Wow . . . about me . . . I always find these sections the most difficult to write. I'm a mom, wife, sister, daughter . . . photographer, gym addict, fruit-lover, Nerd-eater, Mac-lovin', I-everything chick. I absolutely love photography and the emotion that it can invoke. A picture isn't just a picture . . . it's nothing unless you feel something when you look at it. I pride myself in creative, meaningful photography. Mostly candid and fun, seldom-posed, and full of emotion. In a nutshell, that's it.
I've been photographing since my very first Canon A-1 film camera back in high school. I started with landscapes, nature, and such when I was in high school and at Clemson, then in 2007 I moved into portraiture and weddings. My specialties are Newborns, High School Seniors, Couples and Weddings, and I also love working with families and children. I have enjoyed expanding my knowledge-base through workshops, conventions, and classes from world-renowned photographers.
In my spare time, I work out, teach classes at my gym, and am studying for my AFAA Personal Training Certification. I enjoy spending time with my 9 year old twins, Aaron and Noah, and my husband, Travis. We love being outdoors and traveling to the Western North Carolina mountains when we can. I also spend a lot of time with my mom, two sisters, and nieces Mckenna and Amelia! I am based out of Fort Mill, SC and serve the Charlotte, NC area as well as the Upstate of SC. As always, I'm available for travel!
