While my initial dreams were to become a Hollywood starlet or radio's newest pop sensation, plan B was to become a nurse because I wanted to help & nurture people. Unfortunately, after one day of shadowing a nurse, I learned that my stomach was a little too sensitive and my knees a little too weak.
At the tender age of sixteen and pondering what to do next, while I was waiting for my choir class to begin, something magical happened. A fellow student showed me her contact sheets and I was immediately enthralled by this sheet of paper with tiny, rectangular images. That was it, I was sold. I signed up for photography the next day and that, my friends, is how I was fated to be a photographer.
I went on to receive my Bachelor of Fine Arts in photography from the Herron School of Art in Indianapolis, Indiana. I have had the opportunity to photograph everything from theatrical productions to product shots to births. And while my deeds have not been within the walls of a hospital, I still believe that I am helping & nurturing people through capturing their most intimate moments in life. Preserving moments in time, that quite simply put, are as quick as a breath.

Goodness me, I am super duper lucky to have such a beautiful sister. And guess what the best part is? I have TWO others! Yes, I absolutely bribe them to pose for me because it never fails that we produce images like these.
