22 years old. Born and raised in the beautiful Appalachian mountains of West Virginia. In love, engaged and soon to be married. Studying photography at Marshall University. Sold out to Jesus Christ. My life is for Him, and photography is an avenue of worship that I will not take credit for.
I love to travel. I want to see a new place every day. My favorite part about this job is meeting new people and spending quality time with them. I cannot focus on anything else if there is a bulldog within eyesight. My family is my everything. I've been told my greatest strength is building relationships. Lucky me, that's a huge part of the job as the photographer. My first spark of interest in photography came with finding a gem of a camera at an estate sale. From that, I've been collecting antique cameras by the handful. I love being behind a camera and seeing you through the lens. Let's make it happen.
When I set up a photoshoot with my clients, I don’t view them as clients. When I am planning on photographing you, I plan to build a relationship with you. I do this in order to know you. I find that this is the best way to get your emotions, your comfort, and your personality into the image. When I photograph you, I’m capturing your personality. I prefer to keep a professional relationship with my clients prior to the event at hand in order to create a stress-free, comfortable environment.
My goal (besides getting you the best product that I'm capable of) is to allow you to have a beyond wonderful experience while I photograph you and/or your event. If I can get a true smile out of you, I know that I've done my job, and the final product will be much more enjoyable, too.
While this hobby that I absolutely love doing is completely an out-of-pocket experience, I want to give you the best experience possible. Ready to get started? Contact me. We will get coffee, get to know each other, and then we'll get started at making some beautiful portraits to show off something you're proud of to your friends, family, and strangers in the line at the grocery store.
