Welcome TO THE

I met Amanda in 2016 at Carolina Barre and Core located in Lafayette Village (there is now also a second location closer to NC State). Two years ago I took photos of her and Joel just for fun, and then again last year when they were announcing they were pregnant! I felt honored that Amanda […]

Cat is the daughter of my previous supervisor I had while working as an administrative assistant. Her daughter lived in the town where Mike and I had been living before we moved down to Raleigh! While we were in Maryland for the weekend, I connected with Cat and her family to capture this wonderful family […]

When Mike and I first moved to Raleigh we, for lack of a better term, shopped around for a church to attend. When we were in our deciding process, we attending a Young Professionals gathering at The Summit Church. It was here that we met Megan. She became our first official friend in Raleigh! We […]

Photographers often forget to photograph themselves. Lucky enough for me, my mother forces (asks) us kiddos to take a photo every year at Thanksgiving that she can use for her Christmas cards. This year I managed to get a couple photos of Mom & Dad mixed in there, too! The new family dog, Scooby, also […]

First of all, can it just be fall FOREVER? I mean, just look at that gorgeous orange tree! Or that beautiful golden light. Plus, Claire’s dress just screams fall and I love it, don’t you? Fun fact, Claire and I actually met when we were in 7th grade at a county run theater camp. Let’s […]

Just in case you didn’t know, the only thing better than ONE adorable, 3-years-old, fashionable, blonde-haired beauty is TWO! These identical twin girls share a special sisterly bond that will be so special as they grow up. It was a perfect fall day when I met with Addison & McKenzie and their sweet Momma at […]

We absolutely love with Shannon & Alex come to visit because there’s always a chance that we can capture more photos of them! As some of you may know, Shannon and I met when we were both interning at Young Life’s Rockbridge Alum Springs in the summer of 2012. One of the best things about […]

Shawna and I both serve on the production team at The Summit Church. A few weeks ago, I met up with her sweet fam at the North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro, NC. I hung around with them for about an hour and snapped some candid photos from the morning. I am absolutely OBSESSED with the […]

MY DREAM CAME TRUE, Y’ALL! I got to photograph an ENGLISH BULLDOG (and her cute family, too). Lindsey, Justin, and Levi are such an adorable family–it’s so clear the love these two parents have for their first born! Okay, enough from me, I know y’all are here to see pictures of a cute baby and […]

Back in April, Mike and I went to Kill Devil Hills in the Outer Banks for a family reunion with his mom’s side of the family. I was asked to bring my camera along and snap some portraits while we were all together. The weather was absolutely perfect on Saturday and we had so much […]
