The love of creating my vision of something more than just nature photography...

A few years ago, after having our triplets A, B and C - my passion for photography was ignited and there was no stopping the wildfire spreading from my camera. I couldn't sleep, I couldn't eat... all I could think about in my "spare time" was taking pictures and devouring the manuals that came with my camera - sorting through videos and tutorials online and playing endlessly during nap time.

One day, we lost our beloved German Shepherd, Ruger - and the day after, it clicked. I wanted to honor his memory by taking pictures of people with their own beloved family dogs... spending time with dogs just like him and giving families the gift of their connection, recorded. And the more people I photographed, I realized it wasn't just animals that I wanted to capture - it was the emotion that I wanted to get; between a mom and her daughter, a family and their dog, a couple just recently married. I loved it all.

A portrait business was born, but I still had a passion for the natural world - the one that offered me so much valuable practice just years before. So, I kept at it, capturing the little things that are extraordinary in the everyday world - lifting them into the light so that they can be obviously seen and enjoyed.

    I'm a portrait photographer of emotion and light - but in my spare time, nature photography is my passionate hobby - and playing with my captures in Photoshop is even more fun!

Welcome to my shop! I am a photographer of all things beautiful, and that pretty much means anything and everything to me. Like the quote embodies, "If we allow ourselves to be enchanted by the ordinary, we begin to see that ALL things are extraordinary." ~ Dean Koontz

This shop will include mostly the nature part of that statement, though a few animals and some people might sneak in here and there. :) I love to use texture to enhance my original pictures and play with all the different ways they work together, a visual symphony!
