Boy Mom. Photographer. Crazy Dog Lady. Dr. Pepper Addict.
By day I am a photographer, by night I am a….. photographer? Wait, what?
What I mean to say is I am clearly living the dream!
During the 9-5 week you can find me at my ‘day job’ as a Visual Information Specialist for the Army Corps of Engineers where I do photography, videography, graphic design, and general shenanigans with my workmates. People say I have a ‘cake job’ to which I completely agree… There is LITERALLY ALWAYS cake where I work for some reason. Which is a.w.e.s.o.m.e.
Evenings and weekends you can also find me taking pictures… Of my family, my dog, random sparkly things. But I can also be found taking pictures of YOUR family if you like… (please bring your dog if you have one). Some other places you might find me include: head over heels photographing a wedding (where there’s also cake), spending time talking about snapchat and untarnished dreams with my seniors, or catching up with previous clients-turned-friends.
Giving back is important to me and my photography helps me do that in a lot of ways! I am a huge advocate for animal rescue. I shoot special adoption photos for local shelters, rescue agencies and volunteer for other special events when I can.
Want to get a little more personal? I love going to the movies and reading when I have time. I have a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Intelligence. I was active duty Air Force for 11 years in the field of Emergency Management. Probably not what you expected, right? I am originally from the St. Louis area and have an obnoxious obsession for Cardinals Baseball. All of these things have led me here in one seredipidous way or another and I currently live my dreams here in Winchester, Virginia with my husband, our two little mancubs, and an extremely spoiled dog named Ricco.
