About Me

My photo
Wiesbaden, Germany
Welcome! I'm so happy you found me! I use natural light, beautiful souls, silliness, and the unexpected to capture and create art. I'm a graduate from The New York Institute of Photography and have been a enjoying my life as a photographer for 5 years. I'm a wife, I'm a mother, I care too much, and sometimes laugh a little too loudly.. I'm passionate about creating images that provoke great feeling to remind you that the good times make absolutely everything worth it.

Our painted family portrait

The lovely Heather at Audrey Eclectic painted our family portrait. She completely customized it for us with our African sunset, Okie Tshirt, Camera in hand, my favorite flower (orchids) in our hair, and my favorite quote that my husband has written me: "I want forever, not just this life. Because just one life is not as much or as long as I want to love you." You know, that's the kind of thing you get when you marry a spoken word poet. :)

I first saw Heather's work in Arbeat, a publication for Artists that my husband and I own. So, I just had to snag one for our living room. I couldn't help myself. We LOVE our painting and will cherish it for years to come!







Here is the contact info for Heather because I know you are just dying to get one of these for your family. WHO WOULDN'T?
