I am passionate about using creativity to tell your stories and play a part in capturing that special memory or moment for you!

Natural lighting is my jam. I love to capture and create honest, natural emotions and moments. In my photos, I try to balance posing and allow raw and real moments to come about, capturing them as they come.

I have created my own presets and consistently change them to fit each individual session! I would describe my editing style as light and airy with hints of shadows and cool tones.

I am super blessed to have worked with so many wonderful families, couples, and individuals.
