Thank you for visiting and taking an interest in my work. I'm so glad you're here!
I'm first and foremost a mom to one spectacular kiddo and wife to my best friend.
I'm also a published family and children's fine art photographer from Spring Hill, TN - serving the Middle TN area!
I started out my photographic journey in 2019 with lifestyle photography. My son is my biggest inspiration and muse for my creativity. I love capturing his milestones and our moments together. If you're a parent then you can probably relate! Our children grow entirely too fast. One moment you'll have squishy baby faces and rolls and the next moment they're running around everywhere and climbing trees. Lifestyle photography is one of my favorite genres because I love the stories and details of life that the photographs tell. Unlike documentary photography where the subject is unaware of the photographer, in lifestyle photography there is still planning and preparation, but the images are captured in a way to express personality and capture who your children are in this stage of their life.
In this day and age of everyone having a smartphone to capture photos of their kids, what sets me apart is my creativity, attention to details, and creating high quality works of art for you to proudly display in your home and cherish forever. I spend a lot of time before, during, and after a session to make sure that I get the details right for each individual child. It's very important to me to capture who THEY are. Their unique personality and their emotions and expressions, captured in a professional and creative way is my goal for every session.
It brings me so much joy to share my skills and artwork with other parents who value the importance of photography.
After all, our children are our greatest works of art.
"Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, and dreams are forever."
I'm very blessed and honored that my work has been published and featured!
