I was drained doing both jobs and I didn't feel like I had enough time doing my MOST important job......being a mother. Last year I made one of the scariest decisions I have made in a long time. I left banking!!! My husband gave me the encouragement to just go for it.  I am so thankful for him.  Here I am... a year later and it was the best decision I ever made.  I am a full time lifestyle photographer and momma.  I know that I am right where I am supposed to be....loving on my clients and loving on my babies!  

I'm a momma of three and they are my world!  I started my photography journey as a mom that just wanted good photos of my kids.  I was self taught and my children were my favorite subjects.  I eventually applied for a second shooting position with a local photographer.  I got the position and worked alongside one of the best photographers in my area for years.  It was a challenging, wonderful experience that I will forever be thankful for.  While doing photography I was also a full time banker for 15 years!  I love both professions but I knew it was time to make a change.
