I love creating stunning works of art, whether it’s through photography, graphic design or painting.  Also. my obsession with glitter is exceptionally strong.  My husband Rob is my rock and is an amazing father!  My daughter made us a family and bring so much joy to our lives.  I can’t live without them…. or caffeine.

Rob is so wonderful, and not only is he the yin to my yang, but he can reach the stuff on the top shelf for me (I’m just under 5 feet tall). But don’t let my short stature sell me short – ha! – I may be small, but I think B I G ! ! !

We’ve been married for 12 years but have an amazing friendship in its third decade…. so we’re pretty much high school sweethearts! And we have a super smart, sweet little girl that blows our minds everyday! She fills our hearts with so much love it’s crazy!! I’m also sleep deprived, so I basically live on coffee + Mt Dew…. aaand the occasional Red Bull.

These are my people! They are my everything!!!

I have been a creative spirit ever since my mom taught me how to draw kitties + puppies before I started pre-school, and I’ve always had a super big imagination. All through school, art was my favorite subject. I had first-hand experience in film photography in elementary and middle school, and I always loved painting, drawing, and creating mixed media art (my favorite art genre next to photography!) and sculptures.

I didn’t get into digital photography until my early-mid 20’s, but it was mostly landscape, architecture and abstract photography… the thought of photographing people scared the crap out of me! (ha!) It wasn’t until I took photography classes as part of my graphic design degree that my love for photography re-ignited, but this time I wasn’t so scared of portrait work.

My passion for creativity and the arts turned into my life calling. I find so much joy and fulfillment in helping others through my creativity and vision! My artistry has evolved through the years into creative storytelling + emotive photography, thus, Sugar Plum Creative was born!!
