I am a small town girl from central KY.

I am a momma to three beautiful human babies (although two of them aren't real-ly babies anymore), and three fur babies. I love Star Wars and I have mild obsession with all things llama and unicorn.

I've been a photographer since 2012, and although my name and technique has changed since then, my passion hasn't! I would love to work with you! My mission is to capture your story. Let's put all the love, joy, chaos, and even tears in front of the lens and create a beautiful gallery that you can 𝕗𝕖𝕖𝕝.

Education & Experience

I am a graduate of the New York Institute of Photography, although I believe that my education will never be "finished." I also have a degree in Business Administration, although by the time I graduated with that one, photography had begun to take up most of my time.

I started my photography journey on the sideline of the football field, taking action shots under the Friday night lights. The parents of the players took notice and I got my first paid job photographing a wedding. From there, I photographed a lot of high school seniors, but soon realized that I really wanted to shift my focus to newborn and child portraiture. I did my first newborn session in 2013 and although it was tough and didn't go as I'd hoped, I was head-over-heels in love! I began to educate myself; I watched every posing tutorial I could find on YouTube. Finally, in 2017, I began to see vast improvements in my work and I found the confidence to call myself a newborn photographer!

My Studio

Like most photographers, I started out only doing outdoor sessions and then slowly ventured into purchasing lighting and backdrops, which I setup in my living room. We eventually convertered our garage into a home studio, but in 2018 we found out we were expecting baby #3 and had to convert the studio into another bedroom!

Now I work out of a cozy little studio in my backyard. Babies and toddlers in the studio are my favorites. There isn't a lot of room in there for family sessions, but I'm always happy to try to honor requests for a family shot in the studio.

I'm not a cold weather gal, but I do love capturing sweet family sessions outdoors where your kids can run, play, and really have FUN during our session. My style is photojournalistic, which simply means that I'm more of a real life story teller, as opposed to a perfect poser. However, I don't typically schedule outdoor sessions after Thanksgiving until after Easter, unless the weather is just unseasonably warm.

My studio is a cozy 288 sq feet. It is packed with all the essentials for newborn and child studio portraiture. One thing this tiny space has taught me is that it's okay to rotate props and backdrops now and again! I tend to want to hold on to every photography related object I've ever purchased, so this tiny space has been good for me.

The space is also equipped with a comfy seating area for parents, and you're more than welcome to bring refreshments!
