Since I was a child, I was always flipping through family photo albums and reliving each memory over and over again, capturing every moment with any camera I could get my hands on and sharing my passion with others.



I am a God fearing woman, Mother to two adorable yet rascal little girls, and a passionate entrepreneur. I am currently pursuing my degree as a Registered Nurse in Virginia.  I proudly served in the United States Navy and support my brothers and sisters who have served and continue to serve.  I am in LOVE with the ocean! I will do just about anything that has anything to do with water.  We don't currently have a pet, but that doesn't stop me from giving all the puppies love at the pet store, shelter, walking down the street, or a friend's house.  My passion for photography was ignited by my first camera I received on my fifteenth birthday and I have been constantly learning ever since.  

Anela is the sweetest photographer! She doesn’t feel like a “photographer” is taking your photos. She’s more like a friend. That helped me to relax and capture genuine smiles!!!
