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.

Golden Hour Family Portraits

Thursday, November 3rd, 2016

You can pick out the perfect outfits for them, and comb their hair just so. But even for family pictures, you can’t take the silly out of little boys!

This Ormond Beach family portrait session, on a beautiful, not-quite-blustery fall evening, was all about playing tag and exploring the park . . . in between moments of mugging (perfectly!) for the camera. This first shot is my favorite: the sweetly happy parents juxtaposed with the goofy-giddy boys. And that light!
