The ability to freeze a moment in time with a photograph is a gift that I don't take for granted. I've had the honor of telling stories with my camera for 10+ years, and I don't plan on stopping anytime soon. How amazing it is to savor the beautiful life God has given us by freezing a moment in time with a photo!
Candid smiles, contagious belly laughs, the sweet embrace of your beloved, twirling in your favorite summer dress, tickle fights, enjoying a hot cup of coffee, splashing in rain puddles, walking along the beach, and baking your favorite sweet treat with your best friend + many more are memories I love documenting. Take me on your next adventure and let's make some magic together!
Stephen and I have been dating since November of 2021 and we plan to get married soon! He is a military helicopter pilot for the Indiana National Guard and my unofficial business partner. He always points me towards Christ and pushes me to be the best version of myself that I can be. I am beyond blessed by Stephen and I can't wait to start our life together! (Picture is from his flight school graduation in Alabama in November, 2023)
I am so blessed to have grown in up in such a godly, faith-filled home with wonderful, supportive parents and 3 younger siblings who have all proven to be geniuses LOL I am the only one in the family who doesn't have some kind of job related to math, but I'm ok with that! I am very much a home girl and love it when we're all together since it doesn't happen very often anymore. I am almost ready to leave the nest when I get married in the next year, but I am grateful to be able to stay close by :)
I'm so blessed to be the co-small group leader to these crazy girls at my church! I became a leader of this group when they were in 7th grade and my life has been so much better because of it. They're not even seniors yet, and I already get teary-eyed when I think of them graduating. Our weekly meetings at youth group are always so much fun and our own separate get-togethers are my absolute favorite! Their love for the Lord and desire to live for Him make my heart burst! I love these girls so much and can't imagine my life without them.
Man oh man, I still get giddy when the lighting, composition, and my subject all line up in the most perfect way to get some Insta AND website-worthy photos. Now don’t get me wrong, I promise I’ll deliver the most perfect photos to you, but there’s always a few that stand out and end up being the favorites! I live for photos that capture your genuine smiles and candid personality. I have one other job plus multiple volunteer roles in addition to my photography, but I'm so thankful I get to do what I'm passionate about and love so much on a regular basis!
I don’t really think I need to explain this one much, but I’m still going to! I can’t drink coffee black (yet) because it’s just way too bitter, but I only put in a little cream and sugar 😊 Otherwise, a dirty chai latte (that’s just a chai latte with espresso in it) or a toffee nut white mocha is my go-to! Coffee is one of the few things I consider a necessity in life, apart from Jesus anyways. I used to volunteer in my church’s coffee shop, The Perk Coffee House, before I got employed in the church office and I absolutely loved it!
Our God is SO creative and really shows off his glory through nature, and I just love taking it all in (camera in hand or not!). I got to go out West for the first time in March of 2023 and I'm still not over it! The mountains were absolutely GORGEOUS!! I have dreams to travel and see the world one day, and I'm hoping to get hired to photograph some destination weddings and elopements sooner than later!
