GET TO KNOW ME

I am just a simple girl that walks on the sunny side of the street who enjoys sweets, little details and a dash of sparkle. 

Fueled by equal parts caffeine and passion, I spend my days capturing the kinds of images that make you stop, smile and ask time to please slow down. Your story, your love, is beautiful and I can’t wait to capture it in images you will treasure for years to come.

I believe in love, laughter, kindness...and a glass of wine with your best people!
