I am going to make everything around me beautiful. That will be my life. ― Elsie De Wolfe
I am a Carolina girl. I’ve been married to the kindest man for almost eight years now (Brandon), he also comes along to most of my shoots to assist me. We are parents to one sweet boy and another on the way (Laef & Atlas). I am a stay-at-home mom and a lifestyle/editorial wedding and portrait photographer.
I love my music loud. I love watermelon and the fruit that summer brings. I love green vintage glass for my kitchen. I am passionate about Europe and traveling. I love coffee dates with my girlfriends, simple Saturday mornings cuddled up in bed with my boys, Facetime and talking on the phone with my best friend, dance parties in my living room, cruise boats, travel sized items, barn wood, Leslie Feist, wide spaces, warm weather, dark colors, dried flowers, camera equipment, cooking Pioneer Woman recipes, the 6:30 pm summer sun, and big cities.
If you’d like to see more of me and my family, check out my family blog at www.ourpaperboats.com.
As for my photography? My photography, to me, is about capturing timeless essence. I’m not into cookie-cutter poses or façades. If I photograph you, I will ask you to be who you are. I want to find what makes you beautiful.
Thanks for reading and looking through my art!
Most of my work takes place in the Carolinas, but I really love to travel and am available for travel both within the US and abroad. For rates and information, please contact me.
