My husband inspires me... He is my rock, my supporter, and my love. I am constantly encouraged by him! Building relationships as an entrepreneur also intensely fuels my fire and pushes me to be better while serving others through my work. And even more, my faith keeps me going throughout this journey by teaching me more about how I can use my God-given talents than I could have ever imagined.
For the most part, yes! I completed one college class and attended a few conferences, but I continually learn from the photography community around me - reading (lots of reading!), observing, watching videos, and shooting. Photographing love and life push me to learn more each and every time I pick up my camera. Outside of photography, I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication and Rhetorical Studies.
I love shooting in the warm, golden, and glowing light of a summer sunset. There is something about the gorgeous sunset light that makes me feel so fulfilled and faithful in creating. But don't get me wrong, I LOVE a snowy session, capturing the blooming colors of spring, and the warm oranges and reds of fall. Every season brings me happiness as another season to photograph.
Yes! I specialize in wedding and family photography. I would love to share recommendations of some of my fav photog friends that specialize in areas outside of my specialty if you’re looking for a newborn, extended family, or senior photographer!
YES! Feel free to reach out to me via my contact form to say hello and talk about setting up a one-on-one mentoring session. And yes, there will most definitely be coffee AND cake!
Lightroom CC and a task timer. I love the streamlined, less stress workflow that Lightroom allows me to have, and my task timer keeps me on track!
It's true, my 85mm f/1.4 wins! I reach for this lens pretty much 85% of the time, and I've been hooked ever since I photographed with it for the first time. It allows such a natural, real perspective. A couple years ago, my answer would have been my 50mm f/1.4, but that all changed when I met the dreamy 85mm. And yes, I'm a prime lens kinda gal!
