I am a Denver Native and mother to an intelligent and beautiful daughter. I have so many loves in life – God, family, dancing, and real estate. But how I found my passion of photography is quite astonishing. I really had no intention of being a photographer until I found myself in Jamaica photographing a wedding after being asked to do so. I absolutely loved it. The adrenaline and excitement of being responsible for capturing a couple’s beauty, true essence & love during such a life-changing and instrumental moment in their lives was addictive. I have since moved beyond just photographing weddings, and focus on capturing all life’s important moments, from Family Portraits, Corporate Headshots/Events, Senior Portraits, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs & Destination Events.

I love being a part of a larger community and giving back to my community as much as I can. I believe that we all can be of benefit to each other and help to lift each other up. I believe I can continue to do this through my voice and through photography. I also believe in the power of personal and professional growth, which is why I continue to educate myself.
