always been

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.

always been a

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.

Brittanie – Daytona Beach Senior Portraits

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

Brittanie’s senior portraits took place on an absolutely heavenly winter afternoon.

We were at her favorite place — the stable where her two horses live — with gorgeous golden sunlight, curious ponies photo bombing our shots, and some unseasonably mild weather. Plus, Brittanie looked incredible and was as relaxed as if she had logged hours and hours in front of the camera as a professional mode (she hasn’t, but she could!). It was a photographer’s dream shoot, and an absolutely amazing way to spend a day.
