About Vanessa

Adventure Awaits

'Adventure Awaits' is our family motto. As a daughter friend, former Special Educator, and especially a military spouse and a mom of a daughter with FBXO11, I have learned to find adventure in every new moment life brings . I have been blessed by some amazing people throughout my life and have had the honor of meeting some of the most incredible people as a military spouse. I used to consider myself an introvert, but moving with the Army has turned me into an introverted extrovert. I transitioned from the field of education to stay at home mom in 2016, and in 2020 I became a photographer. This new profession allows me to be present for my daughter,(who has a rare genetic misspelling), and move to a new "Duty Station", while meeting so many incredible people. This is why I have one of the coolest jobs in the world. Through the lens of photography I am able to connect my love of people to a moment that will last a lifetime.

Duty, Honor, Country

"Those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be." -General MacArthur

Meeting the Cadets and families of West Point allows me to experience the many ways the Long Grey line continues.
