I am literally SO happy you stumbled across my work! A little bit about me and how I got here:
If I'm being real, photography was never the plan for my life. My parents bought me my first "real" camera for my high school graduation, and I started taking free senior pictures for a couple of classmates since a girl with a fancy camera and no clue was at least a half step up from an iPhone. I then went off to college to major in Human Resources *insert Toby from The Office joke here *, and started doing senior pictures as a side hustle during the summers, alongside my other job as a doll hair stylist at the American Girl store. Ask me about this later LOL
I ended up entering the wedding world on a total fluke, which I am so grateful for. Two of my friends ended up eloping on super short notice, needed a photographer, and I was available! Fast forward 3 years and here I am serving all sorts of amazing couples, seniors, and families!
I am a major Swiftie who loves sushi, buying more books than I will ever read, my black cat Bella, and finessing the PERFECT Spotify playlist for every occasion.
I more than likely will not go for your entire photo session without telling you some story about my cat, Bella! We rescued this cutie at the end of 2020, and she has brought tons of laughter and entertainment to our home. I always joke that she is more dog than cat because she has a biiiiig personality, she meows at squirrels and birds, and even plays fetch - for real.
Of course I can't forget to introduce you to my husband either! Lots of past brides & grooms know him as my second shooter, and he is truly the most incredible support system for me and this business! We are high school sweethearts who endured a 5-year long distance relationship at separate colleges, and have been married since August of 2019! Every year truly keeps getting better and better.
My life outside of photography, there's not tons of extra time, but when I get it, I am a huge reader. Like huge. I read 91 books in 2022, and my goal for this year is to read at least 75! It sounds impressive, but in reality, I'm re-reading Twilight or Harry Potter at least once per year, and a whole lot of other fun books. I'm always looking for new recommendations, so if you're a reader, share your favs!
Travel has become a huge passion of mine over the last couple of years. Scott & I anticipated doing a lot more traveling when we were first married, but then COVID happened.
In 2022 and into this year, we have been so blessed to be able to make up for lost time and travel to Disney World, London, Paris, and Maui!
