Life is too short to spend it hidden in a crowd.  Find your own sunshine, stand tall, and ruffle a few feathers in your journey!

"Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still."      Dorothea Lange

My roots are in Bossier City, Louisiana.  I am a daughter, a wife, and a friend.  I love to grow beautiful flowers, cook meals fit for a football team, and host parties.  I'm in my element when I'm in the pool, and as you can tell, I love flamingos!

My fascination with photography began as a young child.  My grandmother had a large coat box filled with pictures under the bed in the guest room where I would sleep.  I would spend hours thumbing through these photos.  I remember very well wondering who these people were, what their story was, and where they had gone.  I loved studying the clothes, the homes, the cars.... all things I didn't see in everyday life.  It was like a family history lesson where the photos were the professor.  I was hooked! 

Fast-forward 35 years and I began creating my own box of memories.  I started photographing friends' children and family events, and the word got out.  That's when I began a small side gig in photography for the public. Seven years later, I decided to leave the corporate world of foodservice sales, and here I am.  Photography has been fun... perpetually challenging and rewarding.  I love staring at an image knowing that someday it will be in a grandmother's box, just waiting for a young child to pick it up and try to figure out the story behind it. 

I consider my photography to be very classic.  I enjoy creating portraits that can withstand the test of time, and I always strive to create an image that represents the true spirit of my subject.  Whether she is soft-spoken and gentle, or free-spirited with the soul of a dancer, I want people to see that in her portrait.  

Thanks for stopping in, and I hope we can work together soon!
