I am a daughter, a Mom, a sister, a world traveler, a potter, and a wanna-be surfer, among a few other things. I love any kind of beach (bonus points for the Caribbean or even more exotic!) and I hate the cold. I grew up in Iowa, moved to New York City as SOON as I could, and now I live in the Northern Virginia area (Reston, to be exact, but I will travel anywhere).
My favorite day would involve my son Kai (of course), a camera, close friends and provocative conversation. I love to work with whatever natural light is available, and what makes me SO happy is to see the looks on my clients’ faces when they see the pictures from our session for the first time. I try to capture images that are a stolen moment in time and will provide happy memories forever.
