I have been completely out of pocket for the first part of this month and I am glad to be back at it! The transition from 2017 to 2018 has been a crazy but wonderful one! In the last three weeks I have purchased a new to me vehicle (my old one died), moved in with my boyfriend of 2 years Matthew, fo...

Long time friends and several years a couple, Maria and Edwin were excited about their session, and picked out some amazing locations for us to use!

I work 9am-5:30pm five days a week.  I clock in, put my personal business aside, and work hard to pay my bills. I try to ignore the constant thoughts of marketing and new equipment to put the proper effort into my daily occupation. This also means that every bit of my energy I put into photography c...
