The beauty of life, photography, and preserving family legacies
Like most photographers, I’ve always loved taking photographs. I have fond memories from when I was a kid and I would “play” photographer with my younger brother. At such a young age, I would choose his clothing, style his hair, and then take him out to locations and direct him on how I wanted him to pose. I’d then photograph him with my small Kodak film camera.
Life would take me on many journeys before I would return to photography. The journey that was extremely influential in returning me to photography was my battle with breast cancer. Most cancer survivors will probably tell you that the experience of enduring cancer and surviving it has given them a new appreciation for life. This is very true! As a survivor, I feel that I see more joy and beauty in life than I did before cancer. This pairs naturally with my love and talent for photography. Cancer also taught me that nothing in life is guaranteed, as well as the importance of leaving our legacy for our future family generations. Providing professionally photographed and professionally printed products to my clients is my way of helping families keep their family legacy alive.
It’s our mission to provide a very customized hands-on service for each client so they have a wonderful portrait experience!
A Personal Story
It’s common to have our own personal insecurities with our bodies, especially during pregnancy. As a photographer, cancer survivor, and expectant mother, I found myself facing these insecurities during my second pregnancy while I considered the importance of having my own maternity session. In this article, I share my personal experience with this maternity session and how I came to embrace the beauty of all my scars.
Accolades and Achievements

I have always highly valued education and view it as an important component to my continual professional development as a photographer and small business owner.
