Twirling freely on an old familiar dirt road visiting family in Western Oklahoma.


I crave the way soft natural light gently caresses the human form.  How the wind whispers through a strand of hair, nudging it to take flight.  How a child's wisdom and wonder radiate from their little face.  How things forgotten become things remembered.  How emotion can be felt through time and space.  When the last light of day turns everything magic.  Where reality and imagination collide to create visual poetry.  When a still, quiet photograph becomes something much more.



I'm quiet, observant, honest, and I don't like shoes. 

I'm married to an incredibly talented man who is so good to us.  We live in the Athens Ohio area and have a bunch of kids, ages ranging from 5 through 16.  They are loud and mouthy and sweet and messy, and I live for their giggles and hugs.

When I'm not doing mom stuff, I am a maker. Maker and keeper of memories. I also love researching and learning new things. My current projects are learning videography and genealogy, both genetic and traditional. I suppose that goes hand in hand with photography for preserving family history!

But until my little ones are a little bigger, my time for these kinds of things is a bit limited. They're only little once and life is short.  Priorities ♥
