Intimacy has the ability to show up in every part of your life. From the conversations you have, to the hugs you share, to the unspoken energy. It’s there and it’s my favorite place to be. I seek to be in the wave of intimacy when my hand and eye meet another. I seek to be in the intimate adage of verbal and physical transactions.

“The world is for us to share. Not for one to own.”
The Lord is my guiding light, all my creativity belongs to Him – as I would not be able to do what I do without His blessing. The seasons of life change ever so quickly, or they can change ever so slowly. I am in the ‘so quickly’ stage as my 15-year-old is in high school and my 11-year-old is in middle. AND my husband is about to retire from the United States Marine Corps almost 21 years later. When they say life is short, life is short… it’s not a lie, so live as you were called to live… to love all and serve all. ALSO, enjoy the music, find a new song everyday – here is one for you if you do not know it, “Family/Best is Yet to Come,” by Judah & The Lion.
When creating with me, I like for us to explore more than the typical “pretty picture.” Please inquire with a bit of a story about who is being photographed and why this particular season of life is asking for heirloom documentation. I am local to Topsail Beach, North Carolina, but I do travel for sessions.
"Knowin' the truth, seein' the truth, and tellin' the truth, are all different experiences."
After my second photographers workshop, I literally crawled into a fetal position and cried when I got home. I felt like there was absolutely nothing left of me. It takes me 2-3 full days to recoup from a Workshop and a good solid day from a 1:1 Mentorship…all this is said with a true and honest heart.
I believe the best way to teach is to create 100% for me, not for what would be the trendiest approach, but what would be the most unique experience for you, so that you get to see every avenue of how I style and shoot.
You will see how I make mistakes, mis focus, edit, and re-edit a session, how there is no “right way” – there is just your way. Creating an experience for you is my ultimate goal. People will always remember how you made them feel, right? Focusing on how to create the best business model from your clients experience, to backend business details, to your brand… all this will be covered and any of your specific curiosities and questions for me will be answered.
I hope I can transport you into their moment together in these images. But, I figured it might be best if mom told her side.
If you’re ready to get a killer photo for that wall of yours…
