Mother, goal-oriented, ambitious entrepreneur.




First, I am a proud mother.
Becoming a mom has allowed my heart to grow into what it is today. My son, Carson, has taught me how to love bigger and laugh harder; I am a better version of myself because of him.
And this amazing career would have never begun if it weren't for him. What started as lifestyle photographs and yearly birthday portrait sessions has turned into a full time career that allows me to capture real love and be a stay at home mom all in one!

I wish I could say that photography was in my list of potential careers but it honestly wasn't. I had always been creative; painting, drawing, and making ceramic pots. Those things are fun but when I first picked up a camera I felt an instant connection and understanding to capturing light and documenting true emotion. I will never forget the first wedding I photographed in 2012 and how it filled my heart with joy. I fell in love with photographing love stories and bringing that joy into the hearts of my couples and their families. 
I am so very thankful that I have such a positive career, and that I can capture one of the happiest times of my couples lives. 




The happiest day of my life.


My Favorites

First look into my cravings, obsessions, and what I'm passionate about...


My goal is to visit this entire world...


I've always known I wanted to be a mother but after having my son, Carson, I never thought I could love someone this much. He has been the biggest blessing in my life and I would never go back to the life I had without him. Every day is a new adventure and I could not be more proud of who he is growing up to be. Carson is so kind and loving he really has made this mommy thing way too easy. Now, being 8, this kid is busy busy. He has sports all year round and we are starting to see the dedication and ambition he has to be great!




These items are just some essentials to my every day life.

My perfect coffee is either making me sweat from hot flashes or it's upsetting my stomach from all the sugar that I poured into it! It's embarrassing going to a Starbucks. Do you want coffee with your sugar?

Every new year I get so excited because I get to search countless hours on the web for a weekly planner that is prettier than the last. (Shh... I may have thrown one or three away because I messed up writing in it)

My favorite scents are apple cinnamon or pumpkin spice. How original right? I know! (insert huge eye roll here). If I want to eat it, I will buy it!

I can't keep a plant alive to save my life, so trading out different floral arrangements is right up my alley. Peony's and Tulips are at the top of my list.

I have more shoes than I need, I can admit. Some are still in their boxes. 
Let's just say JustFab is a gold mine! Let me know if you want to sign up! I get points for that!

I mainly love to use water color but I plan to try other techniques if I ever find the time. Oh! And it's the weirdest thing, I cannot paint unless its late at night! I must rush during the day because when it's after midnight I can paint almost anything.

You name it, I have most likely watched it! I will Netflix binge while I edit all the time. I enjoy all genres as well, so that just made my list a whole lot longer.

I cannot get enough of Sushi! Sakura & Fusian are the best places I have found. Seriously, so delicious! If I could eat it three times a day, I would!

ring dishes

Those cute little saucers that hold rings and other small jewelry pieces... yeah I have 4 of them... and they are empty! They are just so cute I started collecting them.

I fell hard for traveling in 2015 when I booked my first New York wedding. Every since that date I have not stopped wandering. Ohio is my home but my heart is on the road.
