GET TO KNOW ME

I come from a family of casual photographers. We've always loved our cameras, but more importantly, we've always loved photographs. As a child I treasured our overfilled photo albums and shoe boxes of snapshots and Polaroids, and have since grown especially fond of many portraits capturing family members from generations past in the various stages of their own lives. 

It's no surprise cameras have accompanied me on my adventures as long as I can remember, but I found my passion for portrait photography in 2013. I believe in a loving Heavenly Father, that we are all His children, and that this divine heritage makes everyone a divine creation. As your photographer, my goal is that the love I put into photography and your portraits will show you a glimpse of the immense beauty that He (and I) see in you. I look forward to helping you capture memories and moments in timeless artwork that you and your family can proudly display and treasure for generations to come.

I graduated from Auburn University with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, during which time I met my amazing husband Nick. We have one beautiful little rainbow baby girl. Our family strives to live a Christ-centered life, a choice that has blessed and continues to bless us with happiness and peace through all the highs and lows.

MISSION STATEMENT

I believe in a loving Heavenly Father, that we are all His children, and that this divine heritage makes everyone a divine creation. Every person has a purpose. Every person is beautiful. Every person has a one of a kind story to tell. And I am blessed to illustrate those stories. I believe there is joy in every journey when we follow simple principles.

Be CARING. See the best in people, and yourself. Be a light to those around you. Give and forgive.

Be CREATIVE. Be original. Take the less traveled roads. Use your imagination. Dream big, then do it. 

Be CONFIDENT. Follow your heart. Doubt your doubts. Be fearless. Get out of your comfort zone. Your potential for greatness is beyond belief. 

Be COLORFUL. Be vibrant. Have fun. Make messes. Stand out from the crowd, even if it means you have to stand alone.

Be YOU. You are unforgettable. There is only one you, and you cannot be replaced. You are worthy. Celebrate yourself, because you are amazing, and you will do amazing things!
