I am a born and raised Alaskan. I grew up on the Kenai Peninsula and moved to Anchorage after college where I met my husband. We have been married for 11 years and we have 5 amazing little humans that we are raising. Most of our days are filled with chaos that I realize I will miss after I put them to bed. During the summer we love to go camping and exploring and do as much fishing as we can. It’s taken me a long time to do this part of my website (too long) I find it hard to write about myself for some reason but 2016 was a huge year for my business and I really want my followers to know me. If you saw me outside of my work you might say I am quiet, maybe even shy but when I get behind the lens I dive deep into my passion. Whether it be my never ending patience during a newborn shoot or doing anything and everything to making your little one comfortable and smiley during the family session. I become talkative and silly, most of the time singing and dancing for the kiddos while making mom and dad laugh too. It’s like nothing else matters to me then catching those memories for my families. I love to talk about life and family as we go through the session and build a friendship. I genuinely care about each one of my families and look forward to the next time I get to see them. My favorite part of the sessions are the in between moments, those smiles when you’re adoring your sweet babies or that look of love in your significant other’s eyes. You know the ones I’m talking about; when you may feel super awkward during the shot but it ends up being one of your favorite picture’s ever.
I couldn’t be more excited to work with you. Stop waiting for the right time and start savoring the moments now.

You don’t have to be an extrovert for this photo shoot to work, it’s my passion to bring out the best of you.
