I am a memory keeper. You should see the stacks of family photo albums on my coffee table.
I am a photograph junky. I love the feel of old silver halide prints in my hands. I could spend hours sifting through photo bins at an antique store, just staring at nameless faces. Don’t even get me started on my grandparents slides from the 60’s.
I am a creator. If I am not photographing it, I am creating it. I like to work with my hands (thanks mom & dad!). Aside from being behind a lens that is where I am the most happy. I like to touch things, hold them in my hands, give them life and a purpose.
I am a believer. My faith gives me purpose, hope, and a future and I believe the Lord gave me creativity to make my journey a bit more fun.
I earned a photography degree in 2007 from SIU (GO DAWGS!) and I have spent the last 9 years honing my skills and learning lots of new techniques.
I have an incredible husband, Matt (an attorney) and 3 precious kiddos, Ruby- age 5, Max- age 3, and Tucker – the baby. Oh and we have a crazy standard poodle named Izzy.
Life is crazy and good. Thanks for being part of my journey.
