I'm so glad we've connected through my online "home!" If you're new here, here's the scoop: I'm married to my second shooter and best friend, Jimmy. We're raising the most handsome little toddler and two furbabies in the suburbs of Chattanooga, Tennessee. And for me, photography's not just about taking photos, because my business is a ministry.

Whether I'm capturing weddings for my AR Couples or fleeting seasons for families, providing resources for wedding planning, or just simply sharing glimpses into my everyday life as a mother and business owner on Instagram, I'm hoping to build genuine relationships that create an impact in people's lives and my community. So, welcome! Now, let's get to know each other and get you in front of my camera!

here's to making new friends!

Hey there!

more About me
this way!

I'm a mommy, wifey to my second shooter, enneagram 1w3, and obsessed with all-things-nature. I left my position as a Master-level Social Worker to run my photography business full-time. Before making that decision, I didn’t think that I could make the same difference in people’s lives through “just photography” as I could using my degree. But, I believe that God gave me my photography skills and opportunity to run a business for a divine reason. God doesn’t waste gifts, only we do when we serve fear instead of faith! So, for me, photography's a ministry. There are no accidental bookings. And that gets me pretty stinkin' excited!
