I am an international fine art family photographer based out of the greater Topsail Beach area - including Surf City, Wilmington, Jacksonville, all of North Carolina and beyond.
I'm overwhelmingly grateful that I've had the opportunity to photograph clients from the east coast to the west coast and everywhere in between - plus Europe and the Caribbean.
I've specialized in film and digital family photography for over a decade and hold two Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees, in Photography and in Communication Art & Design.

My work is intimate, emotive, and artistic. I value deep relationships - both developing them with my clients and those around me as well as photographing them. I use both film and digital photography to capture your memories and create heirlooms to be treasured long after your lifetime.
My sessions often involve: splashing in the waves, dancing on rooftops, hiking woodsy paths, laying in breezy meadows, and running in the road.
Hang out with me and my camera and you're guaranteed to laugh or cry, or both. I consider getting to know each of my clients and creating a beautiful, unique visual record of their story an honor and a treasure.
When this cute boy with long skater hair asked to date me in the 8th grade I thought he was pretty awesome but was certain our middle school romance would ever last. It turns out he knew all along. Seventeen years later and I'm more grateful for him every day.
In the first couple of months of having two children I wondered what we had gotten ourselves into but most days I still can't believe I get to call them mine. Everett and Hazel are our two little lights. Being their mama is the best job I've ever had.
I was born on a warm tropical day in Honolulu, Hawaii to an Army couple and spent my entire childhood moving place to place and traveling the world. My family moved to Germany when I was ten and my love of travel exploded during our European adventures.
I've photographed clients in Italy, California, Texas, South Carolina, Virginia, Washington D. C., Georgia, Illinois, Tennessee, West Virginia, Indiana, Ohio, and Kentucky. I'm always looking for an excuse to grab my bag and hit the road.
Travel has my heart
Driving with the windows down on a summer night. Running in the road. Staying out too late with people who make you feel alive. Laughing until your face hurts. Watching the sunrise with people you love. Rocking a really good leather jacket. The feeling of falling asleep with the windows open and a light rain. I live for these moments.
