an encourager, and living by faith

i am a visual storyteller

Before I could even read, I was transfixed by the photographs in National Geographic magazines. The way they told a story without reading a single word mesmerized me. 

By age 11, I had a camera in hand to document both the significant and the everyday moments. I still rely on photos to relive good memories! What started as "homework" in a photography class thus began my journey into the world of capturing memories through my lens. 

My Mission

My mission is to tell your story through timeless images and encourage you to see yourself as valued and cherished through the process of working together.

Your unique story deserves to be seen and preserved for life -- whether you're a couple, a business owner, or an advocate raising awareness for a cause.

As a social introvert, I love to be around people as much as I cherish time by myself watching Netflix documentaries.

I'd eat cereal for dinner if I weren't married to a husband who has a gift for cooking.

I love technology and how connected we are but often dream of living off the grid in a European countryside with no cell signal. 

I come from a first generation family. My "Oma" said her happiest day was the day she became a U.S. Citizen.

I'm saved by grace and try to do my imperfect best to love others the way Christ loves me.
