I've
always been
storyteller.

But I never set out to be a photographer. I was (and still am!) going to be a writer. And then as I worked toward that writing goal, someone put a camera in my hand and asked me to try telling stories with something besides words. So with an English nerd's love for character and tone, a romantic's love for poignant beauty, and a realist's love for imperfection, I dove in.

I've
always been a
story-teller.

That was back in 2010.

Since that time, photography has changed much of my life. It's brought me some of my dearest friends. It's reshaped the way my husband Danny and I view serving others. It has even literally taken me around the world. One thing that hasn't changed: my soul-stirring desire to tell stories that feel so real you're sure you knew them before you heard them. Or saw them. It's my privilege to tell those stories for my clients, and for the generations of their families still to come.

Well, 2016 is almost a wrap. We’re down to the final handful of hours. This year overflowed with portrait sessions — families. Engagements. Newborns. Seniors. Equestrian. An editorial shoot. One vow renewal. One elopement. Two adoptions, one domestic and one halfway around the world. We photographed our family in July. We photographed ourselves as snowflakes fell on […]

Last spring, I shared the story behind Legacy Portraits. But the story of how I became a photographer in the first place? That’s a story I’ve told over and over — but I’m honestly not sure if I’ve ever written it down. So here goes! My photography story starts in college, with a few flashbacks to my […]

It started with a piece of paper from Rifle Paper Co. A beautiful floral print in hues of sweet peach and apricot and cream and sage and fir. (If you look for it, you’ll find it peeking out on the table.) Then came the birch wood, the heirloom sterling silver, the white pumpkins, the handmade burlap utensil […]

Earlier this week, we shelved the holiday busyness for a day and spent an afternoon in St. Augustine with friends. It was a positively chilly day by Florida standards, but beautiful by any! St. Augustine is my old stomping grounds, since I graduated from Flagler College, but there are always bits and pieces of Old Town that are still […]

Whew, is everyone else feeling as busy as I am?! Yesterday, I saw a little trinket box for sale, and it was stamped with the phrase “Next year, I plan to start putting off my Christmas shopping extra early.” You guys. This is my life. Every single year! I always promise myself I’ll be ahead […]

For years, I had watched people sharing photographs of Friendsgiving get togethers, and for years I had wanted to do the same. This year it finally happened, because as it turned out, we have friends who had always wanted to pull together a Friendsgiving, too! It was a quiet and cozy get together, a Florida-themed […]
