I have been a wedding photographer for three years, a blogger for five, and have been dreaming too big since 1992.
I went to college to become a History teacher, after a year of studying, I turned in my textbooks and pursued curiosity. Now I travel, explore, and learn anytime I can. (With my camera, of course)
For the most part, I love the simple things in life. Give me a warm cup of coffee, an afternoon walk with my dog, and a good episode of The Office and I'm a happy girl!
That's not too much to ask for right?

On May 17, my life changed forever when I said "I Will" with Dillon.
I photographed my first 4 weddings and in September I was laid off from my full-time job.
I kept hustling in my business and was so addicted I wasn't taking good care of myself or my family.
By the end of the year, I was burnt out and thought about closing up shop.
Today I'm learning how to serve creative women like you in the best ways I know how through my new branding sessions and Biz + Bubbly!
We love our cozy home in Ohio. My husband Dillon, my puppy Ben, and my little orange cat Meeko (yes, she is named after the raccoon in Pocahontas), and I enjoy spending our weekends snuggled on the couch.
