It's True, Your Life Is Worth Documenting..

“There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment.”



Love + Life + All The Things

For every laugh, every joyful tear shed, every tender milestone, for every bit of raw life, I'm here for it all. So give me all of the newly engaged couples, all of the vibrant mamas with new life growing in their wombs, the beautiful chaos of wonderfully fun families, the breathtaking brides and lip trembling grooms, the world-changers, all the things..

We'll chase light or a setting sun. We'll live in the moment and document whatever happens as it unfolds. It's yours for the keeping..

“Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives.”


the sum of what we enjoy the most: cherished happenings

I'm Honored To Tell Your Story..

Hey Beautiful! I'm a 36 year old Elevation Worship and 40' jazz music lovin', fruit craving, and former active duty U.S. Marine turned lifestyle photographer who remains inspired by the world around us. Jesus Christ is the most important Person in my life and His glory is the chief aim in all that I do. I began this artistic journey around 3am in a bathroom in 2014 and I love it! You'll find that I pour all of my energy into curating images that best display the sacred spaces and times of your life. These are your moments, turned memories, that speak to your legacy.. 


When I'm not peering behind a viewfinder or editing, I'm most likely enjoying my insanely gorgeous husband of 17 years, hanging out with our 3 beautiful children, blogging, helping people get into the best shape of their lives, by the ocean, volunteering, or under a blanket in pajamas crying my eyes out watching romantic comedies. By the way, you haven't lived if you haven't eaten Baltimore blue crabs. Just sayin'..

Toward that end, if you're down to earth, up for whatever it takes to get "the shot," and good food and laughing is your jam, we just might be a great fit! I'd love to meet you!
