At heart I’m just a simple small town girl.  I grew up in Illinois surrounded by cornfields and country roads. I suppose that is where I first found my inspiration for photography. I used to take photos of my surroundings. I would also pose my baby dolls and stuffed animals and take their picture with a little hand me down 35 mm camera.  As I got older, I was taking photos at basketball and football games. (I was a cheerleader!) I didn’t know it at the time, but I had a good eye for the camera. I was always an artistic child and loved taking photos!  I guess you could say that photography was in my genes, as my great-grandfather was an amazing amateur photographer. He developed his own film ~ black and white, of course.

I specialize in lifestyle family portraits and newborn photography in the Ocean Springs, MS and surrounding area. My photo shoots are mostly on location, using natural light. I like for my photo shoots to be fun and relaxed. That’s when we get the best smiles and most genuine expressions from children and adults alike. It’s so important to be able to document special moments in life. I like to see the look on a client’s face when they get to see that moment again because it was captured on film…priceless! I love finding new and exciting locations for photo shoots, so I am willing to travel within reason.

  • I love Jesus, family, friends, photography…in that order.

  • I love the smell of the beach, rain, coffee, and fresh cut grass.
  • I’m a chocoholic!  MMMM…chocolate 
  • My favorite color is green.
  • I rarely eat plain potato chips without dipping them in ketchup first!
  • I see faces in the strangest places!  Don't forget to check out my #whenyourestrange page.

I would love to hear from you so we can capture your special moments in life, no matter how big or small the moments may be.
