THE GIRL BEHIND THE LENS

In my life, I have expressed my creative side very differently. It started with excessive amounts of masking tape, construction paper and purple glue sticks. I then moved on to water-color, trombone, ballet, graphic design, and finally, photography.

I focus on High School Seniors, and I can honestly say I have found my passion. My favorite part of senior portrait photography is having the power to change the way seniors think about themselves. My wish for everyone I photograph is they will walk away from their session feeling empowered and confident.

I started my business assuming I wanted to photograph weddings. A year into my business I knew senior portraits had my heart. Seniors' energy, their smiles and personalities are contagious!

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband, two fur-babies and my family. Long walks, road trips and board games are some of my favorite activities. I also love to cook and create my own recipes! My husband is a landscape photographer, and it is so amazing we get to share our passion of photography together. My life is truly blessed, and I would not trade it for anything. 

I'm a redheaded Kansas photographer and big dreamer.
