"She has this way of making each photograph so intimate, that it really tugs at your heart. How she can capture each moment as if nobody else is watching, is truly special. It's those once in a lifetime photographs that you can look back on and remember every single element, that makes her eye for detail so desired in a photographer."
I've always had an insatiable desire to see and experience beauty. Over the years, photography has given me a voice to communicate certain truths about beauty that can't be put into words, and I love using this voice to strengthen, comfort, and encourage others.
As a lifestyle photographer, I approach every shoot as both a challenge and a grace.
A challenge in the sense that, to do my work well, I must understand the expectations of my clients and execute to their wishes within a specified boundary of time. This requires preparation, emotional intelligence, and sensitivity to my surroundings, as well as a hyper-vigilance and creativity to capture that exact moment when tension melts into authenticity.
Each shoot also brings the unmerited favor of a client's trust. Whether it's the dressing room of the bride, the recovery room of a newborn, or the sacred ground of a first Christmas in a new home, I am always honored by the gracious invitation to experience and share such intimate moments with my clients.
I'm thankful to call Charlottesville my home, so when I'm not working, you can find me touring wineries, exploring nature with my southern gentleman, and gushing over my adorable niece and nephew. If you're in Charlottesville and would like to connect for a drink, please don't hesitate to reach out!
I look forward to working with you!
