I always struggle with the task of trying to tell others about myself so I will keep it simple. I am a Wife, Mother, Daughter and Friend. My three children keep me very busy and remind me of what is important in life. I wear my heart on my sleeve and try to see the good in everything and everyone. I love all things about photography, especially creating lasting memories while spending time with your family. It is important to me that your time in front of my camera is a fun experience and one that you will return for again and again. I feel my photography should capture true and candid moments and I often wonder why anyone would want anything else. As I get older and my kiddos grow, I notice that time is measured by these fleeting moments with our children. My vision for all my families is to display their family art in their homes so they may smile each and every time they catch sight of it. I hope that you will share my vision, continue to follow my work and most importantly cherish every moment we capture together for years to come....

Behind the Lens

"May you always be the one who notices the little things that make the light pour through, and may they always remind you: There is more to life and there is more to you."
- Morgan Harper Nichols

Shelby's great talent in photographing children made me want to become her apprentice. I was sure I missed my calling after watching her, it is like poetry. Thank you Shelby for sharing this photo of our darling Johnny Ray.
