About Me

Family farm in Illinois

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. The only way to do great work is to love what you do.” ~Steve Jobs

It was in the College of Design’s Landscape Architecture program at NC State that I first realized I had the potential for creativity and a good eye for design. Though I am formally trained as a landscape architect, many events conspired and collided in the universe that led me down the path to become a photographer. As with many things in life, it wasn’t what I had planned; but I know it is where I am supposed to be.

I live in the country just east of Raleigh, NC, with my husband Wes and our adorable dog Cash. The country has always had a special place in my heart since I grew up in the Midwest and my family roots are solidly planted in the farmland of rural Illinois. While I spend my days working on my photography, playing with my dog, and going to the barn, my husband spends his riding on trains.
