About the Photographer
Thank you for taking the time to learn about me and what I have to offer! It’s very important that any photographer you hire pairs well with your style and personality! This will ensure a smooth and fun photo experience for everybody! My style of photography is not usually traditional. My style can be described as editorial, creative, or photojournalistic. I photograph only in natural light and I focus more on candid or natural portraits versus posed portraits, therefore, my style is considered “lifestyle” photography. I do offer traditional and modern approaches to engagements, bridals, and weddings.
Here are a few fun facts about me:

- I always thought I would be a race horse jockey when I was a kid

Overall, I like to think that if I work really hard and dream big, then I will achieve all of my goals. But, I know that the Lord has a better plan than I have for myself. I am simply honored that I am able to share Jesus’ love and kindness through something that I am so passionate about. With each client my goal is to be helpful, uplifting, and to appeal to the client’s vision for each shot; therefore, producing high quality images that will exceed expectation.
“No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.” 1 John 4:12
