Why Hello There

The Gal behind the camera

I'm a Wife, Momma, Believer, Dream-Seeker, Actress, Foodie, Word-Artist & Memory-Catcher (or as you may call it- a photographer), blessed to be able to do what I love for a living. I think a genuine smile can change someone’s day, believe in small acts of kindness, and fairy tales. Life is meant to be lived with purpose & I do my best to live each day with that in mind!

When I'm not behind the camera I'm usually:

-Chasing around my toddler
-Saving stray animals
-Eating way too much dark chocolate
-Binge watching a new show with my super cool hubby
-Sipping on some liquid caffeine (or wine depending time)
-Singing my heart out in the car
-Watching all things Disney & Food Network
-Cooking or Baking my little heart out
-Daydreaming about the beach or Europe
-Snuggling up with a book or journal
-Refinishing Furniture
-Exploring the Outdoors

Or, let's face it... catching up on dreaded laundry... because even this OCD gal has a crutch! 

 

My interest in photography started young thanks to my Grandpa Dave. It didn’t matter the day or the occasion, he was always taking pictures. Although I wasn’t always the most cooperative “model”, I am so grateful for the countless memories he captured throughout my childhood. Thanks to Gramps my initial interest grew & in Highschool I became the yearbook photographer & editor, but it wasn’t until 9 years later that I’d pick it up again.

Originally a Houston, Texas native, I ventured out west to Sunny San Diego, where I met my amazing husband and lived for four years while he finished his Military enlistment (FLY NAVY!). When I became pregnant, I decided that I didn’t want to miss my son’s childhood and decided to get serious about photography again. We moved back to our home state of Texas in 2014, had our first child, and I began working towards a career in photography.

Although my little family consists of me, my husband, son, two dogs & a cat- my big family consists of three dads, three moms, four brothers, and three sisters! Talk about a big family! Now that you know a little bit about me and my crazy life, I’d love to get to know you and your story!
