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.

Shona – Class of 2015

Monday, May 11th, 2015

It’s been a long time since I blogged any Daytona Beach senior portraits, but today Shona is making the blog beautiful!

I absolutely loved her bright, playful, beachy, Lilly Pulitzer-centric style, her ready laugh and her sparkling eyes.

And the receding tide and cool breeze. And a few pelicans enjoying the evening.
