I was born and raised in a small town in Florida, but all it took was one trip to the mountains when I was just ten years old for me to know that’s where I would end up one day. Having the chance to live in the Pacific Northwest alongside my husband as he serves in the Army, I feel like I am living my best life exploring all the PNW has to offer! I'm an outdoors enthusiast, foodie, cat mama and find myself obsessed with in-between moments and telling stories through photographs.
Why do I do what I do? I grew up with a mom who had a passion for taking pictures and creating albums. If there was an important moment in my childhood, my mom has a photo of it. Over the years, I enjoyed looking through her albums and loved being able to show my husband moments of my past. It took me a while to realize, but those moments I have photographs of, are the memories that are most vivid and I relive over and over again today.
My photography style? It’s real, raw, authentic and adventurous. I’ll do just about anything to make you laugh and like to keep it simple and fun. When it comes to documenting weddings, there’s nothing more special than seeing two families join as one, to hear how a couple met and why they’re celebrating their union. I tear up at almost every wedding and those are the moments that I want to capture so that years from now, the memories come flooding back and the story can be relived over and over again.
The reason behind the why.
There’s nothing that makes me feel more alive than a mountain-side breeze & capturing love and life as it happens.
