I get that you don’t want a complete stranger showing up to take photos of the most intimate day of your life – whether that day is a wedding, family portrait, or engagement shoot – either way, being photographed can be quite invasive. So, here’s a bit about me to reassure you that I know what I’m doing.
My experience in wedding, family, and professional photography began 12 years ago, but the joy I found from sealing happy moments came from long before that.
I was born and raised in New Jersey. But in 2016, with my husband and our three girls, we moved out to the sunny state of Florida - and we’ve been loving it ever since!
When my children were born, I couldn’t help but photograph them as they grew up; there were so many moments of happiness, and I wanted to remember them all. Over time, through a lot of practice, I discovered what worked and what didn’t. I used my sharp wit and bubbly personality to bring authentic smiles to my subjects’ faces – and over time, my passion for photography developed into something greater.
You see, I’ve always enjoyed bringing a smile to people, and through photography, I found a way to make those authentic moments last forever.
I understand the want to capture family memories or a big event, but there’s magic in authenticity; At that moment of a genuine smile or a twinkle in the eye. If you want to remember a special moment, authentically, forever, then I’m the photographer for you.
All you need to do is tell me what you want and I’ll make it happen.
I always found a home behind the camera, but now I want to share that home with you. My contact details are below, I hope to speak with you soon.
the beach...always the beach
Disney world never gets old
in my driveway at my home...just gettin' creative
Not just a little. Not on an as needed basis. But BIG love. And I get to see Him every time I look through that viewfinder to capture a moment in time. He gave me a gift and a desire and a yearning for more and it's my calling to show people who He is through images
I previously worked in insurance full time but refused to give up my photography business. So much so that I shot an ENTIRE WEDDING on my lunch break...90 minutes...Didn't miss a beat. Delivered the client a complete gallery like I was there all day. How? Well, I'm an Ennegram 8 and LOVE a challenge and planning and prayer and more prayer and more prayer and an awesome couple were the only reason it was a success! :)
I can photograph a wedding cake 9,000 different ways. Why? What's the point? Because in my heart, I know that you've spent countless hours and months and maybe even years thinking about them and I want to preserve those details for you for a lifetime and beyond.
Say what you will...people watching is FUN. I think that's why I enjoy candid photography so much. Grabbing raw, unprompted emotion is what I know my clients look back on and love the most. The in between and the unseen...that's what makes a memory so valuable.
