Connection + Inspiration + Celebration

Me in a nutshell...

My husband and I have been married for 5 years. We have the cutest lil blue-eyed boy and he is such a joy in our lives. Much like my passion to connect through photography, the desire for connection carries through every area of my life. We do youth ministry with our local church, and most weeks you can find us hanging out with a group of our baby friends or teenagers. I’m a celebrator of people, a lover of making new, authentic friendships and having deep conversations — connection!

I find inspiration for my life and work through traveling. I’ve been to Europe many times and I want to live in Italy’s countryside one day. I find solace and inspiration by being outside (give me a good sunset and that's all I need to reset) — inspiration.

And lastly, I’m a girly who loves romanticizing life and finding joy in the seemingly mundane. I love breakfast, long walks, porch hangs, coffee dates, wine nights, and a good charcuterie board — celebration.

Enough about me, tell me about you and your boo! What do you love doing together? Reach out — let’s have a coffee date!

Why photography

When I first picked up a camera four years ago, I had a realization: there’s a part to storytelling that you can’t express with words alone. There’s a whole side to a story that can only be captured through photography.

You can read about the emotion on someone’s face, but until you see that emotion, you’re not fully able to grasp the realness of the moment someone is in.

From there, I was hooked. Documenting people’s stories and making them feel seen and valued is what I’m passionate about.

I’m here to tell your story.
