Hi! Thanks for visiting.


I was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico and raised in Las Cruces, New Mexico. I am a wife and a mother of two amazing little girls. My husband is in the military and his career has taken us to live in North Carolina, Germany, and now Colorado. Living in Europe was a dream come true and I became addicted to traveling to new countries and experiencing different cultures. have never regretted a single penny spent on travel. I hope to spend the rest of my years seeing and photographing the world.


I speak enough German to get myself around. When I’m not shooting photos am learning to make tasty cocktails or hiking with my dog Jack. I love to sneak up and tickle my daughters when they least expect it. Laughter makes my heart happy!


I’m currently based in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Drop me a line! Let’s talk, laugh, and make photos!s
