What I’ll be doing this year

Each year the ball drops at midnight, we change out our calendars, and we make all kinds of promises about how, this year, our resolutions are going to happen. Ambitious goals of traveling more, or weighing less seem to burrow out of sight at about the time the groundhog surfaces to check for his shadow. While I’ve never been super into New Year’s resolutions, there’s one thing about this year I do know — I am hopelessly devoted to serving you.

In the past, I’ve been known to show myself in waves. Sometimes with an active social media presence, then with dips into online anonymity as I’ve focused on my studies and professional growth. I’m obsessed with being the student and absolutely love learning as much as I can to be better, for you. I’ve had the time and flexibility to do so, so why not?

This year, time and flexibility aren’t really a thing. This year, my family is moving on from Clovis, this amazing place we’ve called home for the last ten years, and we’re relocating to the Pacific Northwest. Now we have a deadline.


In the months we have left, I’m dedicated to spending as much time as possible on you. My focus will be on creative collaborations with the brilliant professionals of Eastern New Mexico I’ve come to know (and love), and engaging with those still left to meet. I’m on a one-woman mission to share with you the extent of my passion for portraiture and creating meaningful, printed keepsakes to be appreciated and shared for years to come.

So here’s what you can expect from me:


All new sessions

At the top end, I have a couple portraiture packages that include a professionally printed photo album and a USB with digital images. Portrait albums are, by far, my most popular product; I rarely work with a client that doesn’t go home with one.


More Specials

It’s all about you. While in Clovis, I aim to spread the love as much as I can and to give you a session you won’t forget so that means special photography offerings and the occasional giveaway (I kind of love gifts and surprises).



There are a few fun projects with friends in the planning stages right now. If you're a creative and you'd like to meet up or work together on a project, please reach out and let me know!

It’s bittersweet to be leaving Clovis, as I’ve had the privilege of working with some of the most amazing professionals and clients over the years. Now that we’re sure it’s coming to an end, there’s no time to waste! I’m crazy excited and totally committed to spending as much time as I possibly can on you  :)
