You'll figure out quick that I am just a regular gal and am not good at self promotion, or at taking selfies (but this is me in Paris doing my best, haha, because PARIS!).  I have lots of creative energy though, and luckily my lack of selfie taking skills doesn't mean I can't take a great picture of you! 

In my 12 years of full time shooting, I have learned lots of things... Details matter.  Flattering poses matters.  Candid shots matter too.  Capturing connections matters.  Good light matters.  Helping you get your photos printed also matters!   I have also seen lots of styles come and go so I am passionate about keeping your photos modern yet timeless.  Let's face it, classic is never regrettable (as a child of the 80's, I can say that with passion).

I am a hands on fixer, am patient, detail oriented, and try to make sessions and weddings fun and organized and as magical as they should be!  I love people and I want to keep all of my clients as friends too so my goal is to make our time together a great experience.  I have an awesome team working with me and am lucky to work with so many amazing vendors as well.  I am truly obsessed with photography and can't imagine doing anything else.

Portrait and wedding photography going hand in hand for me. Photographing individuals and families has given me lots of experience posing and prompting, capturing genuine emotion and connection, and crowd control ;).  My experience photographing weddings has given me the value of story telling, attention to detail and organization and the importance of capturing how the day felt not just looked.  I love people and life and all of it's journeys, so you'll see a whole lot of everything here.

In my spare time (what is that?!)...I am obsessed with my family, cooking or finding good food, travel and dreaming of the next adventure, home improvement, filling my Amazon dream cart, trips to Target, gardening and plants (lots of plants!), our dog and all animals, really. I am not a super moderate person by nature and I love to laugh a lot (and probably too loudly) and we watch a lot of Shark Week. I am a right and left brained person (rare), but I can't wink or whistle (what the heck?!). I like to keep things real. I'm also a proud Arizona native.

I can't wait to get to know you, too!

Yes!  I am based out of Queen Creek, Arizona, but definitely willing to travel.  I love seeing the world.
Contact me to make arrangements.

I shoot with full frame Nikon 850 and 810 bodies and the highest quality lenses  I also use off camera flash as needed in
low-light situations.  I also shoot with medium format Pentax and 35mm film cameras.
Images are backed up in camera on two different memory cards while shooting, and then
backed up immediately when downloaded to my computer for editing.

While I do have video capabilities, I currently do not offer these services.


Yes, I consistently work with some really amazing photographers who share my same style.  Second shooters are
included in specific wedding packages or as needed.

Once final images are ready for delivery, you will receive a private download link and password with access to
