When I received my first camera (a 110 remember those?), I was 10.  It was tricky relationship.  I couldn't drive, film was expensive, it had to be developed.  Sigh.  I have a lot of blurry photos of my rabbit. 

My grandfather bought my first DSLR camera for me in 2005 and my love of photography was rekindled!  I started taking photos again and never stopped.  Digital meant I could take A.  Lot.  Of.  Pictures.    

Originally from Maryland, my family and friends are scattered all over this beautiful planet.  I love them.  And I miss them.  When I received my new camera, friends and family became my favored subjects.  

It difficult to explain the feeling of revisiting a time and place by viewing an image.  But we all know what that feels like...

A laugh.  

A joke.  

Time travel.   

History.  

♥ LOVE ♥ 

All of this boils down to love!  I love to love!  And I love capturing love.  Weddings.  Mamas-to-be.  Families.  Kiddos.  They all exude that beautiful emotion and I feel lucky to be chosen to detail it and deliver those memories to you!

I absolutely live to photograph people.  I'm obsessed with expecting mamas.  There's just something about the belly.  And bring on the babies.  They are the best.  And families.  And weddings!  Ok, just get in front of my lens and I promise we will have fun!

Let's bond a little....

More about me:

I am a bed maker, an over-analyzer,  an intro-extrovert, an uncategorical-consumer-of-food (mindful meat eater?).  

I don't like labels.

I have a weird obsession with excel and RECYCLING!  

Conservation and sustainability are part of my soul.  

Wastefulness drives me NUTTERS.

I love science.  And emoticons.  

I'm afraid of heights (and have a little claustrophobia...insert emoticon here).

I am a nature-lover.  

I love gardening, watching things grow and knowing where my food comes from; I am a veggie-lover.

I learned how to can...and now Christmas will never be the same.  I realize this makes me sound like I’m 80 years old and I’m ok with that because *people love my pickles*.

♥ My husband is THE hardest working, most loving man I know who can-fix-the-hell-out-of-anything.  He *IS* my problem solver.

♥ My Sadiekins arrived on June 19, 2013 and my heart burst wide open.  I expect it will always be a little raw and bleeding.  She is my heart and soul.  And then on April 23, 2016 (Earth Day, obvi, under a pink moon), brother Avery popped into our lives.  These kids are the best thing that has ever happened to our little family!

I love the smell of fresh cut grass, outdoor concerts, MARYLAND (crab cakes!), Wrightsville Beach, grilling out, a good bloody mary, campfires, surprises, family, smiling, food, *wine*, friends, L I F E ♥

I have an NPR addiction.  

*ART* *ART* *ART*: photography, painting, drawing, graphic art, craftyness, sewing 

I am a dog-lover...Shay lover!  I really do have the best. dog. ever.  Cooper too.  He's new, but he rules.  Such a good cuddler! 

I love reading, learning, smiling, my SISTERS♥ are my best friends ... so are my BROTHERS, oh and the aunts!....ok, ok and mom’s, dad’s, uncles, cousins ….
