I have been a photographer all of my life and I always knew I wanted to work with children. I worked as a school counselor and school psychologist for a few years. Then, after my husband, Phillip and I started having children, I wanted to do something different. I decided that teaming up my joy of working with children and my love of photography would be the best job I could ever have. And it really is! I work with children of all ages, but specialize in newborn sessions and high school senior portrait sessions. I am also available for maternity sessions.
I opened my business in 2012 and have studied and mentored with some of the biggest names in the photography world. I often go to workshops and photography seminars to keep learning and growing. I am also a member of the Professional Photographers of America. I have been taught baby safety by top newborn professionals and pride myself on posing newborns safely. In my education profession, I often worked with children with special needs. I am very involved with and work well with the Down Syndrome community, as my youngest daughter was born with it.
