You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment.
– Thoreau

Hello there, lovely friends.

I think you’ll agree with me that pictures are more than a snapshot of a single moment in time. They are a window into another time, they are love bottled up and saved forever, they are wonderment in a single frame. Ah, how I love photographs.

I also love

…waking up for the sunrise

…the sound of little feet and innocent giggles

…simple beauty and unconditional love

…light that wraps around us like a warm blanket

I am convinced that my children are the reason I was born. Being their Mother fills my life with purpose, meaning, excitement, passion, and a kind of unconditional love that is deeper than the greatest depths of the ocean. They are amazing humans who teach me and challenge me to be better every single day. I owe everything I am to them.

I love life to be filled with variety, so I take on several professional roles within the photography industry. I am the Product Editor for the coolest magazine on the market, Click Magazine. I am proud to have contributed to every single issue since its inception in 2012.

I like to hang out at Clickin Moms, an industry leader and online gathering place for over 16,000 photo enthusiasts and professional photographers. CM members are among the most inspiring people I’ve met, and I have lots of lifelong friendships thanks to CM. If you haven’t checked it out, I encourage you to head over and see what it’s all about. It’s my favorite one-stop shop for learning, connecting, getting inspired, and fostering creativity and growth. I am a mentor and workshop instructor at CM, and a staff member as well. One of my main staff roles at CM is coordinating the programming for Click Away, a gathering for photographers who want to learn and be inspired.

And of course I run my own low-volume boutique photography business that allows me to capture creative people and loving families.

Ah, this wild and precious thing called life. Every single day of it is a gift.
