I’m going on a 4-month adventure! If I could go back in time and tell my corporate self that future me would buy a one-way ticket to Croatia and spend 4 months traveling with people I didn’t know, I’m not sure I would’ve believed it. But in less than two weeks, instead of working in […]

Rain was in the forecast all week, and the day before our session it poured ALL DAY. We had a Plan B and thought we might need to reschedule, but it looked like Sunday morning would just be partly cloudy. We were golden. So golden in fact, that when I got to the session I didn’t […]

Iceland. Where do I begin? One of the most stunning and unique places I’ve been lucky enough to experience. And the best part is that I got to see it in a campervan, an adventure I’d been crushing on for a while. Road tripping the entire Ring Road was such a cool way to see […]
My photography style is editorial, clean and natural. I help modern families like yours create high-quality photos you'll love. I move moments from my lens to your home and make the process fun and easy. My goal is to capture genuine emotion and to help you feel comfortable and confident in front of my camera. I love incorporating meaningful details so you'll walk away with images that are true to who you are.
I'm a North Texas Photographer who values creative living, cultivating relationships and empowering others. When I'm not photographing families, you'll find me reading a good book, exploring new creative outlets, spending time with family or seeking my next travel adventure. Just a couple of years ago you would've found me in heels, sitting in a cubicle, planning my escape from the corporate ladder into a career I love.

I remember sitting on the floor of my parents' room, eagerly looking through family photos. Photos of me and photos of my siblings. Photos of my parents and photos of my grandparents. Photos in albums and photos in shoeboxes. It didn't matter. I loved looking through these memories of the past because it gave me a glimpse into my life and into the lives of my family before I was born.

My journey as a photographer began long before I learned how to use a fancy camera. It began when I fell in love with the idea of real moments captured in still form.
What I do as a photographer is important. I don't save lives; I document them. And that's an honor I don't take lightly. I promise.
Have any questions for me? I'd love to hear from you. Either complete the form below, or email me directly at:
