The road to becoming a professional photographer was a simple one--she began documenting the honesty in her children's everyday lives. When others began asking her to capture that spirit in their children, she began...

With an obvious talent and a plan to keep it simple, she only uses available light, both indoors and out, for all of her portrait sessions. She wants to capture who you "are", not just what you "look" like. She strives to create memories with spirit, honesty and beauty. While Audrey prefers her portraits to have a documentary feel to them, she aims to connect with her subjects. She believes that the eyes are the windows to the soul.
