I am a wife and a mom of three. A midwest girl who fell in love with the desert. I am messy and honest. I’m always looking for connections and laughter, in life and in photographs.

I am not a portrait photographer. I am an artist who makes photos. And people are my favorite subject. All I need is your trust so that I can tell your story.

I would love to chat with you. Shoot me an email at
