Hi I'm Chris

I am a wife and a mother, an aspiring photographer, a teacher, a friend, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife and a mother of four growing children. We are a busy family, but together is our favorite place to be, especially when we are camping! I believe that "moments are the molecules of eternity" and I love to capture those moments on film. I love to photograph people, and relationships, and those beautiful moments we call life. Teaching moments surround us each day and I try to make those moments count. I studied in college to become an elementary school teacher. I put my teaching career away for now and I am using that education to help my children through school and to give them the tools they will need to find success and be happy as they grow up. I also spend time each month with a group of girls, ages 8-11, learning and having fun as we develop our faith in the Savior together. While in my freshman year of college, while finding myself, I found God. And I became a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I searched for truth and found it. I was an agnostic atheist meaning I did not believe in the existence of any god, but I could not say that one did not exist. Evidence had never been conclusive enough for me to say either way. Then one day my friend told me this great story and I found myself on my knees in prayer to an unknown God seeking the truth of that story. I am a Mormon because when I took a chance with an open mind and heart, the Father of us all let me know through His Holy Spirit that He is real and that His gospel in it's fullness exists among His children here.

How I live my faith

I live my faith each day as I strive to emulate Jesus Christ. Sometimes that means picking up my friend's kids from school. Sometimes that means making cookies for my husband, or cleaning my kids rooms for them, chatting with my retired neighbor, kissing the tear-stained face of my little one after crashing on his bike or showing my daughter to crochet a gift for her grandma. Living my faith each day means not honking at the driver who cut me off, but showing my children how to respond in patience. It also includes supporting my husband as he serves the youth and helping a group of girls, ages 8-11, learn life skills and develop their faith in Jesus Christ. Living my faith each day can be challenging, but the joy I feel as I try is worth it.
