Each morning I wake up to a blaring alarm at 5 am, I carefully roll over and quietly turn it off so it does not disturb my slumbering husband. I then gently rub his back and whisper to wake him for work. He’s exhausted from the previous day still, I know, so I reset the early alarm for “10 more minutes” and I cuddle up to him and close my eyes for just a little longer as he curls around me, breathing a happy groan of appreciation. These precious little moments of love are what fuel my purpose to document the special moments and bonds shared between others.
Residing in the small town of Okeechobee, Fl where I was born and raised, I am a mother of 1, wife to my high school sweetheart, and a bachelors in organizational management graduate. I love to cuddle up on the couch under a blanket with a chai latte and a good book to read.
I absolutely adore what I do and I hope it shows. I’m passionate about laughter, joy, and love. Warm evening sunlight gets me positively excited! I am the biggest book nerd (fantasy, adventure, manga, etc.), and I drink a little too much cappuccino & tea.
Everyday I am constantly reading and learning new things and I hope to pass along that knowledge to my followers and readers. I always seem to be on the go and have experienced so many things in my young life that I am almost always able to approach a situation with a level head and an experienced mind.

I have a weak spot for natural light, and while I can absolutely shoot in artificial light, there is something about the dreaminess you can achieve with the warm haziness the sun casts down on us through the clouds and trees. I am a storyteller, and photographs are one of the very few tangible things we will have left to look back on these precious moments, meaning that my perspective will affect how you remember your most special time! I strive to capture every last little detail, big and small, in the most beautiful and artful way possible. I shoot very candid, raw, and REAL images with a classic timeless feel, which is why I shoot a hybrid of digital and film.
I love telling stories and thus I step away from the conventional posed shots, to capture the real you in love with your special someone, in love with your child, and you feeling loved in your own beautiful skin! I will offer some gentle direction, but the majority of our time spent together is capturing you as you are, for you are a work of art! I want you to laugh and cry when you look back on these moments. I adore outdoor weddings and absolutely love brides who take the road less traveled and incorporate their personalities into their most important day. Nothing makes me more excited than when I enter a outdoor reception space that is lit by bistro or string lights (my favorite)!
