I want to capture your story and create more beauty in the world.
I truly value every image I capture because they not only tell stories but they hold memories. They hold the love that is shared between all of us and the love of the ones that we've lost. My passion for photography grew after my first child was born, I wanted to gift her with memories of her childhood. I have a fond memories of looking through my family photos, captured on disposable cameras and developed at Walgreens. I don't have the luxury of seeing any of those photos anymore, that's a long sad story. So, I only have a small box of photos from my childhood and a handful of pictures of my parents, only one of them together. Documenting moments in my families life turned into so much more for me. An outlet for my creativity to come to life and a way to sooth my soul and that little Noel inside me. Knowing that I'm creating a lasting legacy of images for my family is priceless.
When I'm capturing your family, this is my reason and passion behind my photography. It's creating beauty but also capturing something we all hold dear.
