About Me

My sophomore year of high school I fell in love with a quote by Anais Nin, which says, “Dreams are necessary to life.” How true that short declaration is!  They get your blood pumping and the gears in your head cranking.

Being a photographer is a dream God planted in my heart years ago, when I was only 8 years old. Over time that dream has been buried, forgotten, and sometimes completely lost amidst the daily grind of life. But I have found that God is ever so faithful and His timing is fully perfect, and it’s with great joy and excitement that I’ve finally been able to see this old dream of mine come to life!

For me, I love photography because it allows me to capture the unique beauty of each person who I focus my lens on.  And let me tell you, every person is so, so beautiful in his or her own way! I am a natural light photography and if I had to pick three words to describe my style they would be passionate, creative, and genuine.  Passionate because I strive to catch the raw emotion between people, whether it’s the adoration of a mom and her newborn, the giddiness of a couple about to be married, or the silly banter between siblings in a family; those unique human connections that make us special and oh so beautiful!  Creative because whenever I’m looking through a camera, my hand inevitably finds the most off-beat perspective that gives my photos an artistic and fun look.  Finally, my style is genuine.  I like to take pictures where people look most like themselves – the most amazing version of themselves – with no dramatic editing, but rather a real and authentic image.

Along with being a photographer I am Christian who struggles to die to myself every single day. I have an adventurous, mountain-man husband, Steve, who is my partner-in-crime in this crazy journey of life. I’m a mom to two beautiful daughters, 5 year old Bailey, and 2 year old Georgia. One is super sweet and one is super spunky and both give me many belly laughs and many gray hairs.  Along with taking pictures, I also love sweating it out on a run, getting lost in a good book, and writing to get my thoughts out.

Thanks for stopping by to see my work!  If it’s something that suits your style, please contact me so we can set up a time to take some beautiful pictures!

Finally, I want my pictures to be warm – to have a glowing, sun-drenched quality that creates a cozy sense of love.

I believe that dreams are precious seeds sown deep within our hearts, and when given water, sunshine, and love, they can grow and flourish into the beautiful fruits of our lives.
