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.

Lunden – Class of 2016

Monday, April 18th, 2016

When I was in college and she was little, I knew Lunden because she took riding lessons at my stable. Years later, now she’s the teenager with a horse, getting ready to head off to college next fall, and so to celebrate her senior year, we hung out with her warmblood gelding Caluso and created some seriously gorgeous portraits on the perfect spring afternoon.

This right here is what it feels like to be a girl with a horse. It’s the best way to be a teenager.Daytona Beach senior portraitsAnd Lunden, you looked seriously stunning!senior portrait photographer Daytona BeachDaytona Beach equine portraits senior photographyOrmond Beach senior picturesDaytona Beach senior portrait photographerWe wanted Caluso to hang out and graze nearby so he could be a part of the backdrop while I shot some portraits of Lunden alone in the glowy light. But Caluso decided that was the perfect time to play a bucking bronco, and he ran wild through the field with Lunden’s mom tirelessly trying to catch up and catch him. And then he just happened to run behind Lunden for the perfect shot! You can’t plan a picture like that. Or if you did, inevitably the horse would decide he doesn’t feel like running. So Caluso, thanks for one of the coolest pictures ever!

On that windy evening at high tide, we had the beach almost all to ourselves, and Lunden definitely made the most of it.
