I was born and raised in a small German town with a population of 1503 people. I have a BA in Psychology and worked as a Behavior Analyst with special needs kids for about 10 years. I love diet coke, balsamic vinaigrette dressing on my salad and I could probably eat at Doghouse Grill, Chipotle or In & Out every day. I am a very emotional person. Yes, I can cry watching a heartfelt commercial! I am obsessed with babies and kids...I will do pretty much anything to get a baby to smile, so I can capture that perfect moment. I have three gorgeous kids. Tamia is my sweet 7 year old and Quinton is my almost 5 year old spunky boy. We also have a sweet Layla who is 2.
My passion for photography began when my kids were born. Before I had children a picture was pretty much just a snapshot. Now, every picture I take has to have meaning. It has to make me feel something. I love to capture the whole story. I am all about the moment and how you feel when you look at a photograph. It’s not always about how you look at the time but it’s WHO YOU ARE. We all struggle with our own insecurities - I don’t like my gums when I smile. However, when I look at a photograph of myself with THAT smile I know I felt joy and that is all that matters. My style is very organic, earthy and natural with a bit of vintage. I like to use very simple, dainty and timeless props (e.g. headbands,rompers, bonnets, and more) to highlight babies. We don't want to take attention away from their sweet faces and tiny details.
I would love to capture a moment in time with you!
