My story

My story started out when I was in college. I didn't really know exactly my journey was going to begin, but I knew deep down that I wanted to be creating art that was passionate. And well the rest is history!

Over the years, I truly learned to understand the importance of my career because well, this life is precious in so many ways. I am here for the beauty, the love, the heartfelt and sometimes the heartache. I am here to help guide you through an experience of getting your photographs taken for what is most meaningful to you! Getting to know my clients on a personal level to help you feel at ease in your photographs so we can evoke an emotional story to be told for a lifetime. I literally live to capture the connections we create together, and I am inspired by you! Yes, you!

From the beginning, all the way to the finished product. I am here for you to style the apparel for your shoot. I even have a small client closet for you and the littles, depending on size. Together during our session, we will tap into the sweet little moments, with music and even some dance. All this so, I can deliver a beautifully curated gallery for you to cherish with your loved ones. To print your work of art in your homes, and to look back on that brings you all the feels.
