About Me

Over the past 15 years, every time I picked up a camera, it was purely out of the love of capturing beautiful imagery. When others have asked me to photograph for them, it has always been an honor, whether it was year 1, year 8, or year 15. 

graduate of the New York Institute of Photography (“NYIP”) in Professional Photography, believe strongly in continual learning and immerse myself in daily photography courses. I have also mentored under fine art painters and commercial photographers and hold a B.S. in Management from the University of Akron.

In my free time, you can find me at the beach or mountains with my husband or at home playing with my sweet cats and pup and also napping lol  

In 2022, out of over 150 entries, I won a first-place photography award – and had a second photo featured – from the Virginia Department of Aviation! I am also a proud member of the Professional Photographer’s of America (“PPA”) and obtained my Professional Photographer’s Certification in 2023.
