Capture real love.
Become your friend.
I grew up with a 35mm camera in my face...all the time...thanks to my Dad. He was always there recording all parts of mine and my sister's life. I bet you can guess who made me fall in love with photography...yep, that's right. My father. Through my childhood all the way to high school I had always seen myself being a photographer. I went to college, studied many different majors planning to do photography on the side and finally one day, switched my major for the fifth time to PHOTOGRAPHY. I couldn't believe I had finally followed my heart. Since then, I have interned with WNC Magazine in Asheville, NC where I photographed many Western North Carolina towns, local restaurants, food, artists and events. After Asheville, I moved to Greenville, SC where I currently reside. I continue to independently explore my passion for the arts as a local photographer. My areas of expertise include portraiture & poetic imagery, ultimately allowing my subjects to explore & express personal journeys of self-evolution & healing.
OHER RANDOM FACTS:
Cyanotypes are my jam.
I drink coffee daily and can't function without it.
I love my pup Buster more than anyone in this world and a lot of people say he's not a "pup" but I will always say he's my 8 year old 110lb. pup.
Getting outdoors is extremely important to me and I am beyond grateful for time outside.
I run my tail off and try to practice yoga weekly.
I have an obsession with snow.
The best beer is a sour beer.
That's all I got.
