I was born in Chicago, Illinois and spent my early years there before my family relocated to Naples, Florida. I moved to Dallas for college and have lived here ever since with my husband and two children.

I've always loved how a photo can capture a forgotten memory, a precious moment in time we may only thinly hold onto now. In it's simplest form, photography gives me the opportunity to capture what is beautiful and make it last forever. My journey with photography began over a decade ago when I took classes both in the states and abroad, borrowing my father's 35mm camera and snapping photos of interesting architecture and people. My style is to focus almost entirely on natural light. 

Prior to photography, I spent many years working in early childhood special education and, at one point, considered a career as an interior decorator. Now I am lucky enough to combine my passion for design and working with children by getting behind the camera and capturing both of these elements.
