My passion for photography came about once our little princess came to this world. She’s the little miracle that makes life complete and my passion just grew stronger trying to capture her milestones in life. I just knew once I picked up the camera that this is what I wanted to do. My husband Nick has been equally supportive with my photography journey.

I shoot with a Canon Mark IV and Mark III. My favorite lenses are the Canon 50mm 1.2L, Sigma 35 mm, and Canon 85 mm 1.8.

Aside from photography, I also do crafts on the side using my cricut.
