a lover of Jesus, my family, laughter, luminous light and joy-filled moments.

MY simple jOYS INCLUDE BEING A WIFE TO JEB, MAMA TO my two adorable babies (and one on the way!), lightly sweetened iced coffee, anD DATE NIGHTS WITH MY cute HUSBAND TO EAT SOME GOOD OL' TEX-MEX. tacos and margaritas?
hello, love language! 

my personality is uppity, fun and i'll probably give you compliments left and right. i love traveling and seeing god's creation with my own two eyes. it's especially sweet when i see the joy on my kid's faces when they tube down snowy hills, build sandcastles or see
 "big ol' pweety mountains" 
as my kid's say.
we sure are texans, huh? ha!

 i picked up my very first medium format film camera after my daughter was born and i haven't put it down since. Jesus put a burning desire in my heart to document other love stories and not just my own. i'm incredibly passionate about capturing the tender and beauty in-between the chaotic moments of motherhood and the spark and fire between two love birds.

"PHOTOGRAPHY IS ONE OF THE FEW INVESTMENTS YOU CAN MAKE THAT WILL ONLY INCREASE IN VALUE THE LONGER YOU OWN IT."

- AARON SISKIND



 i believe in real moments and raw emotion.

i believe in capturing mama singing to her baby softly in a rocking chair and twirling with her toddlers in the living room. i believe in children being themselves is the joy you'll feel years down the road when you look back and relive those moments when they were once so little. i believe in those once-in-a-lifetime images like saying i do to your forever fairytale or the delightful moments of dancing and laughing in front of my lens with your love.

your love story is perfectly unique and you deserve pictures that portray that. as your photographer, i promise to make your pinterest wall gallery dreams come true and an experience worth investing in.
