I am many things....

Mother, wife, photographer, woman, human. 
Just like you, i'm trying to navigate this life, to make it something meaningful. I am equal parts calm and chaos, a little like a storm. The good kind though.  

I'm married to a handsome man in uniform and together we have two brilliant and beautiful little girls. As well as two snuggly pups: Bane and Lulu. We are currently exploring all that North Carolina has to offer and joyfully looking forward to a new baby.

I have always been moved by the arts. Hearing the pure emotion that spills out of a musicians lungs can bring me to tears. Seeing every thought out stroke of a painters brush, I feel the emotions that inspired them. I ached to create, to contribute something beautiful in what was often a cruel world, to make others feel.  Considering myself uncreative, I resolved myself to simply appreciating. Then, I had a daughter. I saw the days, the changes, life itself, flashing before my very eyes. Silently begging for them to slow down, I learned the value of a moment. I knew what I was to create, rather, to capture. 

I started a blog where I share family & in home sessions, wedding photography, personal ramblings and photography tips. You can make me smile and follow it here, ROOTS
