I’d like to share my story…

I wake up excited each and every day, eager to learn, inspire, teach and make a difference in this world.  Although I see myself as a dedicated and hard working woman, I also see that I have been given so many gifts in my life.  I’m blessed with a beautiful family, four unique and amazing children, an unbelievably supportive husband (who I am lucky enough to label as my BFF) and a challenging, yet extremely fulfilling career.  I have the pleasure of working with a group of very talented, hard working and dependable staff that I am proud to call my friends. If you are reading this you either share my interests or value the art in photography.  Please take a look around, send an email or give us a call, we’d love to have the opportunity to make another friend.
