hi! welcome to my blog - a little window into my life, my heart & my photography. so happy that you're here!
i live in austin. i'm married to my best friend dave. we have a chock-full-of-personality 8 year old son jonah. i'm originally from chicago where my huge extended family still lives and i miss them every day. i have a friendly & relaxed personality. and i am totally passionate about what i do, about the people in my life & about Jesus my savior.
things i love:
deep, vibrant color. indie movies & music. chapstick. 72 degrees & a light breeze. converse. silliness. kindness. the light a half hour before sunset. stranger than fiction. chocolat. anything involving cheese, especially cheesecake. flowers. parks & rec. gilmore girls. road trips. clever quotes. witty humor. rain.
about my photography:
people have told me that i have a gift for capturing the real shine-from-the-inside beauty in everyone i photograph. i don't think there is a greater compliment for me. i try to live my life in a way that is honest and real and beautiful, and my hope is that it would reflect in my photography.
