I’ve been photographing high school seniors for more than 13 years. Working with teens inspired me so much that I decided work exclusively with high school seniors.

I love learning about each and every one of my clients! I want to know all about your interests, hobbies, style, passions, & dreams. My goal is to capture your personality and individuality with my camera and showcase who you are through beautiful imagery. Throughout the entire process, I will be there every step of the way to help you select the best outfits and locations for your senior portrait session.

Rachel Zoe said, “Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.” I want to create images that say who YOU are without words!

Let's do this!

I’ve been photographing seniors for over 13 years and I love it just as much today as I did when I started it. I love learning about each senior and creating images that are authentically YOU. I try to make each senior portrait experience fun and unique from start to finish.

A little about me... I was born and raised in Northeast Ohio. When I’m not taking pictures, I love spending time with my family. I married my high school sweetheart almost 30 years ago. Our two children who, along with their significant others, and my grand-pups, Lulu, Tasha & Tippy, are my pride and joy. Whether we're going on family vacations or just watching movies or playing games, I’m happiest when I’m spending time with them.

I am shopaholic and love everything related to fashion! I also love home decorating. Tiffany blue is my favorite color, which you can tell by my company colors and literally almost everything I own. My favorites include Starbucks, Broadway Musicals and all sports - especially all the Cleveland teams!

I try not to take life too seriously and I love to make people laugh. The Kate Spade quote above is one of my favorites, as it perfectly describes my personality. I love dreaming and creating and truly believe that anything is possible!
