Photography is not just a hobby for me or a means of earning a living. It’s a way of preserving memories and sharing experiences, an art form that should be celebrated. Photography is a way to capture a moment in time. I have had a love for photography for as long as I can remember. Since a child I was delighted in how a moment can be captured through the lens of a camera, and how time stands still within the frame of a photograph. Two of my great passions in life are family and photography.

As a Navy wife and mother of two, I understand just how crucial it is to document the lives of the people you love. Military deployments are grievous, and unfortunately, the deployed parent misses many milestones in their loved one’s lives. My goals, both personally and professionally, are to document those moments, so that no parent serving our country away from home will miss an important part of their family’s lives. Those moments are just as, if not more, important as the ones before and after a service member’s deployment.

Experiences in the past and an intrigued mind have lead me to speak with other photographers that I’ve admired. I’ve gained incredible knowledge which has allowed me to further my photography qualifications. The images in my mind slowly came into fruition, and before long, friends and acquaintances began to take notice of my creativity and passion. I have had the experience of working with a wide variety of people from all walks of life. As a friendly and approachable female photographer, I find I work especially well with children. However, I pride myself on my versatility and I am yet to find a subject that has failed to inspire and excite.
