now Booking 2021 Portraits & 2021/2022 Weddings!

I've loved taking pictures for as long as I can remember. 

I hate to imagine the amount of money my mother spent developing roll after roll of film.

When I was 13, I was trusted with capturing my Grandma & Grandpa's 50th anniversary party and I fell in love with photography even more. It is the best feeling to capture people's natural interactions and knowing they can keep a piece of that moment forever. 

Topeka Wedding & Portrait Photographer

This is why weddings are where I choose to focus my energy. There is nothing quite like the love, tears, laughter, and joy captured on a wedding day.

I incorporate this same style in my family portraits, as well. While a nice posed family picture is always included I also make sure to capture families in fun, playful, and unscripted moments. 

My ultimate goal is always to capture raw, candid, joyful moments. 

The best feeling of all is leaving a session and having clients tell me "Wow, that was so much fun!"

 I hope that everyone who spends time in front of my camera walks away feeling this happy! 

I am married to the best man I've ever known, Jared - he plays a large role behind the scenes with Lenses & Lace Photography and has also started second shooting with me. Our goal is for him to learn video and to be able to include that in wedding packages within the next 2 years. Planning our wedding in the middle of a pandemic was one of the most stressful things I've ever dealt with but certainly opened my eyes to what brides have to go through in the amount of vendor contact and coordination for the big day and I hope this new understanding helps me better serve my clients.

I'm also the mama to two wonderful kiddos - Paul & Lizzy, as well as our two fur babies - Midnight & Lucy, our snake - Nagini, fish - Isosceles Kramer, and a couple hundred nameless shrimp! 

Outside of photography ...

• I love to dance and will definitely be doing so at your wedding reception.
• I love to read, mostly crime and thriller novels.
• I have lived in 3 different countries.
• Pizza, chocolate, and Netflix are three of my favorite things.
• I can't touch cotton balls, fleece, or anything with that yucky texture.
