In high school I discovered I had a love for photography.  I was intrigued by the mystery and science of how a photograph worked from the settings on my camera, to the final product of the photograph on Kodak paper. 
Continuing this love, I graduated from Texas Tech University with a photography degree and my curiosity was fulfilled when developing my own film and photographs on archival paper.  The mystery was solved, and the time in the darkroom was like therapy.


I met my husband at Texas Tech University in 2001, and we got married in 2003.  We have been married for 16 years now with two handsome and cute little boys. 
I am a balloon and my husband is the string.  I am somewhat of a hippie child and wanderer.  He is grounded and well organized.  He helps me not float off too far and get lost and I help him be a little more spontaneous.  Together we are a perfect pair.
Favorites include: running, cooking, biking, and traveling to Colorado.



My passion for photography continues on to the relationships of the people I'm photographing.  The genuine love when a groom sees his bride for the first time cannot be duplicated.  The gentle touch from a baby holding on to his mama melts your heart.  I love these moments.  The real moments.  The raw and sweet, and authentic, and crazy and wild moments.
