Who I am

I am a photographer and artist living in Golden, Colorado with my husband and two daughters.  When you walk through my home, you see images of my family at all stages and states: babies crying, toddlers teetering, teens joking, pets slobbering, my husband and I beaming.  I am surrounded by this love and these moments, and they bring me profound joy every day.

In junior high, I picked up my first camera, and as the saying goes, the rest is history.  I’ve been photographing my life and family for decades, and decided to make it my profession in 2009.  Since then, I have reveled in every day that has allowed me to delight my clients with photographs that they will love forever.
