am Cheryl. For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a camera in my hand. I have always had a passion for documenting my life through the lens of a camera, whether it be a family picnic, a vacation, or just spending time with loved ones.
I started thinking of photography as a career when my friends started having children. I loved capturing the joy and innocence of children, and making a record of all their important milestones as they grew.
But it wasn’t until I was asked to shoot my first wedding that my passion for photography was fully realized. Since then, I have shot hundreds of weddings, and I enjoy being a wedding photographer more with each new season.
I wouldn’t trade my “job” for anything. It is my honor and privilege to photograph a family’s most memorable moments.
My clients let me into their lives, and trust me to document, with honesty and grace, their deepest emotions: their love, their tears, their laughs, and their fears. For this privilege, I am grateful beyond words.

Cheryl was great to work with and made the process easy and fun!
We found LifeLong photography on the internet and chose them due to their amazing reviews. We were not disappointed! Cheryl was great to work with and made the process easy and fun. Our pictures came out beautifully.
