about the

I currently live in Dayton, OH with my husband, Matt, my daughter, Kate, and our mutt-ly crue of three. As a military wife, I am constantly moving and traveling to new places, but California will always be home. Much of my work is influenced by the days of growing up and living around Central and Southern California. When I’m not working, I’m spending time with Kate, snuggling with my dogs and binge watching Netflix with a glass (or bottle) of wine. I adore couples who come to me with ideas, who are kind-hearted and adventurous and just like to have fun!
