why i love it

A little bit about my background and how I got here

I've always had a camera in hand, but I started professional photography in 2014. While wrapping up my MBA at The University of Alabama, I took graduation photos on the side to help pay for tuition. I worked with 57 graduating seniors that semester, and it was an absolute joy to be able to create photos that celebrate their biggest accomplishments yet.

Nowadays, I work closely with coaches, authors, speakers, & entrepreneurs to create photos and videos that elevate your brand to the next level!

When we plan your photoshoot, we plan it with intention. My background in business and advertising help me see your business & message through my MBA lens. Yes, we'll create beautiful photos, but we'll also make sure they radiate confidence, support your marketing strategy, and attract your dream clients. Oh, and we have a HECK of a lot of fun!
