Wife of an amazingly patient man who is my constant cheerleader. Mama to five of the brightest, most chaotic, giggle-inducing kiddos. And Lolly to one of the sweetest grandsons ever. We have called the Eastern Shore of Maryland home for the past 10 years, moving on dreams and a prayer from Texas.
Going on my 22nd year in the world of photography, I have learned and grown and am just as passionate about what I do as I was 22 years ago. Capturing the sweet newness of those first days with a newborn, the imagination and freedom that is childhood, and families finding joy in each other. 
I love to chase the light, a timeless look, and sessions during the coveted "Golden Hour". Seeking out the perfect locations for my clients and planning sessions to cater to their joys is one of my favorite things about my work.
On a personal note, I love SWEET tea and tacos and Puerto Rican foods are my love language. Baseball is life, and cheering on my family in everything they do keeps my cup overflowing.

You can never go wrong with tacos.

Nothing is better than a summer day on the beach with friends soaking up the sun!
