About Me

As a child, I knew that art was my calling. Everywhere I looked I saw the artistic side of things, the way colors blend and weave throughout daily life is something truly magical. I fell in love with photography at an early age, when I had my first camera placed in my hands at the age of 8. I became enticed by the camera’s ability to document the life and to tell stories through images. I knew that photography would always be a part of my life.

In 2008, I married my amazing husband who started working with me on weddings. Together, we began Picture That Photography, pictures that savor life’s precious moments. My style can best be described as photojournalistic with simple tradition and grace. I strive to create artistic imagery, capturing life’s sweetest moments, and the parade of emotions.

I have been able to interweave the three passions in my life – writing and illustrating children’s literature, working with families, and telling stories through the beautiful artistry and depth of photographic images.

Shooting everything from engagement and weddings to life events and family portraits, or my favorite city life. We strive to celebrate the stories of others through vibrant, joyful imagery! I would love to celebrate with you, and I would be honored to tell your story.
