I am a Sarasota based photographer, a planner, a shopper, a chocaholic, a friend, a sister, a daughter, a wife, and above all, I am a mother.

Like a lot of you out there, I had fallen into the routine of using my cell phone to take photos of my son, and one day realized, “These pictures really aren’t that great!” I wanted to be able look back in ten years and see the bright colors of the park as he was playing, every small detail of his face as he laughed, and capture a clear vision of his expression as he ate avocado for the first time. So it was my son, Mason, who cultivated my fascination for photography and inspired me to want to not only capture all of his special moments, but be able to do that for other people as well.

I look forward to helping you chronicle your special moments into photos that will last a lifetime. 

Mason James is my Son!  Because of the name of my company a lot of people think my name is Mason, but that is actually my oldest son. I have another son named Wylder who was born long after I started my business and often wonder how I am going to explain to him one day the company is named after his older brother. I thought of coming up with a tagline to include him like “Life is “Wyld”....capture it through photos”

I'll take whatever your kids are eating! I don’t like vegetables or fruits or my food touching at all. I ordered grilled cheese at restaurants until I was into my 20s!

I Eat Like a Toddler

Friends Forever

I like to keep my friends around a long time:) I have known my best friend since Kindergarten and my other since college. Most of my best friends now are from college as well!

Go Knights!

I graduated from UCF in Orlando. When I was in school there was no stadium on campus so it was much different than it is now!

I Love Target

I have a small target problem. I like to go at least 2 times a week. Totally normal right?
