My teaching career started back in 2001, helping undergraduates learn math and statistics in both online and traditional classrooms. In 2008 we decided to relocate to the Foothills of Colorado and shortly after the birth of my daughter, I pivoted towards a career as a photographer.


In 2013 I offered my first lifestyle family photography workshop online, reigniting my role as an educator. I have mentored hundreds of photographers wanting to learn how to build their own lifestyle + documentary family photography businesses. My mom is just happy I am still putting my degrees and college education to good use ;)
