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.

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 […]

The softest of sunrises watercolored the sky for this sweet family during their Daytona Beach Shores portrait session last month. They told me they try to do family portraits twice a year, because they don’t want to forget any season of life with their littles. And they said they’ve been vacationing here for years, dating […]

Today is National Best Friends Day. And so it seems fitting to share these newborn portraits today, showcasing my more-than-half-a-lifetime best friend and her new baby girl and family. At her own childhood home. It couldn’t have been more fitting. There was so much sweetness. There was so much laughter. I will admit that much of that […]

Okay, so that title may be slightly misleading. I promise I’ll never try to convince any of my portrait clients that they’ll have a great session in the middle of a hurricane. That said — today’s a little dreary. It’s summertime in the Sunshine State, which ironically means we’ll have rain and clouds come through […]

Recently, my inbox has almost exploded with inquiries from families, couples, and high school seniors coming to Daytona Beach, or Ormond Beach, or New Smyrna Beach for vacations. These are people who don’t live near the ocean and want some gorgeous portraits to remember their time at the beach. And I love that! The happiness and […]

For the fourth time in six years, I had the pleasure of getting to see this family play in front of my camera during their New Smyrna Beach vacation. It’s been so much fun, watching these kids grow and change — and keep playing in front of my camera. And this was my favorite of […]
