I was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland. In 2009, the mountains called and I followed. It was that decision that led me to Red River, New Mexico, where I found the love of my life and became a mama to the most beautiful little girl.
Being a mother has taught me to be ready for anything, to savor those precious moments that are fleeting, and most importantly to have fun. I try to apply those same principles to my work.
It can be a little awkward to meet a stranger with a big camera and just let it all hang out. I totally get it, which is why I urge my clients to focus on each other first as we get acquainted. It is far more important to me that I capture your authentic relationships with one another rather than having everyone perfectly posed and looking into my lens for every single shot.
Ansel Adams once said, “You don’t take a photograph. You make it.” For me, capturing those true to life moments, that’s what makes an image. That’s where the magic happens. That’s Living the Dream.
