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.

Jennie + Chris – Couple Portraits

Wednesday, May 6th, 2015

We met Jennie and Chris at CONNECT this year, and since they were one of the few couples there who weren’t photographers (gasp!), we wanted to make sure they went home with some portraits of themselves. Before the beautiful al fresco dinner on Wednesday night, we squeezed in a quick mini session with them on the hilltop, surrounded by the beautiful whitewashed buildings and terra cotta tiled roofs . . . which coordinated with Jennie’s outfit pretty perfectly. It wouldn’t have been better if we had planned it!

This first picture just makes me absolutely sigh with happiness. Doesn’t Jennie look so peaceful and so beautiful and so content?
