Kansas bred. Brooklyn borne.

I was raised in a town of 150 people in Kansas. (That's me above on the right getting a perm with my sister. What else did we have to do around there besides make crazy decisions about our hair?). Despite now feeling 100% at home in Brooklyn I am still a small-town girl at heart. 

I know my neighbors and always say hello. I sometimes get overwhelmed in rush-hour subway cars that hold about as many people as my hometown. I love watching football (Go Chiefs!) and hosting parties. One of my deepest passions in life is what I'm going to eat for dinner, and I'm excited about all of it from the soup-can casseroles to the multi-course tasting menus at too-trendy restaurants. 

I share the adventure of big city living with my husband, a writer who is also from Kansas. We spend our days off together walking the neighborhoods of NYC, reading, going to the theater, planning travel adventures and making up cocktails from our home bar.

I was never that little girl who grew up planning her wedding day (I had many other adventures in mind first), yet now I truly love being a part of my clients' weddings. I actually get excited about capturing your love. I may cry at your vows, I'll get gushy when you take each others' hands, and I will definitely hit the dance floor hard during the reception with my camera in hand. I'd be downright honored to be part of this day in the story of your life.
