Creating Images To Be Cherished For A Lifetime

Based in Charlottesville, Virginia
and Madison, NC
Serving Virginia and the Piedmont Triad of NC

Authentic | Expressive | Thoughtful

I'm a fun-loving photographer, dog mom, NYIP graduate, wife to my jocular husband, believer, and avid trail rider with my horses!

I fell in love with photography because I have to slow down and really look at people, take some time with them and then I get to appreciate their outer beauty. But it also makes me appreciate their inner beauty! Everyone in front of my camera is incredibly beautiful or handsome!!

Let me leave you with a thought! What is your legacy and what do you want to leave your family with. I'm hoping one of your answers is beautiful images you and your family can cherish for a lifetime. We all have a story so come let me document it for you whether it be silly and funny or serious and dramatic!

Our beautiful pictures taken by the best, @kimberlyjadeforbes! We had so much fun making these memories with you on my papa's farm. Losing him four days ago was such a heartbreak, but seeing these pictures will forever remind me of him ❤️
