Thanks so much for stopping by the blog and coming here to “meet” me!
I was born and raised here in Jacksonville, like my parents, grands, and great-grands before me. And after a few years of wandering, I have finally returned home. I love it here.
While away, I… visited and viewed some stunning sights, learned a bit & earned a degree, snatched the most handsome man I could find & promised to walk beside him the rest of our days, gathered a few memories & stuffed them into my heart, worshipped fervently & truly received mercy, ate a few-too-many-but-oh-so-worth-it calories, developed lifelong friendships that are deeply cherished, and became enraptured with the art of capturing ever-changing beauty in a timeless still frame. I am severely and undeservedly blessed by these loves.
In the past couple of years, my husband and I added two of our greatest joys to our lives: a precious pup, Hermione, and the coolest kid ever, Tripp. Because I’m passionate to capture the love that we have, I enjoy — all the more — preserving sweet memories for my clients-friends.
I take all of this heritage, blessing, love, and experience and use them to pour myself into producing gorgeous and timeless photographs that will be celebrated for generations by family and dear friends of their subjects. I am honored and humbled to observe and partake in these lives’ most tender moments, preserving them as reminders for future viewing.
While shooting, I strive, first, to get to know you. While hearing of yourself and those you love, I am then able to capture your gorgeous, natural beauty.
I look forward to getting to know you as we work together in the near future!
