About Me

I'm a Boy & Corgi (x2) Mom. Wifey. Dancer. Dreamer. Designer. Hope enthusiast. Saved by His grace (every. single. day). And I absolutely love portrait photography … not because of the camera thing, but because I think every face is beautiful. And every day is a celebration.

I discovered photography during Journalism school in college. I spent long hours on portrait photography assignments, finding my happy place photographing people. I loved telling each individual story … getting to know my subjects, and then capturing their personal light and the ambient light surrounding them. Fast forward a few years, to me picking up my camera again to do some senior photos for a family member, who then referred me to a friend … who then referred another friend… and so on. Today, I'm honored and blessed to photograph Newborns, Families, First Communions, Seniors, Engagements, Reunions and Weddings.

If I had to describe my photography style, I'd say it's light-filled, journalistic-story-telling with a focus on the beauty in every face, and that little bit of magic that happens every time people who love one another get together. That? That's what I'm always looking to capture. <3
