About Me

I love to show young high school seniors how beautiful and important they really are. Capturing this very special time for them before they start a new session of their lives.

As a mother of 4 teenagers I understand exactly how important this time is for the whole family.

Emmerson has danced most of her life.  We both knew how important it was to capture this side of her.  I wanted to experiment with colored powder used in an Indian tradition called Holi.

Emmerson was so at ease and and we had such a creative vibe that we shot till late that night.  At midnight in my driveway, with Holi powder everywhere,  she looked up at me and there it was.  The perfect shot…  

What a stunning young lady you truly are.

We had so much fun with Claudia. We went from a full stylized flower shoot to a white on white studio look. One of my favorite things is to draw out the different personalities within each individual. We pulled wardrobe and accessories from my style closet and also tied in items Claudia brought.

Both this image and the award-winning image above were shot in the same session.   We used two  completely different styles and perspectives for this young model and they turned out amazing.

Annie wanted a water portrait, so we found this beautiful local stream and literally dove right in… Wow, Annie did such an amazing job not showing how truly cold the water was. She had to pose just perfectly so we could capture the shot and both not fall in. The life of a model…

What a great day, rubber boots, hot chocolate and all.  Annie you are a blessing.

Maren grew up around horses which she truly loves.  Together we brainstormed the perfect equestrian session.  We figured out the logistics to get her horse to a nearby field, with and amazing pond, at the perfect time of day.  

Together we created this beautiful image and it brought back so many of my own childhood memories.  Thank you Maren, you rocked…

I always wanted to create an image with a parachute dress. I fell in love with the color of this parachute and I knew I had to find the perfect girl. I wanted a tall girl with warm skin tones and dark hair and Ellie was perfect.

We had so much fun, her mom and my husband were throwing the parachute in the air and running… We created magic this day. It was hard to decide on a few favorites, here is one of them.
