I'm your curly haired + coffee obsessed portrait & Wedding photographer

Hey, y'all! I'm a portrait & wedding photographer for the authentic adventurous soul. If that's you, than you've come to the right place.  For the past four years, I have been documenting & creating beautiful & authentic love stories & portraits that are photographic heirlooms that can be remembered & cherished; forever.

My passion & dedication to photography came when I got my first camera in 2010. I was always the family member that took ALL the photos to be remembered for future generations. Fast forward to 2014 and a dead end job later, a spark reunited my creative soul & dream of bringing authentic experiences for families, children, couples, brides & grooms with beautiful photographs & thus officially becoming a professional photographer since 2016.

From Fredericksburg, Virginia where my coffee obsession, love of personal connection + downtown came from, I moved to Norfolk, Virginia for six years where I then met my now amazing husband. Military life moved us to El Paso, Texas for almost two years - where my love of the beach was replaced by desert sunsets + authentic Mexican food. I am now based in Fredericksburg, Virginia until the end of 2019 until our next big adventure!

I am a military wife, a mama to an amazing little girl, and two rambunctious cats. When not photographing, my camera is replaced with a coffee in hand or the occasional IPA (or wine) at night. You can usually find me listening to music + dancing like nobody's watching. I love a great adventure + will be your best passenger DJ on the next roadtrip.
