hi.

Thank you for stopping by to learn more about me and my art!

The first thing you should know about me is that I. Love. People. That is the foundation of why I love photography. I love that we are different and were created to be beautiful in our own ways, and I am thankful for a Creator who gives us all different dreams and abilities.

This is my dream.

My dad gave me my first film camera about 15 years ago. (And by gave, I mean borrow, but I still have it...go figure.) I photographed everything I could. I love documenting the world and people around me, not only because I find it all so fascinating, but because I think it's important to remember the places you've been and the people you've met. And that's probably the second thing you should know about me - I am deeply sentimental. I want to remember as much as I can, and I want to help you do the same. 

A few more fun facts about me:

  • My favorite thing to do, other than photograph people, is sit on the porch with a good book and a good cup of coffee.
  • I’m an INFJ, emphasis on F. I cry at Folgers commercials.
  • I grew up in the country near the water.
  • My favorite color is yellow.
  • I am a hard core Hanson fan.
  • I have a deep appreciation for sunsets and farms and puppies. 
  • I love people and Jesus so much it hurts. Literally. I cry sometimes (see second bullet point).
  • My ultimate dream is to one day open a coffee house/photo studio in a small town near the mountains.
  • I live in the cutest little town of Silverhill, Alabama (think Stars Hollow) with my furbabies, Magnolia Rose and Tobin


I still shoot film, and have several old film cameras that have helped me become the photographer I am today. Shooting film makes me take every shot on purpose, plus I love the way film looks - those colors! that grain! - and I love the way the camera feels when that shutter snaps. I am considered a "hybrid" shooter though, because I do shoot some digital as well, mostly as backup, or in certain lighting conditions when it is more convenient. I work in natural light, and prefer a documentary style of photography. I want to capture real moments, moments you will cherish forever.

Thanks again for stopping by! And, seriously, I would love the opportunity to photograph you, your family or your special event, so please don’t hesitate to call or email me with any questions!
