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.

Dreamy Pastel Ponce Inlet Beach Family Photos

Monday, October 23rd, 2017

They wanted beach portraits — and although, as a photographer herself who knows all too well that we can’t control the weather during a shoot, she really hoped they would end up with a soft, pastel sunset and glassy-smooth water skimming along the beach and reflecting like a mirror.

What we ended up with were her happy family laughing and splashing and digging in the sand, and smiling shyly for the camera, and squeezing each other into the most “I-mean-it (because Mom said I have to hug you)” kinds of sweet little hugs. And the picture-perfect pastel sky and glassy-mirror sea? Just a nice little bonus. I’ll let you in on a secret? Their little man made eyes at me and insisted on holding my hand as we walked down the boardwalk to the beach. His mama said he’s a bit of a toddler-flirt, but I choose to believe he just thought I was something special. Just like they all were!
Pastel sky full off cotton candy clouds? Check. Glassy water that created beautiful reflections? Check. Super sweet kiddos who just kept giggling? Check.
And on that sweet note — we wrapped up and headed home. It was such a happy evening, and such a pretty evening! I’m so glad I got to be a part of it!
