I’m a lifestyle photographer based in Asheville, North Carolina, who specializes in family, maternity, newborn, and senior photography.
I've encouraged tickle fights and squishy hugs for over six hundred families. My people are fun, down-to-earth and find joy in motherhood, all the while keeping it real with a little humor, and even a cuss word or two.
I have been a photographer, graphic artist, marketing specialist, and art teacher for over 25 years. But at this phase in my life, I am completely focused on bringing joy to families by capturing their essence in photographs. I'm obsessed with creating love-filled family photography!
I'm a single mom with two wonderful, energetic teenagers. I adopted my children from Russia when they were one and two years old. I love our adoption story, but I carry a small sadness because I don't have a single photo of my children as newborns and babies.
There are no photographs of their tiny little feet and toes, or of me holding them swaddled in receiving blankets. There are no pictures of them growing in my belly. I didn’t have this opportunity. BUT YOU DO! I want to help you capture your child's story, because I know what it means not to have those precious memories saved as photographed.
Becoming a mother changed my life in so many ways. Not only did I fall in love with two beautiful kids, but I also found myself falling in love with photographing children and families.
Once I had my own children, I came to understand in a whole new way the love that a parent feels for his or her child. I suddenly understood how quickly children grow up and how meaningful it is to document the stages of their lives and their uniqueness.
