the face AND heart behind White Pine Photography. I am just a goofy girl, who is addicted to Diet Coke, loves greasy food, and obsessed with a good bargain. I am the proud mama of 4 wild boys, and am happily married to my best friend and biggest cheerleader, John.
I work hard to see the good in everything and everyone and can easily cry at a commercial. I laugh pretty loud, especially at my own jokes and I am sure to say something a bit inappropriate when I first meet you. I am super weird with compliments. I have the messiest car you have ever seen and love music. Life is meant to be FUN, and I try not to take it too seriously.
I try to prepare parents to just let them be themselves and not get stressed over the chaos because I LOVE the chaos. It's hard to let go of the expectations of a perfect session and just let the kids be wild and play but my favorite part is when parents just laugh with their kids and let go of that normal fear of bad photos, and just be with their kids, or spouse. I love sending galleries full of cuddles, laughter and love. Hearing moms gasp as they see how beautiful they look when they play with their babies is my all time favorite feeling.
I firmly believe ice cream should never be turned down. I am the friend you ask to go get coffee with you, and I'll be there rambling about photography, and mom life. I picked up a camera to get cute shots of my kids and that hobby turned into a passion, and then transformed into a career that I love. I recently took on the role of mentor and teacher in this industry and let me just tell ya- my heart is FULL!
