I thought I knew how special photos were when I became a photographer, but it took losing someone special in my life to truly realize the importance. I can count on my own hands the number of photographs I have of my family as a child. Photos were a luxury that we could never afford and I cherish them so dearly. It’s important that we preserve our history, our moments, our legacy. I gladly pour my heart into all my work so that you can cherish tangible items that will ignite love, joy, and happiness for so many years to come.
Anyone that knows me at all knows my obsession with shoes and jumpsuits. I love choosing just one thing to wear and shoes...always fit!
SHOES + JUMPSUITS
My world changed when I met my husband, and then it exploded when my son arrived. They are my whole world and my whole heart.

True story. I graduated with a Finance Degree and MBA + spent 12 years in the army national guard. My life was NOT how I imagined it would be. So I made the switch and have loved it ever since.

My husband and I have both been twice and cannot get enough of it. From the epic views and freeing feeling of just being just a magical place...gosh...I cannot even explain it. If I could, I'd build a home right at the edge of a fjord and retire out there!!

One would think so as some of my absolute favorite things come from London. Okay...maybe not "from" London, but I love High Tea and Afternoon Tea and only think of London when I think of that. Plus, Jimmy Choo....FAVORITE shoe designer and Burberry. Both in London!

As I was getting ready to board a plane to Thailand...my father fell ill and I made the quick decision to forego my plane at the terminal and rush home. Luckily...I did. My father passed only a week after that. I will always remember Thailand for this and will look forward to seeing it someday in memory of him.
So....my husband is a huge fan or "Always Sunny in Philadelphia". In one of the episodes, they go to find a "junkyard" dog and end up with a cat that supposedly born in a puddle of gasoline...making him "indestructible". Hence, on the show, they named him Agent Jack Bauer and so did we:) But our Stanley, calls him "KIT"...short for Kitty.

So...I actually LOVE all of them. The Office I can watch on repeat over and over again. Game of Thrones...Arya Stark?! Favorite person on TV ever! Supernatural -- guilty pleasure, lol. And then, Breaking Bad? I had a love/hate relationship with Breaking Bad, but ultimately, I loved the show and am actually pleased with how it ended.
