People are my inspiration. From listening to the story of how she fell in love with him to figuring out what makes your little one giggle, I want to work together to not only show you but the world the small yet precious moments.

Those subtle, priceless moments of genuineness are what I love capturing in this hectic world. And I’m willing to wait that extra second to capture the tears, laughs and moments of joy.
