For 16 years I have grown my photography business. My work has been featured in national photographic magazines and at national photographic conferences. In 2008, I was chosen as the official photographer for the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition show filmed in West Chester, Ohio. In 2014, I was named as a member of the Olympus Visionary Team. As an Olympus Visionary have the honor of representing a company that is near and dear to my heart--the Olympus family of cameras.
My husband, Jeff, and I are proud foster parents. For the last nine years, we have been blessed with helping to nurture ten long-term foster kiddos and a whole bunch of short-term kiddos. Currently, we have 5 children living with us including our two biological sons, our adopted son, and two foster children. In our free time, we like to travel the US in their camper. We have had the privilege of seeing the vast majority of the country.
I'm the smiling voice you will hear on the other side of the phone. Never without treats, I will be the one who greets you when you come into the studio, the one who helps you get ready at your wedding, the one who will play with your child to elicit the perfect smile for the photographers, and the one who will happily snuggle your newborn during their session.
I am the happy-go-lucky photographer with a heart of gold. I can make babies sleep and high school seniors smile. I can sing "You are my Sunshine" to your toddler and "Shut Up and Dance" with your tween. I can even get your husband to come back year after year for your family pictures...with a smile on his face!
I love to have fun during my sessions. You will most likely see me with my hair pulled back, sitting criss-cross on the floor with a smile as big as the ocean.
