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.

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.

Waiting for # 6

Thursday, April 7th, 2016

With five girls already in the mix, they got the question nonstop: “So, do you think this one will be a boy?” And their answer every time was an honest, “We don’t know.” They’d decided not to find out this time and let baby # 6 be a surprise!

Another surprise: baby # 6 was’t worried about punctuality. In fact, this at-home maternity session was on the baby’s due date! Then, as soon as we wrapped up shooting, Dad + kid # 1 headed out to teach/participate in a gymnastics class . . . on the baby’s due date. With # 6, things are very relaxed! But no less exciting or anticipated than with # 1.maternity portraits Daytona Beach FloridaMaternity and family photography Daytona BeachThe girls were excited to come outside on that windy evening, but the youngest ones were a lot more interested in their tree swing than in pictures. And I just love # 5’s reaction to being encouraged to smile for the camera!
