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.

Quick Facts

As a social introvert, I love to surround myself with people as much as I cherish time to disappear and watch Netflix documentaries.

I have a goal of hitting all seven continents during my lifetime.

Five down, three to go!

I come from a first generation family, so I have a soft spot for immigrants. 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. 

Rain or shine, it's always a good day for an adventure with my husband and best friend, Mike.
