Now that all of that’s out of the way- read about the “real” me below!! 🙂


What to know about me?

 – I graduated from Marshall University and was previously an elementary school teacher. My love of children and families led to my decision to pursue photography full-time.

– I am SO not a morning person. At all.  I probably complain more than my children.

– I am a huge Marshall fan! In the fall you’ll find me decked out in Kelly green and white and tailgating with friends and family. H-E-R-D  LET’S GO HERD!

– I am totally goofy and love to laugh. I will be a clown during your session because I want genuine smiles from you and your children.

– I am OBSESSED with newborn babies.  Those days pass by SO quickly and I wish so deeply that I would have had newborn images taken of my own girls. I promise you will love the ones I take of your precious little one!

-I need coffee to function.  Ever seen those mugs with the measuring lines on them that say something like “wait- not yet- now you may speak” as they go down the side? They made those for people like me!

-I love to travel and am constantly scheming up reasons why we need to go on trips!  My girls and I have a serious case of Wanderlust. 🙂

 – My family is my whole world– I have an amazing husband and 2 beautiful children. Their support is unwavering and I am beyond blessed to have them in my life.
