Thanks for stopping by!

I’ve always enjoyed quotes. They’ve inspired me, encouraged me and often evoked a particular emotion or feeling. I find beauty and intrigue in the simplicity of their ability to capture my attention in just a simple phrase. Quotes tell a story. They are a verbal or written snapshot of a specific moment of time that can’t be redone or duplicated and yet when quoted have the ability to bring about those same emotions as when it first took place.

Photography is a vessel that allows me the privilege of capturing the moments that tell your story, a history, a personal unique and individual time that can’t be repeated or reproduced. My hope is that the story told in your photographs will allow you in years from now to share the original feelings your special day evoked with a world that otherwise wouldn’t have been able to experience it, feelings of pure joy, excitement, anticipation, pleasure, friendship and of love.

There is a story waiting to be told between each set of quotations and since pictures speaks a thousand words... let's give the world your stories.

I hope you enjoy the blog and seeing my work in a little more detail!

Some very exciting changes are happening with On the Mantle Photography! Starting with a new website, blog and even changing my direction and focus!

Over the past few years I have been honored to photograph some incredible weddings and as I get ready to embark on my new photographic adventure I’m sad to say goodbye to that chapter as I start focusing on bellies, babies and families. I am SO excited,especially with the upcoming arrival of our own little munchkin in November. I can’t wait to start practicing on him or her and bringing my love of photography from new beginning in marriage to new beginnings in life.

I hope you’ll enjoy what you see and I look forward to be a part of your new adventures, if you’ll be a part of mine 🙂

Hugs!
