Birth and Newborn Photography
Children, Engagement and Special Occasion
Family, Pets, Graduation, and Hobby Photography

From the moment I took my first picture with a cheap little plastic camera at about age 9 I was hooked on capturing treasured moments in order to relive them later.

While I love nature, animals, and travel photography, people are my favorite subjects. Weddings, births, newborns, children...all stages of life. Twenty years of labor/delivery/neonatal nursing have given me a particular love of capturing the birth and newborn experience.

My husband Tom, besides being an amazing Appliance Repair Man (, loves vintage cars, and I've found I can enjoy photographing these wonderful old muscle cars along with him.
