FUN facts about me!

  • I am OBSESSED with photography and have been known to work 20 hours straight after a shoot with little food and loads of COFFEE!
  • Uploading pictures from a wedding or photoshoot is like opening Christmas presents for me!
  • My best friend of 35 years would say I am loyal, funny, compassionate, passionate and a little crazy!  
  • Forensic Files…an obsession that keeps me up at nights.
  • If I weren’t a Photographer, I’d probably be solving crimes!
  • Children….I have one and a new grandbaby!  They are what ROCKS my world aside from photography!
  • DANCE….I can bust out moves like you’ve never seen! It’s one of my favorite past times, and you may even catch me dancing at your wedding!
  • Personality....I live each day as though tomorrow were my last!
  • I am in LOVE with LOVE and am fiercely passionate about weddings!
  • I love road trips, people watching, live music, shopping, summer, meeting new people, networking, hanging out with friends/family and my obese kitty!  OH, and an occasional afternoon nap!
