Photography became my language to communicate to the world over 20 years ago. As a young girl, I peered into the glass case at our local drug store, eyeing the cameras displayed in front of me. Thankfully, my parents invested in the fascination I had at 10 years old. Learning on 35mm film wasn't easy, but it was rewarding. I was intrigued and drawn to documenting the life and beauty I saw before me. The darkroom provided the freedom to develop and bring my images to life. The process from capturing to developing film brought such joy that it became a lifelong passion. It provided the foundation for my professional growth. 

After switching to digital, I still miss the excitement of the darkroom, but my passion for documenting has only grown. This is a joy in my life. The beauty God has created screams from every corner of this world, and my desire is to honor His creation by capturing and sharing it.  

Today, my main focal areas are lifestyle, portrait, birth, and destination photography.

Be Bold. Be You. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to capture it.
