Are you a morning or evening person? Definitely evening. I’m ashamed to admit it but I’d sleep until 10 every day if I could.

Coffee or tea? Coffee, iced lattes in the spring/summer and 3 pump, nonfat, pumpkin spice lattes in the fall/winter.

What’s your favorite comfort food? Mashed potatoes with lots of butter. Yum!

Something that’s overrated: Saying that things are “amazeballs.” That is not a word. What is up with that?

Something that’s underrated: Cute flats. Why are all cute shoes heels? I’m on an eternal hunt for non-boring flats.

Website/blog(s) you visit daily: Facebook. Crappy Pictures – I don’t even have kids and this site cracks me up. Smitten Kitchen – I’ve recently started cooking more and this site is great for inspiration, although it makes me a little sad that my kitchen never looks as neat as her’s when I’m cooking.

Who is the photographer that inspires you most? Top on my list would probably be Tara Whitney; her photos just have such an easy feel. My dream is to have kids and then have her photograph my family.

Tell us about your very first shoot: If we’re going non-paid, my first shoot was 4 friends, in a park in 80s prom dresses. I think my style has evolved a bit since then. 🙂

What is the one thing in your bag you would throw yourself in front of a speeding train for? All of it. I’d tell the train to take me and save my gear. Just kidding!

I am passionate about: If I could, I’d have a huge house full of rescued animals. As it is, I have two dogs and two cats!

To tweet or not to tweet: Well, considering I don’t even have a twitter account I’m going to have to say “not to tweet.” I wish I were better about social networking, but it’s just not my thing.

What are the top 5 things on your “photographer’s wish list”?

Natural light studio. That is all.

What do you find most difficult about being a photographer?
Most difficult is definitely the feeling of constantly having something that I could be doing; a photo to edit, an email to respond to, an order to place. It can be a bit exhausting.

What do you find most rewarding?
The most rewarding thing is working with my clients. There are not too many jobs where people pay you and then write you a thank you note. It’s pretty great.
