my philosophy is pretty simple...

My favorite photography tells a story about its subject. It captures emotion and genuine moments.

When I search for my own photographer, I want someone who I can trust, be comfortable with, and who will take beautiful images.

Whether you're planning a wedding or a portrait session, comfort is key. Nobody feels confident in front of the camera right away... it's my job to help you get there! Let me worry about what looks good while you enjoy the experience.

I believe your images are most beautiful when you can feel them in your hands, see them on your wall, and flip through them in a beautiful album. Technology changes every day, but paper and ink are here to stay.


I'm lucky...

I've been married to the funniest, most handsome ginger for five years now. I have the cutest, 3lb perma-puppy who will never grow up. My spitfire baby girl greets me with a goofy gummy smile every single day. 

My job is to document the happiest day of people's lives while eating cake. I get to spend my days writing, reading, editing, creating... galavanting through the most beautiful places in Virginia.

It's a pretty good life.

I graduated from James Madison University with a BA in English, a Masters in Teaching, and a minor in creative writing.

I am obsessed with storytelling: books, movies, TV shows, blogs. I love them all. Ask me about my favorite stories and we can talk all day.

Snow days are my favorite days. No doubt about it. Except maybe Christmas Eve... the greatest day of them all.

I ramble when I write, but never when I talk. It makes me a great listener!

I'm an introverted homebody. I'm perfectly fine alone in my house for days. Cabin fever, what's that?
