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.

When a big extended family shows up with siblings and cousins and two sets of grandparents all in the mix, it makes for a really fun morning! This sweet family, on their annual summer beach vacation, came to me because their friends had just done a shoot with me when they were on their own […]

Because I’m a natural light portrait photographer, I prefer to schedule my outdoor portrait sessions during or close to golden hour — when the sunlight gets all warm and glowy as it dips low along the horizon. But not all sessions can take place during golden hour. Here’s what it typically looks like to shoot […]

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 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 […]

It was a beautiful, blustery morning on the beach last month when we headed down onto the beach in Daytona for sunrise family photos. The whole family was together for Easter, and with three out of four sisters grown and one living out of state, that’s not something that happens often enough. And so they were […]
