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.

This is Part Two of Claudia’s amazing senior portrait session. Click here to see Part One, her sunrise beach portraits. It took a while for the two of us to tear ourselves away from the vivid sunrise at the beach, but eventually we headed across town, ventured down a long and very muddy dirt road, and […]

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 […]

Saryn grew up visiting the area and enjoying the local beaches, so when it came time to think about senior portraits, she knew she wanted them to happen on the Florida beaches she loves. They couldn’t have happened more beautifully: on a gorgeous, hazy-sunny afternoon in early August, with a salty breeze that kept the […]

When I was a little girl, I wanted a horse more than anything in the world because I knew there wouldn’t be anything quite like having a horse of my own. When I was a teenager, I got one, and I found out I’d been right. And Erika’s life followed the very same path. I […]

This girl absolutely rocked my first portrait session of the year! Reyna came down from the frozen Midwest to thaw out at the beach with relatives for a New Year’s vacation, and on her last day in town, we got together for a cloudy-skied sunrise and a healthy dose of palm trees before she headed […]

The truth is that I made horrible conversation during this shoot: I just kept sputtering, “You look like a mermaid!” and “Perfect!” every time I pressed my shutter. Izzy was just that great. And the sunrise that morning — not too shabby either. I have absolutely fallen in love with sunrise sessions, and Izzy’s was […]
