I don’t want to be a photographer you hire. Photographers just take pretty pictures. I want to be your friend. Friends relate, laugh together, and share stories. I want to hear your stories and translate them through my camera.
The love I have in my life fills the work I produce. I’m married to a talented and supportive man, we are blessed with an incredible son and each time I return from a shoot, my dog greets me as if I’ve been gone for months. I do what I do because of the warmth I feel capturing the love between others and letting them see the beauty they possess through the art of photography. I adore love. It needs to be shared more often. It makes the world better and I want my images to make your world better.
I hope you enjoy the photographs floating around this site. I’m humbled that you read this far to find out a little bit about me. Now that you’re here, feel free to send me a note. Introduce yourself and tell me what’s going on in your world that you’d like me to capture. I’ll be around, making pictures and friends… and looking forward to being yours.
I specialize in intimate weddings and approach each wedding as if it were my own. I want to capture all the people you’ve chosen to share this day with and all the little things you’ve spent months preparing. Every part of that day is equally important. I want to catch the deep breath you take as your slip into your wedding gown or tighten your necktie, the passion in your embrace as you first lay eyes on each other, the tears that fill eyes as they watch you recite your vows, your grandma who cuts loose on the dance floor to and everyone and everything in between!
One of the most gratifying parts of photographing weddings is the connection I make with everyone involved. I still keep in touch with couples from my very first wedding season in 2006. With over 130 weddings since then, it warms my heart to constantly build my photography family each year and watch families grow. The greatest compliment is when clients come back year after year because they truly enjoy our time together.
Family & Newborn Sessions
My goal is to shatter the eye rolls of any family member who thinks a portrait session will be boring and stagnant. Our time is spent hanging out and getting to know each other, so that you're completely comfortable and your natural personalities shine through in your images. I've been told again and again that my personality makes people instantly at ease. My work cannot be done unless you are 100% comfortable and just as welcoming as I am to capture some incredible photographs. Young children's energy will be matched and hesitant teens and adults will realize quickly there is no reason to be on guard. You'll get a handful of images with everyone looking at the camera, along with a wide array of candids and moments you probably won't realize are happening. I want to capture your family how they really are so that when you're looking back throughout the coming years, your personalities are just as present as they were the day of the session.
I'm extremely passionate about treatment and cures for pediatric illnesses and a portion of every family session goes to St. Jude because I believe in their mission so strongly. Click the above logo to donate directly to St. Jude's life-changing program!
"The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay."
