First, I am a proud single mother.
Becoming a mom has allowed my heart to grow into what it is today. My son, Carson, has taught me how to love more 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 memories 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.
I have grown my business since and now I photograph all kinds of portraits. This isn't a job. Photography is my life and I love every second of it.
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 10, 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!

I fell hard for traveling in 2015 when I booked my first New York wedding. I traveled there alone and explored as much as I could. I was so excited!! Ever since that date I have not stopped wandering. Ohio is my home but my heart is on the road.
Although I haven't been outside the US here are my favorite places and the top locations on my to-visit list.
