I'm so glad you're here!

OK, it's true...I am another mom-turned-photographer, and I'm not sorry about it! I have always been drawn to photography, but I guess there's just something about having kids of my own that made it REALLY clear how absolutely essential it is to document and preserve all the little details of my growing babies.  Helping other parents capture and artfully display their own family memories has become such a passion of mine, I just don't think I'll ever get sick of it! It is such an honor and brings me so much joy.

I can't wait to get to know you and your family! 

- I'm a Purdue grad (BOILER UP) and worked as a case manager for a community mental health organization until having my first son...and realizing that I was far more passionate about birth, babies, and photography.

- I trained and certified as a birth doula (aka pregnancy/birth coach) in 2018. My favorite part about being a doula is helping clients empower themselves through knowledge and prepare mentally and physically for whatever type of birth they have!

- I am an enneagram 9 and INFJ. 

- On a typical weeknight after kids are in bed, you will most often find me on the couch snuggled under my beloved throw blankets. Sometimes while shopping online for more throw blankets. It's a problem.

- If I could only eat one meal for the rest of my life, it would most likely be Thai food.

- I'm a proud boy mom and sister to three little brothers. I'm not afraid to utilize a good fart joke in a session when needed. (also, thank goodness for baby girl newborn sessions where I get my girly fix styling them with alllll the flowers and bows!)
