Telling your story, one chapter at a time.


My philosophy

I believe that everyone deserves beautiful memories.  The photos that adorn the walls of your home, reminding you of your most precious moments, the best days of your life.  I've spent hours poring over old photos of my parents and my family—these are treasures to me and will be treasures to my children.  Life happens once and it passes in the blink of an eye, enjoy the moment but don't forget to document it well and document it often.  You'll be so glad you did.

my approach

I strive to create a seamless interaction, whether that be a wedding day or an individual session.  My goal is that you feel prepared, confident and at ease.  There are moments where I will fade into the background, capturing our time together as it unfolds, while you share laughs and get close.  There will be other times that I gently guide, helping to create beautiful, intimate and emotive portraits.  All this, while offering artistic direction and partnering with you to bring your own unique vision for the day to life just as you have imagined it.  Each portrait session or wedding day is a truly customized experience that caters to who you are as an individual or a couple.  The process is relaxed and genuine and you may even enjoy it a little bit, too.  (Wink, wink.)

my work

Clients and peers have called my work classic, romantic and modern.  They have also called it honest and dreamy, sharing that their images really felt like who they are while still feeling incredibly magical.  I have recently been featured online and in print in the likes of Lemonade & Lenses Magazine, Belle Lumiere, The Fount CollectiveHow He Asked by The Knot, & Kentucky Bride, to name a few.  Current clients and collaborations include Roots Floral Design, Luxe Redux Bridal Boutique, Copper, Queen City Vignette, Pinecroft Mansion and Iris & Honey.
