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.

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.

Our New Portraits!

Monday, May 18th, 2015

For the second year in a row when we did a photo swap with Eileen and Phillip of Blume Photography while we were at the CONNECT Retreat, we walked away absolutely in love with the portraits they captured of us.

And as photographers, it is so valuable to get in front of the camera sometimes instead of only being behind it. Not only is it important for us to have photographs of ourselves (!!!), but it’s always a learning experience when other photographers are directing a session and posing us as their subjects. It’s a great opportunity to see how a session feels for a client, and pick up some new tips for how to make things run smoothly — or how to keep people laughing so hard they can hardly breathe!Daytona photographerForget that dreamy first picture (which I love). It’s beautiful and romantic and all — but these next two are us. Absolutely, undeniably us. We don’t ugly-cry, we weird-laugh, and we do a lot of it.Daytona lifestyle photographerOrmond Beach photographersOrmond Beach Florida photographersDaytona Beach photographerloooove the one below on the right!Ormond Beach photographerOrmond Beach Florida photographerThank you, Eileen and Phillip, so much and once again, for the beautiful photographs from our wonderful trip!
