Welcome! You’ve found my little corner of the Internet. Stay a while, look around, see the sites, and get to know me and my photography a little better. I look forward to meeting you and helping you always remember the fun times you have.
As a native of the Alleghany Mountains of Virginia, I have always had a facination with meeting new people and learning their stories. I am very personable and can honestly claim that my best attribute is my personality.
I have worked in the resort photography business for over 18 years with Austrian born photographer Werner Gattinger, who not only became my mentor but a true lifelong friend. When Werner retired in December of 2010, I bought the business and have been crazy busy ever since and loving it!

I was born in the beautiful mountains of Virginia for a reason. I truly believe that I have the most amazing family and the most wonderful friends a girl could ever ask for. Every day I drive to work and I see sites of beauty and inspiration.
People very often ask me why or even how I could live in such a small town. I hope that my love and appreciation for the everyday beauty around me answers that question through my photography.
