Welcome to my online photography gallery of light-filled images intended to inspire you. I am a photographer and graphic designer creating thoughtful and deeply serene images that nurture and echo the beauty of our world. After 30 years of capturing a bazillion moments through photographing weddings and portraits, commercial shoots, and editorial fashion work, my focus today is fine art photography and graphic design.
I’ve taken pictures or been photographed for as long as I can remember, thanks to my photographer grandmother and mother, who shared their commitment to encapsulating meaningful moments with me. Halfway through college, I fell in love with photography. After earning a BFA, I lived and breathed editorial fashion photography. Later, I became one of the Midwest's most sought-after wedding and portrait photographers. I offered a natural, fresh, editorial fashion look – a unique approach to wedding photography at that time. I also love book design and chose to create non-traditional wedding albums that clients appreciated.
Photography has taken me to amazing sites in Canada, the Caribbean, Costa Rica, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, and the United States. Wherever I am, I most love when I raise my camera and connect with my subject, focused on capturing the moment and the light interacting with the scene. My work often represents balance, softness, elegance, grace, and peace. I’ve found that my best work is revealed when I let things happen and don’t force anything. Feeling inspired to create and then watching things unfold is my comfort zone.
In addition to this online art gallery, my images have been featured in local and national publications, books, annual reports, and local and national stores.
