I’ve been told on more than one occasion that I talk like a California Surfer Girl. Stoked, Dude, Totally and Rad are words you will frequently hear from me, although I am a proud Oregon Girl who has never surfed a day in her life. I am a simple girl who loves the smell of fresh rain, playing Fantasy Football and Twilight… yeah, I’m smitten. American Eagle Favorite Boyfriend jeans, Indie Rock, and cupcakes, I am convinced, make the world a better place. If quoting movies was an Olympic Sport- I would get the gold. Twice. I have watched Easy A, The Devil Wears Prada, Mean Girls, The Notebook, Sixteen Candles, 27 Dresses and Dirty Dancing more times than I can count. And the Twilight movies? Well, lets just say, there isn’t a week that goes by that I don’t see Bella, Edward & Jacob. I am addicted to Reality TV, my iPhone, Mrs. Pac-Man and Lemonade Popsicles. I could eat Mexican food everyday and never complain, preferably Mucho Gusto & Chipotle. My heart belongs to Maui, where our family had the greatest vacation- one day, hopefully soon, we will be reunited with that glorious island in the sun.

My REAL name is Spanki! I will go by just about anything…Stacy, Becky, and Sparky are what I get the most often. (I guess no one really thinks they hear right when I say Spank). I am thirty “something” mother of 4 (if you don’t include my husband who acts 12 most of the time)! I have 3 boys one 11yr old, twin 10yr olds, and a daughter AKA the “boss” who is 5 (and to think I was told I couldn’t have children) pshhh! I am no good at math, or spelling…I tend to make up words. My poor friends and family have learned they have to de-code me! I have no problem laughing at myself! I sing really good when my radio is REALLY loud, I still think I can cheer just as good as the girls who actually FIT in their uniform, and their is never a dance competition I won’t break it down in! I am a self taught photographer, who loves photography for the memories it captures. I wish I could be the “artist” that can cry over an image…nope, not me, I am just the who had always had a camera in hand not wanting to forget a moment in time I knew I’d never get back!

If you want the absolute best, you have come to the right place.

FUNNY tidbits …
Here are a few things about the gal behind the lens: I am the loudest person I know, things that make me very happy include my husband and kiddos, my daily (yes, daily) skinny iced hazelnut lattes, pedicures with rhinestones, and ice cream topped with gummi bears. I love the idea of organizing better than I keep up with it. My favorite movie is Breakfast at Tiffanys. I could spend all day in Sephora and find myself constantly buying the same color of lip gloss everywhere I go. I have too many shoes and black shirts. Sometimes I just put in my Pilates DVD and watch the ladies on the TV do the exercises! Want to know more? Ok … I could be convinced to buy anything with polka dots. My favorite color is orange. I can’t cook to save my life — one of the ba-zillion reasons I married my wonderful hubby! I like big hair. I love my friends and family. My favorite day of the year is Christmas Eve. Things that annoy me are rude people and bad cell phone connections. I love to watch my babies sleep. There is a photo of me holding a camera (backwards) when I was two years old trying to take a picture. I would be lost without my iPhone. And last but not least photography is my absolute passion in life and I hope to share it with you!
