We travel because we need to, because distance and difference are the secret tonic to creativity. When we get home, home is still the same. But something in our mind has changed, and that changes everything.

For those of you who don't know. I am a photographer

I have been established in York, Pennsylvania since 2005 building a great client base and network of friends. Here's the announcement and letter I wrote to my clients: 

"I document lives for a living. I LOVE IT. Every time I get to photograph the love you share with that special someone on your wedding day, the giggles of your family, or the sweet yawn of a your newborn, my heart skips a beat. I get to live life with so many people and be there for the moments in life that are most precious. It always fills me with great joy.

This year, it is time for me to document my life. My husband, Kermit, and I work hard. We love what we do and love our lives, but we have the opportunity to do something amazing. We are going on an adventure, OUR big adventure. Kermit and I are headed to West to explore! 

While traveling the road for about a year, I will be back in York, PA several times a year throughout 2017. Each of these visits home will be posted well in advance so you can book your session. 

I care deeply for each of you, my clients, who have instilled in me love, friendship and a sense of family I could have never imagined. This adventure would not be possible without you.

For anyone reading this, no matter what your dreams of adventure are, they are possible. Work hard. Take a leap of faith. Know that risk is worth it.

All my love,


PS - If you are planning an adventure, tell me about it! I want to hear about your lives. If you have explored awesome states across America?  Give Kermit and me your recommendations and experiences. We want to hear about it!
