This is me & my adorable & crazy fam! Welcome! Thanks for visiting. I am a natural light photographer located in Tampa, FL. I photograph children, families, maternity, newborns and couples. I am a Mama to these 2 sweet, beautiful and energetic children:) And they are the reason I became so inspired by photography. I wish I could document every single second so I don’t forget it all. Time keeps passing more quickly each year, and photographs make at least that one moment stand still in time, and I LOVE that!

Some useless facts about me: I am a Jersey girl & an only child. I am a Starbucks junkie & lover of all foo-foo drinks. I am an FSU Seminole & a sorority girl. I love the beach & sunsets with sand in my toes. I’ve been married for 12 yrs. I exercise regularly, but don’t really like it:) I’m a girly girl…I love pink and tulle and flowers! Yet I’m also obsessed with all things rustic, shabby chic & boho. I try really hard to be a good cook, but I’m just not! I LOVE HGTV. Pizza and ice cream are my 2 favorite foods. I’m a city girl through & through. I love music. Some of my faves are Dave Matthews, Counting Crows, John Mayer, Maroon 5 & Jack Johnson. Although the list could go on & on.

But all you really have to know about me…is that I’m a dreamer, and I’m inspired by the emotional connection of family, the bond of siblings and the soul of a child. I want to create art for you…family heirlooms. In 5, 10, 50 years from now, I want my images to stir an emotion inside and bring you back to this day, and help you remember all that the mind forgets over time. I want to document that connection so you can hold onto it forever.

I shoot with a Nikon D600. My lenses include an 85mm 1.4, a 24mm 1.8, a 50mm 1.8, and a Lensbaby composer pro with sweet 35 optic. My work has been featured on Rock the Shot, Beyond the Wanderlust, Lemonade & Lenses, In Beauty & Chaos, Light Inspired & Photo Artistry.

Thank you so much for considering me as your photographer to help you document the loves in your life. Can’t wait to meet you!
