Hey you! I am so thankful you stopped by!

 I wish you were sitting on my back porch with me and I could hear all about you and your family. I met my husband Jeremy when I was a freshman in college and we’ve been married for 17 years. I am a lucky girl, ya’ll. We have four children, 3 girls and a boy. Gracie is a sports nut, Piper is artistic and loves to cook, Reese is cuddly and crazy, and Grey is ALL BOY and we are all stinkin crazy about him. 

  My love for photography began when I graduated from high school and my aunts and uncles bought me a nice camera as a gift. It had that advantix film. Remember that? That camera went all over Europe and carried me through nursing school. Once we had our second daughter, I used my Christmas money for my first digital slr. I needed something to capture the kids in motion!  From there I began taking pictures of my kids and the neighbors kids and learning how to use my camera. And then people started asking me to photograph their families. And my passion grew.  Today, I get excited as I talk to you about your vision for your family shoot. What story will your family’s pictures tell? I love to capture the emotions between mom and her kids or Dad and his son. It just never gets old. Or maybe you are pregnant and we get to talk maternity pictures and newborn shoots! Eeek! You are glowing and beautiful and you are getting ready to deliver a miracle. What a story we have to tell.

THINGS I KNOW TO BE TRUE:

– I am a recovering perfectionist

– I married up

– I want to honor the Lord in all that I say and do

– You can usually find me on the softball field or basketball court cheering on my kids (too loudly)

– My dream is to be a humanitarian photographer

– My family and I love to be on the water.  Whether it’s the beach or lake, we are so there

– Sweet tea speaks my love language

– My favorite room in the house is the screened porch.  My least favorite is the kitchen

– I love to clean

– I have my BSN and loved working as a labor and delivery nurse.

   But after having my first baby I wanted to be able to stay home with her
