Born in Miami Beach, Florida, as a creative only child I photographed funky wooden figurines that I assembled in my closet and used wrapping paper as their backdrop. I was the girl in elementary school that kept a Le Click camera in her backpack.Then in middle school I graduated to a Canon powershot. My love for black and white photography started with a manual camera and access to a darkroom in high school. Naturally I joined the yearbook staff as a photographer. I continued to study photography in college at the University of Alabama where I minored in Studio Art with a concentration in photography. I decided to take my education one step further at Portfolio Center in Atlanta where I learned how to be a commercial shooter. While in school there, I assisted a variety of photographers and learned to cultivate my own style. I took all this knowledge from years of playing with my passion and decided that shooting weddings and people is where my heart is. Photographing weddings gives me the opportunity to capture unique moments with people and to travel all over the US--my dream! I currently live just outside of Raleigh, North Carolina with my husband, two girls & one ginormous dog.
