I’m a glass half full kind of girl.

I believe that it’s always possible to see the positive side of a situation. I feel so grateful for many things in my life: a husband who is my rock (and the nicest guy you’ll ever meet), a happy & healthy family, a cute-as-can-be dog who naps by my side on a daily basis, and a job that feels like a dream. I like to surround myself with positive people – real, true, authentic people.

I’m a city girl at heart. I love living close enough to NYC to visit regularly. If I had the opportunity to move there, I would, in a heartbeat. I’m an organizational junkie. I have been known to organize my organizational supplies. I’m a sucker for anything gold – jewelry, notepads, office supplies. Gold organizational supplies? They rock my world. I love to eat. I could probably survive on cereal alone. I’m not talking the healthy kind – the more sugar, the better. It’s kind of embarrassing how quickly I can polish off a box of Lucky Charms.

A confession: I am obsessed with makeup. Buying makeup, experimenting with makeup, following makeup blogs – I love anything and everything about it. My guilty pleasure is watching makeup tutorials on YouTube. I can get sucked in for hours. Stores like Sephora are dangerous to my wallet.

My friendships mean the world to me – I definitely believe in quality over quantity on that front. I’ve had the same best friend since 6th grade. In college, I lived with 7 girls. Everyone warned us that we’d hate each other by the end of the year. The opposite happened, and we’re still the closest of friends to this day.

I love capturing, documenting, creating something that’s amazing and heartfelt, together. It’s such an honor to be invited into people’s lives, photographing them at their most important milestones. Holding a camera makes me feel alive. It gives me the “this is what I am supposed to be doing with my life” kind of feeling.
