Ope, I’m smiling my biggest, dorkiest, cheesiest smile on the inside that you’re here.
I wear a lot of (fashionable) hats in my day-to-day life, but the most important ones are wife to my husband of ten years and mama bear to my three not-so-littles. Add two dogs to the mix, and you’ll begin to understand the circus that is my life!
As a 20-something gal, I left graphic design school in favor of a camera in my hands. For nearly five years, I coached kiddos and sports teams to look there, smile here, and while I gained confidence as a photographer, the short answer is that I wanted more than artificial lighting and unnatural poses. So shortly after the birth of my daughter, Baya, came the birth of my photography business.
My favorite days are the ones where I wake up with coffee in hand (and a healthy dose of sarcasm), cook up a few presets (not actual cooking - you don’t want me to do that) for Belle & Rae Co., my mobile preset company, and soak up time behind the camera, capturing creative service providers and families like you.
Whether I’m working with your family or helping you establish your brand, I will personally ensure that you are comfortable and confident before you step in front of my lens. I’ll work side-by-side with you to pick out the perfect outfits and accessories to make your time in front of the camera nothing less than a fun and easy-going experience. Leave the awkwardness and anxiety out back - I’ve got it covered!
