I live with gratitude, the wide-eyed wonder of a toddler, and wear my heart on my sleeve.
I believe in connection, life long friendships, giving all I have to serve others.
I love to tell stories. That's what I realized photography was for me, not so much a static image on a piece of paper, but a story, vibrant, full of life and full of connection.
My clients - they get me, we connect. I cherish the connection between us, and it ensures that I can tell their stories, create their legacies, document their journies.
I have the best job ever.

I live for hugs. Big, long, squishy, heart-felt, wrap your arms around someone with abandon, hold on for a moment too long embraces.  I miss hugs.....
I believe that we all need to live in and celebrate the present moment. What better way to remember and have it become a part of a lifetime legacy.
I believe that the best smell in the world is found in a horse's neck .
I believe that the Alberta prairie skies are the most beautiful in the world and that the peaks of the Rockies the best place for peace.
My greatest accomplishments?  They  call me Mom.


a little bit about


From pre-session planning, to a fun and creative session, easy image review and product ordering session, being connected and comfortable helps me create a one of a kind, bespoke session and experience

experience = legacy


I believe that truly connecting with her clients creates a relationship that translates through the lens.     

wants to be understood


Everyone has a story, and, for those who want that story told in an authentic way,  I take the time to get to know my clients, and understand exactly how they want that story told. 

wants their story told


My images are bright and bold, unique and with a lifestyle approach.  We will get those perfect poses, but we look for the perfect moments that fill the heart.
