Bio

- I am a wife and a mommy to two children who keep me on my toes everyday
- I love to sing, but only do it with my kids

- I love being in front of the camera as much as behind it :)
- I am obsessed with high heels and formal gowns but have absolutely nowhere to wear them
- I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my job as a photographer, but do not like the business end of it so much
- Even after ten years, I still get nervous while shooting a photography job
- I eat primarily a plant-based diet, no animal products.
- I LOVE my mother-in-law, whereas most women are not that blessed
- I have a paper/stationery addiction
- I am very shy when it comes to large groups, but when I get comfortable look out. I LOVE people.
- I went to Kisumu, Kenya in October 1998 with an organization called Operation Smile and we gave 71 patients new smiles
- I LOVE Ghirardelli's Toasted coconut candy chocolate bars.
- I am a very messy person and struggle all the time with keeping my house clean
