Friends! Welcome to the blog!

unnamedThank you so much for taking the time to stop by, check out my work and get to know me a little bit better! I’m just a brown-eyed girl with a weird sense of humor, who is blessed to be able to do something that makes me happy.

I chose portraiture because I love being able to see someone through my lens and help to share a little bit of who they are with others. With every session that I am blessed to capture, I want to create, not just a beautiful image, but an image that speaks to the viewer; one that they can relate to and feel an emotional connection with. Soulful eyes, a smile, capturing a look between lovers; they each tell a story and it is my honor to witness them and immortalize them in a single moment.

Chasing Skies is basically my heart’s desire. To chase, means to run hard after something, to be in avid pursuit. As a location photographer, this is true of my process. I’m always looking for unique locations that showcase the beauty of natural light, racing the daylight right up to its edge. I want this to be true in my life as well. I have been so blessed to be given a life where I can do something that I love, to touch the lives of others and to create something beautiful in the process. Each day that I get to be a photographer, offers me a chance to see the world from a fresh perspective and to learn from those I want to chase avidly whatever sky God places in front of me!

Now, for some fun facts, the Nitty Gritty, if you will. If I had my way, I’d wear blue jeans every day. I snort when I laugh and my hair has a life of its own. Coffee comforts me. When I sing in my car, I “sing” the guitar solos. (But, C’mon. Who doesn’t?) I love fried pickles and mint chocolate chip ice cream. (Not together. If you want to make my day, take me shoe shopping. I know every song on Journey’s Greatest Hits album. I once quoted the entire script of The Princess Bride during a family road trip. Yes. Yes, I did.
