As long as I can remember, I have held a fascination for photos. I love the idea that both the ordinary and extraordinary moments can be preserved – a tangible memory that you can hold, see, and remember the detail of the time in your mind.
I was born and raised in a small town in Virginia. I left my town to go to college at Christopher Newport University, and again for graduate school at George Mason University, both located in Virginia. I returned to my home town in 2009 to put down roots. Since that time, I have gotten married, and became a mother to two very energetic little boys. Jackson is six years old, and very sweet and curious. Wyatt is three years old, and we like to call him “spirited” ;). He definitely has a wild streak about a mile wide, and we never know what to expect from that one!
Having children has been a true inspiration for me artistically, and I have greatly benefitted from practicing on them regularly. They are both conditioned to be camera-ready, and as they have grown, I have worked hard at honing my skills behind the lens.
I love to capture both the big and small moments in photography, and often find that some of my favorite images are the ones that take place organically, laughter, a hug, or a private moment of contemplation can convey such great feeling and emotion.
