I’m a fast talking southerner with a camera in one hand and a good book in the other.

For me, photography isn’t just about taking pretty pictures. It's about the friendships and relationships that form in the moments between pictures. It's about having my client’s best interest at heart as I capture a moment in time that can’t be relived, but can be enjoyed forever.

A little over 5 years ago Abbie reached out to me as a high school junior to see if she could intern with me.  I had never had an intern before so I had no idea what that looked like.  In the 5 years since Abbie was an intern I have had the opportunity to […]

In 2006 I photographed my first senior… my little sister. Thirteen years later I still love senior sessions just as much as I did back then!! Brooke is full of life and smiles and laughter and it was so much fun to have her in front of my camera a few weeks ago!! We had […]
