MY STORY

I can trace my love of photography back to sitting on my grandmother's couch with my mom, spending hours looking through our old family pictures. She had this antique cabinet that held all of our albums, and I remember that special feeling of reliving memories- even the ones I wasn't even a part of. My mom would tell me stories of my great-grandmother who I had never met, stories of her childhood with her sisters, and then I would get to tell the story of the time we went to the beach or Disney or welcomed a new cousin into the world. 

From then on, I was obsessed. When I was still in elementary school, my mom bought me a camera and a personal printer so I could start filling my own albums with the stories I wanted to remember. And now, that love of documentation has led me here to you- helping tell your stories. 

ME

Wife. Mama. Believer. Dreamer.

Nashville is home. I found Jesse in high school (go Wildcats!), met my best friends in college (go Vandy!), and settled down to create a life I love. My weekends where I'm not photographing weddings or families are filled with wandering around the zoo, reading books with James, and watching cooking shows with Jesse after the little guy is asleep.

 

I believe in happiness & joy. I think pasta can make a bad day better & that you're never too old for a Disney movie. I enjoy planning and day dreaming- for date nights with my best friend & hubby, future vacations we never actually take, & what I'm going to cook for dinner. I always choose to hold a sleeping baby over doing dishes, even if it means them piling up. And I know without a shadow of a doubt that everyone deserves beautiful photos to help capture the best moments of our lives.
