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.

Jacy – Ormond Beach Senior Portraits

Tuesday, February 18th, 2014

Jacy was so much fun to work with for her senior portraits last month!

If you’ve been following my blog for a while now, you might recognize the beautiful location where we did Jacy’s pictures — because Jacy’s family hosted Danyelle and Kevin‘s fabulous wedding reception on their property one year ago. And if you’ve known me for many more years, you would know that I did a lot of babysitting as a teenager . . . and one night, ten years ago or so, I filled in for one of my best friends, who was the regular babysitter for Jacy and her sisters. So it was just a bit surreal shooting senior portraits with her now that she’s the same age I was back then!

Jacy is a girl who’s every bit as sweet as she looks — and yes, she looked absolutely fabulous for her portraits.
