Being a mother is the best gift I have ever been blessed to receive. I have an adorable little 8-year-old boy who I love with my whole heart. It can be hard at times trying to juggle a house, sports, career and time for myself most days. But it is the best job I could ask for.
I was raised by a single mother, and that connection is so precious. My mom and I were photographed together when I was about 12 when my mom was starting on her new path of being a single mother. When I see that image of us at that time, I think about the incredible journey we were about to go on as a mother and a teenager. These images become more and more special as we all have grown older.
I believe all women deserve to be photographed at all stages of life with their children to leave beautiful legacy images. I decided that since this is so dear to my heart, that I would start a unique project that I'm calling MOTHERHOOD, a photography legacy for you and your family.
I will be photographing 30 women with their children and hopefully three generations as well. I will be showcasing 25-30 mothers and their children to feature in my Motherhood magazine. I will also photograph each of you separately as well as pair children together for portraits of just them.
Your children don’t see tired eyes or extra pounds,
they see their BEAUTIFUL MOTHER.

About the photographer
This past year I was awarded Master Photographer from the Portrait Masters accreditation program and I just received this beautiful badge to display on my website. This is something that in my 13 years as a photographer it means so very much to me. I'm over the moon excited to share this with you.
To my clients -Thank you for letting me photograph you and opening up to me. I could not have done any of this beautiful work without all of YOU
