Capturing Stories of Heart & Soul

A diamond in the rough is how I see the world. I look through my lens and words come to mind, from each wave that washes ashore to embrace the grains of sand that provides me my sanctuary, to the gurgles and giggles of little angels, to the quiet stolen unseen moment between a bride and her groom as they begin their journey to forever. I believe in each one of us lies dormant untapped possibilities; I believe in every choice we make we can choose to tap into our unlimited possibilities and to see the world as an unlimited source of brilliance I believe in capturing the heart & soul of your story.

While all my sessions are dear to me as I watch love unfold in every session, this Wedding was one in particular very dear to my heart. I chose to photograph my best friends wedding day instead of be a bridesmaid.


I went back and forth between wanting to be part of her special day or capture it. I must say I am very glad I chose to capture her day because I was able to give her something she will cherish for always, her story captured in time.

I am a storyteller. I am an artist. I am a sister, Auntie and doggie mommy to silly Jax. I live to capture stories as they unfold naturally and as they are surrounded by the natural light that dances, twirls and falls just so to help me paint true natural beauty, inside and out. My studio is the world around us, capturing moments, natural smiles, and natural expressions. I will do whatever it takes to capture the very essence of an emotion, whether it is a stolen glance of undying devotion, a ripple of contagious laughter, a blazing sunset, a majestic mountain terrain, or a new days promising sunrise.

This is her story. This is the Story of their Love. Captured.

I have learned that the ultimate happiness in life is to do what makes you smile, because life is a gift. Photography makes me smile. To capture a moment in a photograph that will last a lifetime and beyond is something very rare and special to each individual. Capturing stories is what makes my heart sing. At the end of the day our lives are a compilation of moments past, moments present, and of moments yet to happen. And to encompass them in a photograph enables us to treasure that moment with us forever. It allows us to pass on our life legacy and to pass on insights for generations..

So smile, shine, and tell your {Story} <3
