After years of trying to conceive and a successful round of IVF later, our little miracle arrived 10 weeks early at 2 lbs.  Our daughter spent a few months in the NICU.  We recorded the trying time through our cell phone cameras and captured precious moments that reminded us of our journey with our little girl.  In retrospect,  I wished a professional photographer depicted how tender of a time this was.  Reflecting on this challenging time inspired me and decided to pursue another passion and purpose.

Since childhood, I loved being in friends' faces with the camera.  I remember my dad letting me take his Canon to school, I was in third grade!  What was he thinking?? The same Canon is sitting on my mantel.   Before starting a family, I shadowed UPI & St. Louis Cardinals and Blues Photographer, William Greenblatt, a dear friend and mentor to this day.  After family life settled some, I continued my photography journey at the New York Institute of Photography.  St. Louis is filled with talent and I am happy to collaborate and learn from some of the best in the field.  I feel fortunate to have trained with internationally known newborn photographer, Amy McDaniel with Dew Drops Photography and ecstatic to bring what I learned to the Lou!

St. Louis City born and bred with some of my childhood spent in Kentucky (I'll throw "ya'll" around).  I enjoy entertaining, family life, playing the ukulele and karaoke:)  In addition to being a photographer, I am a certified special education teacher of 15 years.  I plan on creating a photography curriculum for children in the future.  In my free time, I take delight in dining, wining with family and friends or having a dance party with my daughter and nieces. 

Photographs convey emotions and memories.  It would be an honor to not only take pictures but to document those moments in your life in a creative and authentic manner.

My mission is to offer affordable, heartwarming and memorable photography.
