Who am I?  Oh Lord, I'm a hot mess!!  (Just ask anyone that knows me)

I'm not shy, have been told I'm loud and crazy (the good crazy), I love to lip sync in the car (check out instagram), I have no filter, I love my dentist, I don't get embarrassed, must have coffee everyday, I'm a CANON girl, I love wine (red or white I'm not picky), I am a natural Blonde, but these days I have to cover the gray hair, I love to volunteer at my daughters old High School (Jesse C. Carson), pet hair is typically on my clothes (2 dogs & 1 cat), I love the beach (hate the sand), I love run on sentences, I love to go on cruises, LOVE MY FRIENDS & FAMILY, I love to laugh, I love to make others laugh and smile and not just when I have a camera in my hand.  Life is too short to NOT be happy!  I am blessed to still have my BFFs from High School (Stephanie and Angie), I am originally from the Northern Virginia area (outside of DC) and have lived here in NC since 1998. I love it here and call North Carolina HOME!

I am a mother of a beautiful & sassy daughter who's in Majoring in Social Work at East Carolina University ECU in Greenville, NC.  GO PIRATES!  I have been shooting since she was a baby... that's how it all started.  I got a Canon 35mm FILM CAMERA (yeah, that long ago) camera and of course I used my own little angel as my muse.  I had photos of her on my desk at work and everyone thought they were "professional".... and it all snowballed from there!  I'm self taught and boy I have learned so much from film to digital.  I now have 6 Cameras and over 20 Lenses!!!

I am a location photographer and love all the possibilities to get just the right photo!  I am constantly finding new location spots - if you have one - let me know.  I love parks, lakes, beaches, mountains, downtown streets and alleys and more.... 

I love what I do - really!  I am so blessed and thank GOD everyday. If you click on CLIENTS in the menu you can take a look at previous work.  xoxoxox
