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!! 

About Me

I Believe

I believe in laughter because it is one of the happiest sounds I've ever heard and it can bring a smile to anyone's face!

Next

PREV

I believe trials and tribulations grow our character and without them we wouldn't have any!

Next

PREV

I believe snuggles with my dogs and cats should happen everyday because animals matter and deserve to be loved and treated kindly and humanely!  

I believe in finding that thing you are passionate about and dedicating time to it routinely because life is too short to not do things that bring us joy and peace! 

I believe in saying what you mean and meaning what you say because it keeps us honest with others and honest with our feelings! 

I believe in drinking sweet tea because I'm a good southern girl and it makes me happy!
  

I believe in kissing your spouse hello and goodbye always because nothing in life is guaranteed or promised!
  

Next

PREV

I believe in paying attention to the details because that is how we continuously improve! 
  

I believe in never giving up or giving in because I believe perseverance and commitment will make a marriage last!

I believe fear means go because fear is what holds us back from pursuing our dreams and being who we were meant to be! 

I believe in building fences not walls because boundaries with ourselves and others keeps us emotionally healthy, walls isolate us and keep us from deep & meaningful relationships!

I believe in creating images that will be cherished for a lifetime so that as we grow older we can look back at those images and they will tell the story of our lives!

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 ❤️
