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.

Palm Coast Family Portraits Beneath the Trees and By the Sea

Thursday, July 13th, 2017

Beautiful things can happen when you’re willing to brave the summer heat and humidity (and dragonfly-sized mosquitoes) for the sake of family portraits. That’s what we found out when we met up for portraits at Washington Oaks one evening last month. The boys kept telling us, “There are flies on me” — and by flies, they meant mosquitoes. So we hurried through the gardens so we could get down onto the beach. But in the photographs, you can’t see the bugs. You just see magic.
Really, “magic” isn’t much of an exaggeration. This afternoon was absolutely enchanted.
Oh, the photograph on the right — they were doing what I labeled The Mosquito Dance!
Crossing the street from the gardens and stepping out onto the beach was such a breath of fresh air — literally! It felt about ten degrees cooler by the water, we’d left the bugs and shoes behind, and everyone was ready to just have fun as the sun settled into the horizon.
An apricot glaze washed over the sky to the west, and it was perfect! Simply the sweetest.
So long!

loved working with this family and these three funny, adventurous boys!
