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 three of the most extraordinary children. We are currently exploring all that North Carolina has to offer and living every day full of love.

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 was resolved 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
