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.

They wanted beach portraits — and although, as a photographer herself who knows all too well that we can’t control the weather during a shoot, she really hoped they would end up with a soft, pastel sunset and glassy-smooth water skimming along the beach and reflecting like a mirror. What we ended up with were her […]

This is only Part One. That’s right. Claudia’s senior session was so much fun (and involved so many beautiful portraits in two different locations) that I decided to split it into two blog posts. Later this week, her equestrian portraits. But today, her gorgeous sunrise beach portraits:This was one of our first frames of the […]

I’m not entirely sure how this happened — I’ve lost count of the number of engagement sessions I’ve done at the beach, and I’ve shot over a dozen sunrise sessions in the past year, but somehow this was the very first time I’ve ever shot an engagement session, on the beach, as the sun rose. It. […]

We thought it was going to rain. Because, oh boy, it had been raining. All day. All week. Right up until about twenty minute before we were scheduled to shoot. So we drove down to the inlet, and we just hoped for the best so we could capture some family portraits and six-month-old baby photos during […]

Most families contacting me about beach portraits have the same question: where do we shoot? You may be thinking, come on — it’s Daytona Beach, there are quite literally tons of beach there! Why does it matter exactly where you do your portraits? Well, here are a few things I consider: Will there be a lot of […]

We met up at sunrise, in front of the condo where this family has been vacationing ever since their dad was the same age as his kids are now. The twins were yawning when they came down onto the beach, and it seemed like the sun was yawning too as it worked its way up […]
