About me…Well I’m the wife of an amazing husband (and sometimes assistant), mom to two great kids, step mom to two more great kids. I have the best grand daughters in the entire world, two little girls named Addyson and Rilynn.

I have been working as a professional photographer for just over six years now and July 2016 became a Certified Professional Photographer as well as entered IPC print competitions to start the Master of Photography and Photographic Craftsman process through the PPA which I received January 21, 2019. I am excited to be a part of the Miller’s Professional Image Speaking Team.

Though the awards are nice, nothing beats knowing my clients love their images. I sincerely hope that I get the honor of working with you and your family to help you create memories you can cherish for years to come.
