My business is to

illustrator, watercolor artist, & photographer

-william blake

In 2012, I decided to join the fast-growing industry of wedding photography. Alongside my husband, we photographed for six years. Although we no longer photograph weddings, I continue to offer Couples Photography Sessions, sell my photos in my online shop, and just enjoy photographing florals, landscapes, and everyday life.

In 2014, on a rainy afternoon, I purchased my first watercolor set and decided to chase a long-awaited dream. After trying many different things, I've found so much joy in creating calendars and wall art with my paints, both watercolor and acrylic. I sell my products in my store and share the process on my Instagram page. Feel free to visit my portfolio to see more.

I developed a love for graphic design during my years of photography when I needed to create a brand for myself. I took continuing education classes in graphic design and web design, and use those skills to create calendars, illustrations, and other designs.

In my spare time, I'm usually adding another rosebush to the garden, sipping tea with a Harry Potter book in hand, writing, or taking a walk with my darling husband and three yorkies.

I'm so thrilled you're here, friend. Take time to peruse the website, or even head to the blog where I write about life on this side of the screen. xoxo
