I'm a lifestyle portrait + wedding photographer based in the New River Valley of southwest Virginia. Most of my sweet clients are here in Virginia, but I've served clients as far away as sunny Florida and I'm pretty much always ready + willing to travel somewhere new for a session or wedding! I'm incredibly grateful to be living my happily ever after with my soulmate, Jason (the handsome guy in these photos!), and our sweet, furry Mona girl!
I believe with all my heart that life is about relationships, and that relationships deserve to be honored. Whether you're engaged, getting ready to welcome an itty bitty new family member, or just wanting to remember this season because you know it will be gone in the blink of an eye, I am so honored that you would consider inviting me to share it with you! I can't wait to celebrate with you and capture images that will honor you, your relationships, and your story.
a few things you should know about me
if it weren't for Jesus working in my life, I don't know where I would be today. even when I lose hope, He is faithful and He never stops pursuing my heart.
there's something about a big, welcoming front porch on a classic southern home that makes my little heart skip a beat. I love how it invites visitors to take a seat, grab a fresh cup of coffee (or a glass of sweet tea) and get lost in conversation. y'all - give me good coffee, good company, and a slow summer evening on my front porch and I'm one happy girl.
I've grown up + settled down in two of Virginia's best small towns! I love the adventure of exploring a big city when I get the chance, but at the end of the day, my heart is at home in a small town.
if I have anything to say about it, the only coffee that makes it into my (admittedly excessive) collection of mugs (thank you, Target) is coffee that has been locally roasted + freshly ground, with a bold flavor + a smooth, fruity finish.
to the sweetest black + tan coonhound you'll ever meet. her name is Mona + her snuggles are my sunshine.
