Welcome Guide: Family

-Viv, Laugh, Love-

Welcome! I'm so excited to share with you a little of what I do and who I am. In no particular order I’m a wedding and weightlifting photographer, mom, and wife. I’m mostly known for my photojournalistic approach to documenting weddings in addition to the images I've created for the sport of weightlifting. I love connecting with people through the work I do, and I live for stories to share with the world! When I am not photographing weddings, I am

traveling to places like Germany and Central Asia to photograph Olympic weightlifting (who even am I?). Hanging in my office is a map of the world that says, “Where in the World is Viv?!” Ha! In between traveling and editing photos, I spend my days with my family and my crazy dog, Kanzi.



Children’s Portraits are Everything!

With a bachelors in elementary education and masters in special education, it’s no surprise that I love photographing families and children. I was a teacher for 12 years and left my career and followed my artistic heart to photography. I’ve been here since.

I am mother as well. I have two beautiful children and rarely do they let me take their photos. The irony in that is the best!

I love photographing children because they are who they are. They smile because life is good. Snack or nap time is normally around the corner and their priority in life is playing and laughing. I’m all about that and love how children can remind us adults to chill out when life becomes heavy.

Family sessions are few during the summer and fall months since weddings fill up my calendar. However, I try my best to accommodate requests.
