meet your photographer
Known for: being a hard-core #Swiftie, love of banana peppers, and endless, organized checklists.
Being a wedding and newborn photographer is one of the most unique careers that allows me to meet some of the sweetest people (YOU!!) and connect with y'all on an entirely new level! I'm astonished at how much time flies - it's been 8 YEARS since I started my business following high school!
I'm a Fredericksburg Newborn Photographer serving DC and Northern Virginia. I haven’t always been based out of Northern Virginia. I was born in Southern California and moved all the way across the United States! My husband & I just bought our first home in Culpeper, where you can find me with my best friend & husband, Colby, our two kitties, puppy, and our baby boy, Brayden.
I'm a Taylor Swift fanatic (Swiftie), lover of making people laugh, and I ADORE hearing love stories and journeys through motherhood over and over again. So don't get upset if I ask multiple times! It just gets me THAT much more excited for your wedding day or portrait session. :)
I started my business right after my senior year of high school after my now-husband bought me my first camera!

When I was young, I would visit my grandparents and watch the two of them love each other unconditionally. The two of them taught me that love is meant to last and endure, even through hard times. It isn't meant to fade as soon as the wedding day is over.
Now that my grandfather is no longer with us, the photographs on their walls and photo albums are all we have left to remember him by. They're a representation of their enduring commitment to one another. I want every one of my couples to put those silver frames on the wall, on your desks at work, and on your night stands... to remind y'all every day of the commitment you made, your love for one another, and the reason behind your promises.
I love being able to celebrate my couples' love for one another through everlasting photographs. Being able to capture these moments for you is something that is extremely near and dear to my heart. Knowing that you will have these photographs long after your loved ones are gone gives me such a sense of passion for what I do.
Neutrals will never go out of style and you'll learn about my love of neutrals in your session planning guide!
I love all fur babies. We have two kitties at home, Bella & Coal!
The lighting, the food, the atmosphere, the colors, the approaching holidays!
I cannot believe it's still on live television, but I'll watch it 'til the end!
My Favorite Things
I believe in the little moments throughout the day that tell your story. I want you to look back at your wedding photos and remember how you felt. I want you to remember the fleeting moments and your loved ones who journeyed from miles away to be there with you to celebrate. I believe in documenting the little details. Like the little toes that kicked you on the inside for 9 months. Or the little hands that reach up to you every single morning. Or the sweet hugs you give at bed time. These moments are why I love my job and do what I do.
