Things to know about me:
-I am a photographer, a mother, a wife, and a chocolate lover.
-I have a degree in photography, but it was almost a degree in Theatre (Stage Management to be exact.)
-I have been published internationally, nationally and locally.
-I love to learn, including about those around me. If I ask a lot of questions please don't think I am weird. I really do want to hear about your kids.
-I love a good "how we became a family" or " how we fell in love" story. I think taking pictures is the best job in the world. I get to capture precious memories so that these memories can be relived time and time again. How cool is that?!
-I believe every child , every family, and every love is a reason to celebrate. No matter how you became a family - you did become a family . That is a reason enough to honor the love you share.
-I love photographing performance - dance and theater in particular. A few of the groups I have been fortunate enough to have photographed are Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, Cincinnati Shakespeare Company, Ensemble Theater of Cincinnati, The Children's Theater of Cincinnati, The Cincinnati Ballet, ArtsWave, The Cincinnati Fringe Festival, OTRimprov, True Theater, NKU, Pones Inc , The Carnegie, Falcon Theater, The Incline Theater, and the Covedale Theater. Ask me about any of them and I will babble for hours. Cincinnati has some amazing arts organizations.
