I've never known a time when I wasn't creating.  I remember being a child and sketching everything I saw from cartoons to landscapes.  I used poetry to help me when I started becoming depressed as a pre-teen.  And I discovered photography after having my first child and immediately fell in love.  I feel connected to the world when I am creating.  I love to connect with other people and be able to share a part of their story and their lives.  Another passion of mine is helping others.  I am an open book and try to help other's achieve their goals and dreams.  I'm a firm believer in building each other up instead of tearing each other down.  


I am never too far from a notebook.  I love my husband and children.  I love to travel and discover new places. I love to cook and make up new recipes or re-invent old ones. I love to snack on fruits and vegetables. I enjoy a good coffee.  I love the colors of the world. I enjoy real moments more than staged moments, but I appreciate a nice family portrait.


My favorite place is my home, snuggled up on the couch with my two kids.  Sipping hot cocoa and watching a fun movie like "Home Alone" or "Wreck-it Ralph". I also love to travel, especially exploring the beautiful places in nature.  I enjoy going on a hike and ending up on top of the world.  There is nothing more beautiful.
