"Photography is more than the click of a shutter; it's creating images that'll last a lifetime"
Cows. I started my photographic journey taking photos of beef cattle in the field in front of my childhood home. In high school, I studied photojournalism and yearbook, continuing the journey in college on the yearbook staff and after graduation as a journalist for a weekly newspaper.
I captured my first wedding in 2010 and the rest is, as they say, history. I love capturing the stories of my couples and portrait clients. For me, it's about creating memories that will last a lifetime. It's making sure my brides are treated how I would want my daughter treated on her wedding day. It's being there for one of the most important days in my clients' lives and then seeing them again to capture their first photos as a family of three and then four. It's creating images that'll adorn their walls, their children's walls and their grandchildren's walls. It's so much more than just the click of a shutter.
When I'm not photographing, I'm often spending time with my family which includes my husband (and second shooter) Ron, our daughter Hartley and our dog, Buddy.
I'm partial to fall and summer, but spring has my heart. There is no better time of the year than when the flowers and trees start blooming and the days become longer and warmer. Fall is beautiful, too, as is summer, but spring is by far the best.
I love the coast--beaches, lighthouses, sunsets. Whether its annual trips to the Outer Banks or visiting Beaufort, Emerald Isle, Charleston, New England, even the Caribbean, if there's sand involved and waterfront breezes, I'm a happy girl.
