I am a photographer based in Columbus, Ohio, but I’m always willing to travel for photos! I started shooting in 2005 when my husband was deployed to Iraq. During that long year, I relied on photography as a way to record the joy and beauty I desperately needed. It was comforting. It was a hobby then. Now it’s a passion.
I shoot using natural light, usually outdoors or in well-lit areas of my clients’ homes. I love a candid, lifestyle approach and photos that reflect the true character of the people pictured. I believe the best photos have at least three key ingredients: truth, emotion, and beauty.
In January 2011, I had the privilege to photograph the birth of a friend. I was hooked. I couldn’t wait for the next birth. It wasn’t just the photography—it was the environment. I realized I had a passion for birth, too. I eventually decided to become a birth doula. I loved attending births, but found myself wanting even more involvement and more structure. I started college (for the first time ever) in August 2015, and my intent is to become a registered nurse!
