“Your face is marked with lines of life, put there by love and laughter, suffering and tears. It's beautiful.”
I believe a great story captivates you. It moves you and has the power to change your life. That’s why when I was a little girl, I wanted to be…a journalist. That’s right, photography was NOT on my radar! Call it curiosity or just plain nosiness, but I’ve always been drawn to a great story...stories of joy and pain, sunshine and rain...stories of loves lost and happily ever afters...stories that stretch and shape us into who we are. And that passion..that obsession of finding and telling great stories is why I became a photographer. While it was journalism that taught me how to document life, photography taught me how to see life and every day, with every client, every session and every story I hear, I learn something that makes me fall more and more in love with this thing called life.
So what makes a seasoned women or couple? Time. A seasoned woman is spicy. She is strong. She is cool. Like a fine wine, she can be sweet, tart, sparkling or bold. Both a seasoned woman and a seasoned couple have been marinated in life experience. They know who they are and are committed to living their best life. The wisdom they share is priceless and to capture their spirits...to sit at their feet and learn from their stories...stories of love, motherhood, adventure and self-discovery is one of the highest honors of my life. It is my mission to use this business to glorify God with how I serve my clients, how I love my family and use my gifts to create an unforgettable experience for you!
Most days, you can either find me sitting at my computer jamming out to 70s, 80s, and 90s music or running behind J’Aiden, making sure he doesn’t put Teddy’s foot in his mouth...again. In my story, I wear multiple hats and play different characters, just like you. To see just a few of the hats I wear and learn a little bit more behind me, click below.
I’m married to Ethan, the first guy I ever kissed…when I was 7 years old! We met in the summer of 1995 and I even have journals from my childhood where I talk about how much I love him! Photographing couples is a direct link to the passion I have for my marriage. Capturing the joy and romance between a couple is such a beautiful reminder of the covenant Ethan and I made with God.
Ethan and I welcomed our baby boy, J’Aiden, into the world in January and I think it’s safe to say I’m borderline OBSESSED with him! He’s so perfect! I have NEVER known a love like this before!
We are proud also parents to the cutest bichpoo around, Teddy George! He has been lighting up our lives for almost 3 years now and I honestly can't remember what life was like without him. We've watched him grow from a tiny ball of fur with a big personality to a bigger ball of fur with a big personality and I love him more today than I did the day he flew to Anchorage. He's already such a wonderful big fur-brother to JAiden!
The mountains, the water...THE NORTHERN LIGHTS!! I've lived all over and even though I'm a Georgia native, I feel so at home in Alaska! I absolutely ADORE the Last Frontier and all it has to offer!
I started my first journal when I was in the 3rd grade. In fact, I still have that journal and every journal I've started since then! As a new mom, I don't have much time to myself, but if I can start each day off with praise music and my journal, I consider that a win! I have so many thoughts in my head and prayers in my heart and it's amazing to go back and see how far God has brought me!
Introducing me to traveling was probably one of the greatest gifts my mother ever gave me. I absolutely LOVE to travel! Seriously, there's nothing like a good adventure and I especially love sessions in different places! Whether to it's a different country or a different part of the country, getting out and exploring this world that God has created, always inspires me.
