I am a busy mom of three, who loves to tell a story of connection and the moment... I have been doing this since I was teaching art and yearbook at a high school in California. Our family moved to Cincinnati in 2016 and I have loved learning what it means to thrive and raise little people here. I started taking pictures of my own family and friends from day to day, telling our story, drawn to light, movement, love and connection, I work to see those moments in the people and families I work with now. I want to tell your story. I strive to show everyone their best selves. As you look at the images I have captured for years to come, I want you to look back on those moments and remember how precious they were; Especially babies and children who are only so tiny for such a short time. As a teacher, I gained valuable experience working with children and as a mother and postpartum doula, I worked closely with young babies, learning the secrets of baby whispering and soaking in all that wonderful baby smell.
