I fumbled around with cameras throughout my childhood and had the good fortune to sign up for photography in high school, where I bought my first SLR (a Nikon F3) and fell in love.  I found solace in the red-lit darkroom (and in the all-dark darkroom when rolling film, my hands still remember!).  I mastered my little film camera and have been shooting ever since.  I graduated from Duke University with a Bachelors in Fine Art and afterwards taught photography (in that little darkroom I fell in love with) for two years before getting lost in other interests and careers.  

I have come back behind the lens as I've transitioned into parenthood and enjoy the time I get to quietly pour over images again.  I love to document the love, light, and frustrations of life.  Together, it makes life even sweeter.  Family life is full of it all; as a mom of a preschooler and an infant, I know!. I love to meet new people and make new friends - give a call and let's make some magical memories together... and with the photographs you'll even be able to remember them!
