About Me…

Photography has been my passion for over 30 years. It began in high school. Staging photos, developing 35mm b/w film in a darkroom, and being recognized as a top videographer. I entered a contest against seniors in college, taking home two 1st place awards and an award of distinction ~ this gave me the confidence to continue pursuing my love of photography.

I am an International Award-Winning Photographer in Leesburg Va.  I have several badges. One image “Lincoln’s Tiny Foot” won an award for Round 2, this was the largest round ever recorded with AFNS – there were over 1500 entries!  I was awarded a silver badge in AFNS PRIME contest (where only winners of previous contests can enter.)  Photo Crowd held a contest titled “Anne Geddes Inspired” I knew that was right up my ally since Anne Geddes is the inspiration to all my images, I entered 6 images (hoping at least one might place) all 6 images were awarded “expert commended”  I was also awarded Summerana’s Top Photographer in April, my winning image was from my Fun with Food Session and I call the image Fruit Loops with Amiyah.  I am truly honored, it is not easy to win in any of these competitions!

I am a mother of twins, and comfortable handling multiple babies at once. My son Jackson is on the autism spectrum, so I understand the difficulties that arise with sensory issues, over stimuli and the need to be patient. I am closely involved with local groups of parents that have children with disabilities and operate a support group for parents of kids with autism. I am a strong advocate for child safety and specialize in “sensory friendly” no flash photography.
