PHOTOGRAPHER, EDUCATOR & COACH WHO BELIEVES THAT

Every busy, juggling mama can build a manageable & profitable business

I have the heart of a teacher, the eye of a photographer, and the foggy mind of a Mom! Whether I'm capturing love stories for 'Breezy Brides' and they're sweethearts, coaching other business owners to reach their "side hustle" goals, or just simply sharing the everyday chaos of life with three boys, I want my presence to better the lives of others!

I'm so glad you've found my online home! If you're new here, you need to know a few things:
1. Family is my main priority! I have a blended family with 3 boys ages 8, 8 and 9!

2. I teach high school full time, run my business {full time}, commute 2.5 hours a day and juggle everything else in between!

3. I'm an Enneagram 2w3. Everything I do is fueled by a strong passion for helping others so that together, we all have room at the table!

I'm so glad you're here!
