Connection, raw emotion, and fleeting memories are what I am all about. I am a wife to a wonderful, hardworking husband, and a momma to a beautiful two year old! I am not the girl that wants to just capture a rigid pose in front of a camera. I am the girl that wants to capture real life moments and genuine interactions. The laughter, the love, the tears, and the lives in front of my lens that are real, authentic, and worthy. I am an adventurer, addicted to coffee, tacos, cupcakes and all that life has to offer.

I am a creative, I strive to empower, instill confidence, and to find beauty in every moment I photograph.

I am a wife to a wonderful, hardworking and supportive husband aaron and we just celebrated our 5th anniversary! i am a momma to a beautiful, adventurous and wild two year old girl. i love to travel, it fuels my soul. I LOVE Tacos, they are my main food group. And I really really love puppies, bring them with you, include them in your day. fur babies are family too, am i right?!?

I am passionate, and believe that no dream is impossible to reach. No goal is too far away. No moment in time is too minuscule to be left untold. 

When I was little I lost my aunt to cancer. That moment in life changed me. To this day, my parents still have photos hanging up in their house of the very last time I got to be with my aunt. I want others to have photos they will cherish for the rest of their life.

Featured STORY

Rustyn & Connor share such a beautiful love. These two were full of fun during our adventure engagement session out at the Wichita mountains in lawton, oklahoma. It was a cold and foggy day yet it didn't stop these two for a second. I love their adventurous spirits and the joy they have in one another!
If you are looking for a photographer that shoots outside of the box and doesn't capture traditional poses or images than I am your girl. with every single session i strive to bring out the qualities and emotions that are different for each and every couple.
