Boy Mama | Luxury Wedding Photographer | Storyteller
My heart lives for the big events. I was always the girl sobbing over wedding and military coming home videos on youtube. I love the simple things in life, I love gifting, and I LOVE being included in life's most happiest moments.
I'm an enneagram type 3w2.
Fun fact: I am a Licensed Medical Massage Therapist (but my passion is fully in Wedding Photography).
My ideal afternoon is happily accepting all the sticks and leaves my 3 year old brings me as gifts, the belly laughs from my 1 year old, and the nights with a cozy blanket, some yummy snacks, and laughs about life with my partner, Zakia.
with my beautiful family:
My two boys, Ronan & Ryker, and my gorgeous partner, Zakia.
from my slobbery, messy, but oh so beautiful Ryker.
from my wild 3 year old that usually makes me either want to rip my hair out or have to walk away before he sees that i'm laughing. He's lucky he's cute!
The one who keeps me laughing, is my biggest cheerleader, and who holds me tight when life gets rough.
If you see me out without a coffee, that's a red flag and approach with caution.
Macys! Our super loving, silly, protective English Bulldog, and the very furriest member of our family!
all of the greenway walks, sticks to throw, and leaves to inspect. Bonus points for finding bug friends!
Things really took off when my own photographer for my wedding allowed me to complete an apprenticeship under her. I purchased her old camera, my first real lens, and haven't put down my camera since.
In high school, my boyfriend got me my very own Nikon camera for Christmas one year and I was HOOKED. I took pictures of anyone and everyone that would let me. I signed up for all the photography classes through high school and college that I could and eventually, started my own business.
In addition to photography and family, I have a few other interests:
1. Disney - I am the BIGGEST Disney freak. I usually go once a year! Within the next five years, I would love to become a member of the DVC family. My own son had his first Disney trip at 2 months old!
2. Breakfast food - One of my main cravings while I was pregnant was maple syrup. Turns out my son is also a breakfast person! I'm all about breakfast all the time. Want to meet up to discuss photography plans? Suggest meeting for breakfast and I will be the happiest girl alive.
