"ONCE WE BELIEVE IN OURSELVES, WE CAN RISK CURIOSITY, WONDER, SPONTANEOUS DELIGHT, OR ANY EXPERIENCE THAT REVEALS THE HUMAN SPIRIT.”

From a young age, I had always wanted to be an artist, so I went to
     college and got a bachelors in art from UCSB. Those were some of          my favorite years... drawing and painting in the studio that
          overlooked the beautiful ocean coast of Santa Barbara! While
               there, I studied everything from painting, watercolor,
                  drawing, graphic design, to of course photography. My
                     career began as a photojournalist, then became fashion
                       focused and quickly evolved into what it is today. Over
                         the years, being swept up into a full time professional
                          photographer life, I felt I got too far away from the
                           rest of my creative abilities. So, in this newest
                            chapter of my life, not only will I be birthing a
                          second baby girl, but also showcasing more of the
                         other sides of my creativity. My aim is to continually
                        remind myself to make time to create, design, or even
                      handcraft whatever my mind can imagine, and then not
                   be afraid to share it with the world.

Dig a little deeper, and this is what's nearest and dearest to me: My pride, my joy, my heart... is my family. I met my husband in high school, we said our vows ten years later, and now we've been married for five years. Together we live for adventure & hope to stay young at heart forever. Becoming a mama was by far the most precious experience God has gifted me with, but also the toughest challenge I've ever come across. I adore my daughter, and we can't wait to meet her little sister! Among other things, animals & dessert are a couple of my weaknesses, but traveling the world is what truly inspires my soul.
