Let's get to know each other!

Hey, there Senior!

About Me

Let's get to know each other!

My story and approach.

I remember my high school years vividly. I was unsure of many things, but totally sure of one thing; the need to be myself! Although I had great friends, was a cheerleader, gymnast, and involved in many activities, I felt awkward. I was still my mommy's little girl, but also a blossoming young lady with a fierce heart and big dreams. I'm now happily married with a child of my own. I still possess that fierce heart which guides me to capture the most special milestones for amazing seniors, just like you! 

My sessions take place in amazing locations, some you may have never visited in your own hometown! I make sure my clients always come away with a fun, fulfilling experience. Yes, even my senior gentlemen have a blast!

It's always my goal to give you exactly the images you want. I promise I won't make you do awkward poses or peek out from behind a tree. What I will do is make you feel beautiful and special, just like you deserve! The end result will be a fantastic memory and gorgeous images to share!

Parents, I know how you feel. My preteen son is a constant reminder of how time marches on and I don't want a moment to go uncaptured. We are molding the most precious possessions in our world and deserve to have amazing images to document it!
