I was born and raised in the small town of Stuarts Draft, Virginia; surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains.
I went to college in Tennessee and married my college sweetheart.
I'm a busy mom to two cute boys and a sweet baby girl.
I enjoy drinking milk with all meals; yes, Italian and Mexican foods included. (But I order water at restaurants.)
I enjoy exercising, but I do much better when I have a friend to join me!
I looove sweet, creamy coffee and iced coffee drinks; but I usually wait until the afternoon to drink them...during naps!
People almost always spell either my first or last name wrong.
I was an elementary school teacher for 4 years, until my oldest son was born.
I'm an introvert and I hate being the center of attention. But occasionally I pull out my bossy-teacher/first-born self to be in charge. :)
Jesus is my Savior; I want to love Him and love others well, which is always a work in progress.
I have always wanted to remember things the way they were, and I have never been very good at accepting change. (I was the kid who cried when her parents remodeled the severely outdated kitchen and made it bigger.) In high school, my best friend and I kept ridiculously detailed journals in a Word document about our lives with color-coded fonts so that any information would be a quick search and click away.
In some form or another, I have always tried to record things so that I could look back and remember every detail. I've also always liked art; so using the art of photography to tell real-life stories has become the perfect fit for me.
I photograph families in Staunton, Waynesboro, and Augusta County, Virginia (as well as surrounding areas). If you have any questions or want to book a session,
email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
I can't wait to hear from you!
