Okay so now that you know a few of my guilty pleasures...

here’s some random facts.

When did I start photography?
- I started in 2012 after my second son was born. I despised the pictures we got of my first born at a box store and wasn’t the most pleased with our wedding experience. So I thought this was the perfect time to try it out and see what I could do.

How long have I been married?
- My husband Kenny and I started dating in 2009 after being friends for a few years and then got Married in March of 2011.

What is my life like with kids?
- HECTIC! Listen I’m not one to sugar coat life. Parenting is straight up the hardest thing I’ve ever done and ever will do. I love it of course but is challenges my soul every single day! I have two boys 9 and 7 and a baby girl who turned 1 in February. I love their age gap and the dynamic they all have together, it makes for very interesting days to say the least but man are they so dang cute to that baby girl!

What’s it like running a business?
- mmm so much to say! Honestly I love the challenge but I’m constantly learning. Every single day learning more and more on how to be successful and how to succeed in this business. I believe no matter how successful you are, you’ve always got more to learn. I love being my own boss but I am definitely not here alone. I have a team behind me that helps me run my business because I can’t know it all and do it all and that’s totally ok! 

i'd love to meet you! let's chat!
