Voted 2017 Favorite Kid/Baby Photographer by Des Moines Parent Magazine!
How it all started... Maybe this passion started in 1988 when I was memorized by the magic of my mom's borrowed Polaroid camera. Maybe it was the excitement of picking up one-hour prints to relive our family vacation. Whatever it was, the photography bug bit me hard when I was young and hasn't given me a moment to recover.
Who am I? A Des Moines native with a life-long passion for photography. I live in Windsor Heights with my charming husband, amazing stepdaughter, and three naughty dogs. When we're not shooting or editing photos, you can find us working on DIY home improvement projects, traveling, or enjoying dinner out with friends.
What kind of gear do I use? My gear bag has five Sony bodies, eight lenses, 5 portable/outdoor flashes, studio lighting, and wireless flash triggers. When shooting weddings, you'll find me wearing two cameras, ready to capture every moment!
I never leave home without... Chapstick!
You'll always find me in... ballet flats or flip flops - I don't do heels!
When I'm not working, you can find me... at Target!
I heart... cheap sunglasses, good pizza, dogs, and newborn babies.
Questions? I can't wait to hear them!
