Born in 1996, I happen to be on the cusp of being a millennial and gen x. I was born in the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia and although I travel far and often, I always find myself back in the mountains. Since I was homeschooled my entire life, I had a lot of extra time at home and thus my artistic selfie obsession was born! I must disclose in the early 2000s selfies were yet to be a “thing”.
After several years of being camera obsessed and bringing it to every birthday party, sleepover, and bbq, my friends and family took notice of my obsession and starting asking me to take photos for them. Gaining experience day by day doing mostly family and senior portraits, I was actually starting to get good at this photography thing and officially opened my photography business in 2013.
When I met my husband in 2015 we had what some might call love at first sight. We got married in 2017 and knew we wanted to grow our family. After trying for 3 years with no luck, multiple surgeries, miscarriages, and 3 rounds of IVF, we were blessed with our sweet boy in 2021.
Although motherhood and photography are my two biggest passions, I have some other hobbies I love to nurture as well. Some of those include owning a women’s clothing boutique, traveling, and I’ve even dabbled in a tattoo apprenticeship.
My story doesn’t stop here but I’m not here to talk your ear off.. I can do that during our session. (Kind of kidding but also not really).
