the fun facts

One of my first “photoshoots” (around 2011) was of my dad and brothers building our backyard fire pit! While they invested in hours of hard work, I picked up my camera and captured every part of it with my little purple point and shoot. That was just the beginning as my passion has grown into a true artistic talent that I am able to use to serve others in order to create and capture meaningful moments that will be cherished for generations.

Our story

Mikayla + Jordan

Our wild 2-year-old son who likes to run, play, yell, and hit things. He loves the playground, bubbles, reading books, going for walks, and tormenting his sister.

Lucas

Our strong-headed 3-year-old daughter who loves to dance, sing, color, and jump on the trampoline! She loves to be outside despite her fierce hate for bugs and flying things.

Dottie

My husband and second photographer on wedding days. He also works a full time job and a part time job. He is our leader, the one who keeps us spontaneous, and the best cook!
