Well Hello, welcome to my page newcomers, friends and clients! I am so glad you came for a visit!
Whether it’s meeting over coffee, bonding at an engagement session, or skyping about wedding planning, I absolutely LOVE getting to know my clients. I believe it’s a super important part of the photography process– it helps us get more comfortable with eachother, makes the photographs more personal, and it’s one of the reasons I love what I do. Unfortunately, it isn’t always the easiest thing to meet up to get to know eachother (this year I’m photographing people from Utah, New York City, New Hampshire, and of course, D.C/Virgina) but I always do my best to learn the unique story of each amazing person I have the pleasure of photographing.
So, every now and then, I like to throw in a personal post for the blog because yes, pretty pictures are great, but I want y’all to know me as more than just a photographer! Here are 15 facts you probably did not know about me. If you feel inclined, share and comment 5 fun facts about yourself! I love meeting new friends and I am sure by the end of this, we will have something in common!
Lets connect! Follow me on Facebook, Instagram or here on the website!
1.I LOVE BLACK/WHITE STRIPED THINGS
I think I have more striped clothing than most people. B/W is one of my favorite color combinations
2.I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE HANSON BROTHERS
From the 90's onward my love for them still lives on. I got to meet them when I was like 8 and all I could do was STARE... didn't say a word... I was just staring. Do I know ALL of the words to ALL of their songs... MAYBE
3.I AM A TEA WHORE
There is nothing better than a cute mug and a warm cup of tea+honey
4.I LOVE POINTY SHOES- MOST OF MY SHOES ARE ONLY POINTED ONES
What? They make your legs look longer and they are just fierce!
5.I HAVE A NEEDLE PHOBIA- LIKE REAL BAD
It is just a needle phobia in my arms... anywhere else is fair game. I have had needles in my hips, hands, face, and feet and its A-OKAY. I cry and hyperventilate
6. MY FAVORITE COLOR IS MUSTARD YELLOW
Its a happy color- hence the color of everything on my website
7. BANANA STRINGYS GROSS ME OUT- GAG
I think the strings that come off of bananas are absolutely GROSS- They make me gag and sometimes if its a "good" one I have to have someone else peel it off for me...
8. I LOVE BOWS- ON EVERYTHING
Whether its clothing, cakes, bags or shoes- I love bows! They make me happy. My mother is the TRUE bow tie-er though...
9. I LOVE BOXING AND THE UFC
My father was a fighter and growing up as a little girl I would stay up and watch the fights with him. I love the sport.
10. MY FAVORITE DESIGNER IS BETSEY JOHNSON
She is a RAD 74 YEAR OLD lady who makes the best fashion in all the land- its fun, bright, and quirky - Did I mention she does cartwheels and splits at the end of each fashion show?

He is such a charismatic and interesting character in history. I have read book after book about his life and each time it makes me love him more. WHAT A DUDE.
12. I AM OBSESSED WITH THE SHOW VIKINGS
I mean Travis Fimmel alone--- HOT TA TA!! . The action and history is also pretty cool- I am proud History Channel made it somewhat historically accurate

I love cupcakes. NUFF SAID. I bake cupcakes for my office every other week and I can never resist a good cupcake... ever - Some of my favorites are Pink Strawberry Champagne, Dirty Chai and Unicorns & Rainbows
My favorite cupcake place of ALL Time is Baked and Wired in D.C.- Hands down the best cupcakes AROUND<3
14. I REALLY REALLY REALLY WANT AN ENGLISH BULL DOG
I am kind of obsessed. One day I will get a baby boy puppy and name him Nigel. We will be the BEST of friends. I am also putting it out there that I want to photograph one--- it would make my day!

Beautiful scenery, nature hikes for days, Nordic history and lets not forget the puffins
