A few things about me:

- I am a girl mom and police wife
- Enneagram 1 over here!
- Iced coffee is a year-round beverage
- I was a fine art & education major
- I have a crazy german shepherd and two black cats with some interesting rescue stories

Above everything else, I love being a wife and a mother. My family is the most important part of my life. Meet my handsome husband, Jacob, and our two sweet girls! You can find us grabbing lunch at a local sushi restaurant, boating on a hot summer day, and spending days playing and snuggling with our babies. 

I love days on the water, mountain views, and a good whiskey cocktail. I am known to find the humor in anything, take charge when need be, and have as much fun as possible. 

About Me

< back

Literally LOVED my experience with Ariel. Ariel was super patient and told us exactly how to pose and made us laugh and told us how “cute” we were which made us feel super comfortable the WHOLE time! I told Ariel my vision and she brought it to life. I’ll forever cherish my photos from Ariel!

Ariel is AMAZING. I might be one of the most awkward people in the world, but she somehow managed to make me feel completely comfortable & it was a maternity shoot! She literally got into bushes to capture the right shot. She goes above and beyond! Seriously. All my photos will be done by her!!
