I'm a redheaded photog based in the heart of Virginia! I’ve lived here my whole life, and my favorite part is that I'm super close to the mountains and the beach. But, the Virginia countryside is my favorite place to be. Nothing makes me happier than golden hour, and a curvy backroad with the windows down. Warm weather is my jam. I’m an April baby, so I'm kinda partial to springtime (anyone else a Taurus??) I'm also obsessed with astrology! Theres just something about the stars and the universe that have me in awe.
As you can see by a lottt of my photos, horses also have a place in my life. The connection between horse and human is something that I value greatly. The trust and forgiveness that comes from riding is something that I strive to learn more about everyday. As you also probably know, I'm a little bit of a crazy cat lady. I have two little babies named Cedar and Sage. They are the sweetest, little beings out there and I'm currently writing this as sage is passed out on my lap and purring!! Follow me on insta to keep up with their daily cuteness!!
Early on in my business I decided to make sunflowers part of my logo and brand. Why? It’s simple. Sunflowers bring me joy. They make me genuinely happy.. I mean, have you twirled through a sunflower field?! No? Put that on your summer bucket list!! They are hands down my favorite flower and I try to buy anything and I just want them everywhere!
A lot of people ask me what my “why” is for being a photographer. Anyone can take a picture. Hell, anyone can take a decent photo with today's technology. But I feel like it takes more than that to really capture a moment, and a memory in an image. It takes a connection. And thats what I strive for in my business. I'm not just a photographer you hire, I want to be your friend, I want to know you, I want to listen to you, and I want to tell your story. I want you to look back at your photos and I want it to take you to a place in time, and I don’t want you to remember just what it looked like, I want you to remember the feeling, the sounds, the place, and the smells.
My little babies! Cedar is the tabby boy, and Sage is my torti girl. They have such different personalities! They will be a year old in July <3
The mountains are my happy place! I even have a tattoo dedicated to them, haha. I love hiking and even just driving through them!
I have a slight obsession with my boots ;) I wear them everywhere and I always look for an excuse to buy a new pair! My go-to brand is Ariat!
