- I have hiked 13 14ers!
- I’m a hugger. Big time.
- I love my puppies (featured above) more than anything in the whole world. Their names are Paisley (left) and Cash (right). If you get to know me, you’ll know them shortly too!
- I am an Enneagram type 2w1 to the core!
- I rode motocross for a while as a child -- I don't own my own bike anymore, but still love exploring via dirt bikes. aka lets elope with dirt bikes? cool cool cool.
- Ben Rector is my life soundtrack.
I first picked up a camera when I was freshman in high school (that’s like 10 whole years ago!) and haven’t lost a love for it since.
Perhaps it’s the enneagram type 2 in me, but I find a lot of who I am in the relationships around me. I get the joy and honor of being a daughter, a friend, a sister, a wife (to the coolest dude ever), a dog mom, a coworker, a teammate, and a follower of Jesus. I value intimacy and connection, intentionality and quality time, and relationship more than anything. With that in mind, please know that if/when I work with you, I will want to get to know you. And if you let me, I will hold that gift carefully, because I know the importance it carries. Thanks in advance for letting me into your story :)
I began on a film camera, developing all of my own photos in my high school’s dark room, and gained a deep love for the genuine art of photography. From there, I fell in love with capturing people and love and creating something that allows that emotion to be preserved forever.
My style is honest and raw — I much prefer candid photos over anything posed (who needs prom round 2, am I right?). My job is not to tell you who to be or how to love, but to honor and display the love that already exists and defines who you are. I tend to lean toward more moody, neutral & earthy tones in my photos and a bit less vibrant - in - your - face colors. I love detail and emotion and will likely focus on those two items. Regardless, I am here to tell your story, not mine, so please communicate with me so that I can capture you/your day/your family in the most genuine way possible.
Lastly, I love to laugh and have fun and want the same for you. If you want to hike a mountain and take pictures on the top, I’m in!! If you want to dress up and explore downtown, you can consider me your plus one. We can bring a speaker for your favorite music or pop a bottle of champagne to release the nerves — what works for you works for me.
All in all, I’m honored that you want to know me and hope for the opportunity to know you as well!
