the girl who dances on Instagram
the girl who encourages you to bring your pups to shoots
the girl who's in love with her Marine hubby + baby girl
I'm a girly girl at heart (favorite color is pink & I definitely love fashion) but I'm also an athlete to the core (fun fact: I played four years of D1 college soccer). More often than not, I'm found at home behind a screen editing away, catching a plane to the next out of state wedding, or catching up with a new or old friend over a coffee date (which is super weird cause I don't like coffee, but it's something about those coffee shop vibes that I can't get enough of). I love my husband Avery with my whole heart and the military holds a special place in our lives (aka it's the reason I claimed "traveling photographer" as my own).
I'll be happy soaking in the sunshine with friends, but don't mind dancing in the rain & snow either. I'm a complete planner and clean freak, but Avery always brings the spontaneity and it hasn't hurt me yet. I love to break out in dance at the most
un-oppurtune moments, sing at the top of my lungs, take far too many pictures, find the best steals at thrift stores, & encourage every human I interact with to seek & know a joy this world cannot offer; Jesus.
I'm the girl with the camera.

I hope it's this.
I started photography professionally right as I graduated college and moved West to marry my now husband. I was taking a big leap of faith trusting God would provide and reward me for following a desire in my heart that I swore was from Him.
Years later, I can confirm that He has done more than provide and reward; He perfectly placed that desire to photograph and "be my own boss" in my heart so that I could be available to my family. So that I could have babies, not miss a second of their little lives, and still contribute creatively and financially to my family.
This career and the people that have made it possible (YOU) have been the biggest blessing to not only me, but my husband and kiddos and that's not something I'll ever take lightly or be able to thank you for enough.
Nothing I do makes photos any good unless you know how special your love and story is and you're down to revel in it. And I feel as though you knowing how grateful I am for y'all plays an itty bitty role in that.
I give you prompts, guidance, and direction so that those little things about you and your story escape your heart and light up your face in the most genuine way possible and I get to capture it in still shot images for you to keep and bottle up forever.
I'll probably hug you guys before (and also likely after) the session like we're long time friends finally meeting up again. And just so you know - I have about a 95% rate of ACTUALLY becoming/staying friends with clients after a session, so you're in for a ride. ;)
What I admire most about this market is that no photographer is the same. So look around and make sure to choose a photographer that compliments your personal style and if I'm your girl, then hit me up! Let's be friends! Let's go get coffee (hot cocoa or smoothies for me) and chat about all the things that make up YOU and your family or your hunny. Let's go on an adventure, or stay at home and shoot your pictures where you're most comfortable! I'm here to serve you and I can't wait to do so!
