“...the solution to an overbusy life is not more time. It’s to slow down and simplify our lives around what really matters.”

Hello dear friend! Thanks so much for stopping by. I should start by saying I'm a fine art wedding, brand, and family photographer, but what I'm going to say is this. Life is full of ups and downs and one thing I can say for sure is my God is steadfast. All that I am and all that I do is because of His grace! I'm a wife to the hottest chiropractor, Nathan, and we have two blonde haired, brown eyed kids, Niyah Jane and Eli Jude. A few things about US: We eat enough scrambled eggs in our family that we totally became chicken parents and it's been the best thing ever. I'm slightly OCD and if I can handle chickens, you can too. No, really. I vacuum every day because I'm crazy and the other 95% of the time I'm juggling any number of things from building legos to homeschooling our seven and five year old. Most summer nights you can find us outside gardening as the sun sets (more like admiring our plant babies), running the trail along the water, making a passionfruit margarita, or doing some sort of project because we're terrible at sitting still. And in the winter? We're early risers over here, hitting the gym before 6 am followed by red light therapy, cold plunging, and usually there's a loaf or two of sourdough in the oven before 9 am. And most evenings we pull out all the cozy blankets and read or watch our favorite shows (actually it's more like we spend a solid 30 minutes deciding what to watch, never decide, then end up just going to bed...we're not the only ones who do this, right? 

I wish I could take the credit for this business, but really, my mom is the one who has been my biggest cheerleader. We photographed our first wedding together in 2010...she's my very best friend and the best Mimi to our kids that I could ever hope for. Doing what I love, I've been able to travel the country and photograph destination weddings and thriving restaurants, incredible families and couples in love.  But more than that, I've built lasting relationships with clients who are now dear friends, and that's what matters most to me. I feel so blessed to spend each day doing what I love. I wish I could invite you over for dinner tonight and hear more about your story, and welcome you into mine. I can guarantee you'd get a full dose of laughs from our kids and you'd leave with a full tummy. I can't wait to get to know you!
