I've been keeping journals since I was in the 3rd grade and I'm so glad to share some of my most intimate life moments with you here!  Here, you'll find inspirational stories of clients, my journey as a wife and first-time mother and other adventures I have that makes my world go 'round. So please, sit back, grab some coffee ( or my personal favorite, a good ol' fashioned Arnold Palmer!) and enjoy exploring my latest work! Thanks for stopping by and happy reading!

welcome to my

journal!

MS. JENNIE | A COZY AND GOLDEN BLACK RAPIDS, ALASKA SESSION

There are all kinds of roadblocks, twists and turns that we all have endured, are enduring right now and will endure. […]

VERSONA | MY LOVE FOR HAMPTON ROADS | SACHEL SAMONE | LOVE & PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER

I’m what you may consider “a girly girl.” I adore heels, cute dresses (with pockets!!), shoes, hats…EVERYTHING. But when it comes to fashion, there is one thing I adore more than anything.
