It's me, Hi


I'm a self-taught wedding and lifestyle photographer in Birmingham, Alabama. I started my photography business in 2016 as a little side hustle and didn't really know the possibility of where it could take me. Since then, I've had the opportunity to travel all over the United States and experience so many sweet moments. It really is the best.


I've been married to my hubby Austin since 2014. We have two sweet babies, Dallas & Charlie. I have a mad love for pizza, and 70's and 80's music. I love to travel, fun fact- my first time on a airplane was for our honeymoon, I was 22. I'm always working on a house project, it's another small thing that brings me joy. Whether it's changing the paint on the wall, or adding a new light fixture. I love it.


Favorite Color: Olive Green

Favorite Food: Buffalo Chicken Pizza

Favorite Snack: Pop Corners Sweet & Salty Kettle Corn

Favorite part of a wedding day: First Looks, and last dance (let's be real, everything)

Favorite Flavor of Ice-cream: Chocolate

Describe your perfect day: Waking up and getting a morning run in, followed by a beach day with the family

and then for dinner we grab a pizza and have a picnic on the beach. Simple but perfect.

Coffee or Tea? White Chocolate Mocha please! ( Hot or Iced)

Photography has always held a special place in my heart. I remember as a little girl my grandfather owning a Canon sure shot and carrying it around everywhere we went. That precious man loved taking pictures of anything. Seriously, anything. From the fishing trips we took, to the family reunions, and my most favorite- the candid Christmas mornings.


Because of him, I have so many documented memories that I will cherish forever, and I'm grateful. He's the reason my love for photography is so deep.


I want to deliver a gallery that you feel. Filled with your favorite people, and special moments in between.
