A portrait photographer passionate about storytelling through the art of photography.  Rooted in the younger years of my daughter playing soccer, I was determined to capture all of her many accomplishments along her journey. Unknowingly this would be my prelude to photography. Since that time my love for photography has  grown and been one of the most rewarding parts of my life. I have had the opportunity to highlight incredibly enchanting couples, special birthday's and many other wonderful milestones we cherish so much. I believe in the  genuine connection with every person that photograph. For this reason, I was elated when presented with the opportunity to bring awareness to the equestrians of color. Motivated by the idea to help and encourage minorities to share their stories, and enlighten all...to their talents and love they share of  Equine lifestyle in their own words.  I am honored to support and be an ally.
