behind the lens
We have a lot in common, you know. We're dreamers, moment seekers, detailists & passionate about the people around us.
8 years ago I wasn't a photographer. I was a new mom to my little baby girl born prematurely at only 5 lbs and drastically changing every day. Motherhood is an incredibly strong bond and I suddenly felt the need to capture this amazing tiny human God had just blessed me with. I searched for a photographer whose values and work aligned with my vision of capturing her precious details. Many of the referrals I was given felt like strangers with beautiful work, and yet no real connection. From this experience, I've determined to introduce myself to new clients contacting me for the first time because our human nature values real genuine connections.
As it turns out, I had a good friend come with her camera and snapped my daughter's newborn pictures in my home. She came once when she was a newborn and again at 3 months. I thoroughly enjoyed the process and helped stage the shots. I soon purchased a canon camera and my love for photography grew from this personal experience.
I've spent the last 8 years mastering my craft to create high quality and beautiful imagery for real people just like you. For the people who have once-in-a-lifetime moments they desire to be captured in the most honest way possible. For the people who value relationships and interaction. And for the people who value real & emotional memories.
I've been where you've been, and I'm here to say I'll walk with you through every step of the way. Let's start with a phone call so we can introduce ourselves.
