I work as a documentary birth photographer and freelance graphic designer in North Carolina. I have a passion for babies, and love working with families from maternity to birth and through the first year of life. I create logos, brands and custom designs for businesses and for photography clients.

After growing up in Illinois, I earned my Bachelor of Journalism with a focus in design and graphics from the top-ranked University of Missouri. I have worked as a writer and visual journalist for newspapers in Missouri, Colorado and South Carolina. While at Missouri, my designs earned first place for sports page design, first place for infographics design and third place for daily designer of the year in the SSND College Design Contest.

Besides great design and photography, I find joy in art, travel, writing, and cooking and eating great food. Above all, I adore every aspect of life with my family. My husband, Jeffery, and I have four sweet children: Jackson, Lauren, Colin and Dylan.
