Hey friends, I'm so glad you're here!

With years of experience capturing life and emotion in pictures, I crave the sound of the shutter snapping a memory that will now last a life time. I started Lifeshots in 2008. My goal with each session is to remember the passion, emotion, generation and reason of that moment. The most important thing to me, aside from producing beautiful quality images, are the relationships that are shown through them. It is also important to me to form good relationships with my clients, especially the kiddos, because trust goes a long way to open people up to genuine images. I can't wait to capture you and your family!

A Kansas native, born in 1985, turned Missouri gal, I graduated from Central High School in 2003, and received a BA from Missouri Western State University in 2007. Currently, I live in St. Joseph, with my husband, Paul. We enjoy evenings at The K watching our boys in blue, time spent with our beloved nieces and nephews, and late night episodes of M*A*S*H. Lifeshots has allowed me to create and capture images on that professional level - challenging me to step outside of myself to feel the emotional connection between the subject and the moment. After all, it's your life... and your photos.
