From the Phoenix Arizona Portrait photographer :
I am the mother of three children, with my youngest being 7 and my oldest at 22 years old; I’m a military mom, an entrepreneur, and a wife. Throughout my career, I’m continually joined or been invited to several professional organizations. Such as, I’m a proud member of the “Professional Photographers of Arizona”, “Newbornphotography.com”, “International Newborn Photography Association”, and “Best Newborn Photographers”.
My formal photography education began while I studied Photography at the Academy of the Arts, San Francisco, CA. Education also hasn’t stopped and continues to be my focus, with numerous hands-on workshops several classes geared towards newborn posing and safety, infant first aid and CPR. I aspire to provide the very best classic custom newborn, maternity, child, and family portraiture. In a safe comfortable environment, you and your family can relax in and enjoy. As a mom, I understand the importance of capturing the smallest details and the importance of preserving imperative moments that you want to keep for a lifetime and beyond.
Fun Facts about me:
As a very picky eater, most of my friends and family tease me, I’m known for ordering my burger with bun, meat, and cheese only. You will never find me near an onion! My sister compares me to father in “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”, Windex fixes everything. I am addicted to The Real Housewives of any county, especially Orange and New Jersey. Other fun facts: I have double-jointed elbows and I can jump rope like nobodies business. In elementary school, I was in “Arizona Jump It” and can still jump rope as I did back then! Except now its fun to do at parties. Most importantly though, I love my family, my husband, and my kids. There is not a day that goes by that I do not thank them and God for blessing me with the opportunity to do what it is that I love.
Thank you for stopping in and reviewing my work! I hope to work with you and yours!
