After having to take a year off due to my son’s health and my own health, I AM BACK and am feeling inspired to continue my passion with photography. Whether it is photographing my own kids, the beauty within nature, or getting back to working with families, I am grateful to have my camera back in my hands and sharing my work with the world again.

I became connected to the art of photography in high school when I was going through changes in my life. Spasmodic Dysphonia took over my voice and I had to find another outlet to express myself. My brother taught me the basics of photography and ever since I became more aware of my surroundings. I was eager to capture EVERYTHING through the lens of my camera.

As a mother of two AMAZING kids, Daniela who is 4 and Nico who is 2, it is sometimes hard to find time to keep the inspiration going…but I am hopeful ;)

With love and gratitude,



Recap 2016

Dear 2016,

You have been hard, the biggest challenge of my LIFE, but you have also been a blessing. This year brought me my son, Nicolas, it brought me answers to my health, and it also brought me so many wonderful photo sessions. I say this every year, but I TRULY mean it when I say this, "I am so lucky to be able to be a stay-at-home-mom AND continue working on my passion - my photography." Yes, this year may have been a lot slower because of my Dystonia and yes I had to turn down many clients, but every chance I had to pick up my camera and photograph another family was filled with such a sense of JOY and pure BLISS. Thank you for every single person in my life. I am incredibly grateful for your endless support and love.

2017, I am ready for YOU! I am ready for a year filled with accomplishments, for more answers, for more joy, and more photo sessions with my wonderful clients! 

Recap of 2015

Every year I am in awe of all that I gain from each photo session. Whether it's a wedding, a newborn session, or a family session, there is ALWAYS something that I learn about life and myself. 2015 has been filled with so much joy and a few surprises. In June, we found out that we were expecting our second baby. We have been blessed with our daughter, Daniela, and now we are waiting to meet our son in just 2 short weeks. (Or sooner, if he decides to come earlier.) My fall season was cut short because of a neck injury and was unable to take on quite a few sessions, but I had to put my baby and pregnancy first and rest as much as possible. My dear clients were so understanding, and for that, I am forever grateful. I'm reminded how lucky I truly am to have such a gratifying job where I can work with such wonderful families. To those families, Thank You! I am so thankful for your support and love.

2016, we are ready for you! I am excited to work with more families and capture more memories.

Javier Sebastian Diego

Seeing how a newborn baby can create so much harmony and love between a family and being able to capture these moments, truly fills my heart with so much gratitude and joy. Javier Sebastian Diego came to the world on February 10, 2015. Big brother, August, is pretty excited to have this new role in the family. 

The Joyner Family

Oh newborn sessions...they are one of my favorite sessions to document.I feel so lucky and privileged to be capturing these precious moments.These photo sessions always remind me to cherish every single second with my daughter because they grow and change way too fast. 

Alana (owner of ABJ Photography) and David brought their son, Will, to the world  in December. They wanted to savor these last few days in their first home before they move  into their new house to start new memories with their sweet family. 

The Schueler Family

There are certain people that impact your life in so many ways…this family is one of them. The beautiful Schueler family have taught me so much throughout the 5 years that I’ve known them. Heather, Chris, and their girls are truly special people. Each of them carry a unique personality and have spark for life. They all have given me so much joy and love…for that I am forever grateful. 

Season of Gratitude + A Sweet Family Season

For me, Thanksgiving is a time for family, a time to reflect on our life, a time to give thanks, and a time to count our blessings. I wanted to take a moment and thank everyone who I have encountered this year. Thank you for inspiring me in every way possible, even if it was a small gesture like a smile. I am so grateful for every moment I have experienced…even the bad moments. Thank you to my amazing, wonderful, and loving clients. I feel so lucky to have captured a moment in your life. Thank you to my family and caring husband…without you, I would not be the person who I am today. Your endless love and support fills my heart with pure joy. This sweet family session has a place in my heart. I have been lucky enough to capture the most important moments of their lives together. For this, I am so grateful. When they asked me to photograph their first family portrait, I instantly smiled and said OF COURSE! :)


The Brown Family

This beautiful family simply makes my heart melt! I've had the privilege to photograph this couple's love story…first with their Engagement, their Maternity, Elijah's newborn photos, Elijah at 6-months, and now they are pregnant with their second child! The four of us spent Sunday afternoon enjoying the first weekend of  the summer at a beautiful park called McDaniel Farm Park... a hidden gem, tucked away in plain sight. As they walked through the trails and discovered the barns, I followed along capturing the "in-between moments"…the laughter, and the love they have for each other.
