Photographer, Mother, & Adventurer

Your heart will be so full!

I am dedicated to helping create the best experience for my couples, and giving them joyous memories they can forever hold on to, and pass down as a part of their legacy. You deserve a photographer that will go above and beyond for you, to help you capture those in-between moments that happen so quickly, those little moments we don’t even think about, but bring us so much joy looking back on. That is what I will give to you. 

my philosophy

The hands that you hold today were carefully crafted for you, and made in the eyes of God. Those same hands held your sweet face for your first kiss, and that nervously held your hands as he placed that sparkly diamond ring on your finger the day you became engaged. Those hands will help build your first home together, and they'll hold you tight on the day you both say 'I DO'. Those gentle hands will hold your first-born baby with loving tenderness, be there through the good times, and the bad. Those same hands will grow old with you, and gently comfort you as you watch your children move away to start their own lives.

Are you ready to capture your adventurous love?

The Quiz

The Office, and most days I will find ways to sneak in Office jokes throughout the day!

my favorite person:

My daughter, Addy Bear! She is my only child and she’s THE BEST! Seriously! One day, I hope she’ll take to photography just like her momma so we can work together! Wouldn’t that be fun?

you'll probably find me:

At the beach with a Starbucks Violet Drink in hand! I love the coast, and never want to leave.

My heart and soul lie with the state of Missouri. I was born and raised in a little town in the outskirts of Kansas City.

Patrick. He is everything I never knew I needed. He is the rock in our foundation, and loves us so well.

I love our home here in Virginia, and the beach is my favorite. I moved here after joining the U.S. Navy after high school!
