Photography aside I was born in NOLA and raised in Pearlington, MS. My heart will be forever split between the city and the country, as I feel equally at home in both.
Just after graduating high school, I met the love of my life. After 3 years of dating, I married my amazing husband in 2007 at 20 years old. We learned how to adult with one another (learning? I still don't feel like a legit grown up. LOL), cheered each other on, wiped one another's tears, and learned to love each other as God intended.
Our oldest son, Christian, was born in 2002, followed by our middle son, Kylan, in 2009, and finally our little caboose Carter in 2018. Being their momma is the single greatest blessing in my life.
Shortly after graduation from the University of South Alabama with a Bachelor’s in Biology, I decided that going to medical school (as planned) was not the direction God was leading me. I wanted to be able to be fully present as a mother. After much praying and discussing with my husband, I decided I would further my interest in photography. That interest quickly turned into a deep passion. I fell in love with everything about photography, the light, the emotions, the memories... everything. This only grew after my son was born, and I so desperately tried to grasp onto those fleeting moments that were slipping right through my fingers.
The decision to turn that passion into a career has been one that I have yet to regret. It brings me so much joy to capture the bitty details of a newborn baby, the milestones in your baby’s first year of life, the cheerful moments of childhood, the glow and excitement of a mommy-to-be, and the love and bonds between a family.
Watching your babies grow up is bittersweet, filling your heart with pride and sorrow all at once. As a momma, I've spent my fair share of time wishing I could freeze the clock. That'd be a pretty awesome super power, right?!
Savoring the moments and never dismissing the details is what has made my motherhood journey beautiful, and it's why I'm so passionate about helping you do the same. With our boys being spread out across every stage of childhood, I've experienced it all, and I know how dearly you will treasure the photographs we create together. You'll never regret documenting the little moments and exactly how they feel.
