My absolute hearts from left to right:

I grew up in the central part of England and moved to New York when I was 21 years old. I came on an adventure and I feel as though I'm still on it! I am married to the kindest, sweetest, man, Dave and we have 3 grown children.
I am passionate about documenting families as they grow. I have watched my three children grow into beautiful people and I am so incredibly emotional when I look through the photo's of them when they were young. They represent the most happy, special and important time of my life. I wish I had more. I wish I could stand on a soapbox and shout to the world CAPTURE THOSE SPECIAL MOMENTS - I want to capture some of those moments for you. I would love to spend some time with you and your family. Get to know you all and be able to capture your souls, the heartbeat of your precious brood. I pay attention to the little things, gestures.....that I know will mean so much later. You being the most wonderful you with your family, alone or with your loved ones. You will forget that my camera is capturing the smiles, the twinkles and the memories that will become so very precious. THAT is my dream.

I actively compete in agility with my dogs. I spend much of my summer, when not working, traveling for agility competitions. I have worked closely with dogs for the last eight years and have had the opportunity to get to know and understand their language. I pick up dogs that are left home alone all day and bring them back to my fully fenced in acreage. Here they meet and greet, run and play off leash for a few hours in a controlled environment with someone who is well versed in canine behaviour. Working with dogs every day, I am always thrilled to get to know and understand their individual personalities. Capturing each one while they are relaxed, happy and in natural light outside playing or in my studio brings a joy to my heart and a smile to my face. Every single day.
