yep, i'm a mom with a camera

i'm a mom.. of four.. four wonderfully awesome kids.. they are what's most important to me.. and their dad, tom.. he's at the top of my list.. i adore them..  we live in Wichita, Kansas.. and, well, we love it here.. we moved back to Wichita in January 2011 after spending 5 years in Virginia.

in 2006, i started my business - as a sort of escape from my little people.. as a way to have my own thing so i didn't lose myself.. a kind of therapy you could say... the relationships and friendships I've made since starting my business are amazing...  i've loved watching families grow.. watching the kid's personalities develop.. seeing how the families change..  

for a few years, I worked way too much and missed a lot of our oldest three kids being super little.. having the opportunity to move back to Wichita, allowed me to step back from what had become a full time photography business and put my family first..  day to day is crazy busy - most of my work is done around our family time.. I'm finally learning to balance work and home - and it is working... mostly..

i take very few sessions in wichita each year.. but... i love to travel - two or three times a year i venture far, far away from Wichita and shoot families who ask me.. The Southeast is a stop at least once a year...
