I’m excited to share with you a little about me and the heart behind what I do.  I’m a wife, mother, sister, daughter, teacher, aunt, and friend.  My family and friends mean the world to me.  My husband and I have two incredible little girls.  When our little ones were born, I found myself constantly reaching for the camera.  I fell in love with capturing the sweet moments, and the tiny details of our family.  I soon realized the importance of preserving our family’s story, and began to understand how quickly life goes by.  I wanted to be able to give the gift of creating stories of love to others, as well.

I believe in capturing beauty in simple ways.  There’s nothing better than an authentic smile or a giggle.  I often think to myself, “Wow, how I wish I could freeze this moment; this feeling.” That is what I hope to do for others.

Before becoming a mother and photographer, I pursued a career in education; another passion of mine.  I taught first grade in Fairfax County for several years. I have a magnetic connection to children of all ages, and I feel that it has prepared me to be able to truly connect with families and see them for who they are.  That inspires me to envision and create their story.

With the collaboration of your vision and mine, I hope to capture timeless memories that last a lifetime.  Please feel free to give me a ring or send me a message.  I hope to hear from you.
