louis, Missouri.

Born in Missouri, I moved around most of my life as an Air Force Brat! My family settled in North Dakota where I graduated from High School and then joined the Navy. I served 9 years in the Navy. I was able to travel the world and enjoyed every minute of it!

I have a wonderful husband (who I met while in the Navy and he was in the Army), and two beautiful children. One very spunky red-head and one feisty four year old.

I am a natural light photographer and my photography passion is High School Seniors! I love capturing those last few months before graduation and the fun leading up to that day. It is something about those last few months before a Senior graduates and leaves their home for new adventures that just radiates from within them! Being able to capture their personality is absolutely amazing!

I customize my sessions to my clients, providing professional hair and makeup and individualized style consults. I want to provide my client with the BEST experience possible.

I also enjoy photographing families and couples and love capturing what they do best, enjoying their time with each other!

I am a member of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA). I have been published twice in the Beauty Revived Children’s Magazine (both 2015 and 2016). I am a  Beauty Revived Ambassador. I have also be published in Spirit Magazine a hospital publication.

A few little fun facts about me!

  • I am highly addicted to Starbucks! If I could go there everyday I would (and maybe twice a day too!) And if you follow my Facebook and Instagram feeds…I give a Tall Coffee away sometimes!
  • I love eating raw cake mix…in fact if it weren’t for my little ones, I wouldn’t make the cupcakes, I would just eat the mix…ALL OF IT!
  • I grew up super shy…until High School when I joined the High School Speech and Debate Team where I won the State Championship. My photo hangs in our High School Hallways with all the other State Champions (so embarrassing!)
