It’s hard to put some things into words. How can I describe how special this engagement session was? I’d have to explain how I met Cassandra several years ago, how she quickly became one of my closest friends, and how I prayed and prayed that God would send her a great guy. I’d have to […]

IN THE BEGINNING… When I first decided to be a wedding photographer, there was one thing I was determined to do: make my clients feel LOVED. (Side note for all you business owners: the quickest way to LOSE your JOY is to make your business all about YOU!) As I matured into a full-fledged wedding photographer, […]

I LOVE engagement sessions. There is just NOTHING like hanging out with a guy and girl who are hopelessly in love and couldn’t hide it if they tried!

Each picture is a favorite of mine for a different reason, from quiet moments, to deep belly laughs and tears of joy. I can’t even BELIEVE how wonderful each and every couple has […]

The Fateful Meeting On March 16th, 2015 I shook hands with a tall, dark Italian and my life changed forever. I had just come out of a difficult season in life, and was looking forward to graduating college and adventuring on my own for a while. Starting my own photography business was a brewing idea, […]

Life is beautiful. Yes, I know you’ve heard that line before! Sometimes we believe it and sometimes it is a little harder to swallow. There are days when the birds sing, the trees sway, and all is right in the world… and then comes the storm that chills us to the bone. It is hard to see […]

Sometimes I sigh and wish for snow. Living in Florida has its ups and downs, and the lack of a snowy Christmas season is definitely one of the latter. I have often griped, complained, whined, lamented, (you name it) over the lack of a real winter! This Mongolian girl does not do heat and humidity. However, despite […]
