She is a believer in the experience of a photo session, something that can be remembered for years to come. She is has mastered natural light but can also change gears and use different light techniques that took years to learn.

She loves long walks, classic rock music, bike rides, drinking wine, snow storms, laughter with old friends, going on dates with her husband, and getting lost in a good film.

Driven and an determined by heart, she started a second business in 2014: PIXEL and boutique coming in 2019. An all natural plant based, bath and body shop and women & girls clothing line. Which started as just a small side business, has grown to expansion in 2019. The cool and interesting part is not only she has created beautiful works of art in her studio, she has also created this second business in the same building and gave her product cool names like: Oh Snap, Capture and Lightroom.
