I'm a passionate photographer of 16 years but I'm also:
My mission is to help you do just that. To make passing moments permanent is my offering to the communities, and individuals, I serve. My hope is that I can show others the truth that the lens reveals. Beauty, grace, the power of a comeback, the strength of the story and the decadence of a dream chased so vigorously it can't possibly be "untrue."
Life is short and inevitably fleeting. The best we can do is leave our mark!
1. a person who takes photographs, especially as a job.
I am not what you see defined above. Well, I am, but I am so much more.
I am a seasoned moment-maker, posing professional, energy-enhancer, and dream-builder.
My lens reveals what your eyes can't see.
My studio brings life to your visions.
My stills tell the stories that can't be captured in mere words.
Decades ago, I never would have believed my life would lead me to creating such magic as this! Over 19 years, my family has been an integral part of my ability to stay relatable - as I too juggle the career and daily demands of growing children and nurturing a loving marriage. I don't need to stand in your shoes. I have a twin pair. Different size, perhaps a different color, but the shoes of a dreamer and juggler nonetheless.
Based in Tallahassee, I work with clients from the sea to the trees - ranging from the Panhandle and up into South Georgia. I believe in service to the community, giving back what you receive and reaping what you sow, so my footwork is seen in my personal life and in my professional space. I serve on many non-profit boards and am an advocate for youth in my community as well. It's a lot easier to make a "pretty picture" realistic when it is just that! I aim to make my "life picture" edit-free.
I live on both sides of the lens too! I wear many hats - or should I say crowns! I recently turned my crown over to the 2023 Mrs. Florida America after serving the title and placing in the top 15 in Mrs. America. Can you say "bucket list?" This venture has allowed me to breathe even more life into the wild dreams of the clients I work with.
I am different from the rest.
I am not just your photographer.
I won't just take your picture.
I will collide with your vision using my lens.
I will co-create your path and help make it come true.
I will coach you, support you, and push you into making a still shot come to life!
My 16 years in the industry has allowed me to SHOW you that dreams are possible. It's allowed me to experience the ups and downs of business building, the power of brand development, and most importantly, the unshakable human spirit in all its visual glory.
I don't need to try to understand you. I am you! My knowledge of your business comes from developing multiple businesses over the years myself. That's my edge. I see it, because I have done it and am still doing it today.
Dream fruition starts with an "I am" mentality - one that I will demand from you too. To make it easier, I'll go first...
I AM the posing queen.
I AM the visionary master.
I AM the brand boss.
I AM YOUR photographer!
Our dreams require us to step out of our comfort zones and take a leap of faith.
For someone like me who is deathly afraid of heights, the jumping metaphor can be paralyzing.
Dancing makes me happy and brings me so much joy. It still pushes me out of my comfort zone and is way more fun than the jump.
Scared to take a leap? It's okay! Just come dance with me!
