My story starts different than most. I didn't start photography when I got married or when I had kids. In fact, I was a photographer long before I became a wife or a mother.
I fell in love with photography as a teenager, spending my days taking photos of my friends and our adventures so that I could hold onto them just a little bit longer. Walking into Ritz Camera to pick up that freshly developed roll of film was a feeling I'll never forget.
That's the feeling I hope to give to you as I take the biggest moments of your life and return them to you in a beautiful, artistic way that you can look back on for years to come. I hope that you will open your gallery with the same excitement that I did when I anxiously opened that packet of double 4x6 prints.
At 18 years old I started my first job as a portrait photographer.
Taxes, licenses, oh my! In February I officially started my own business.
I celebrated the birth of my first baby and opened my first studio!
Proudly voted Showiteer Of The Year award at the United conference.

Never tell me the odds.

A new york girl livin' life in the southern world.
After high school I found a job at a retail portrait chain in the mall. I moved up the retail ladder fairly quickly and over the course of the next seven years I managed studios in New York, Myrtle Beach, and San Diego. In 2008, I made the decision to move back to Myrtle Beach and start my own business. I opened my first portrait studio in 2012 (the same year that I had my first daughter!) and then moved to a much larger space in The Market Common in late 2013.
Life changed once again in the fall of 2021 as my business moved forward on a new solo journey, opening an even larger portrait studio in Murrells Inlet.
I have two beautiful and wildly independent daughters, an amazing husband that I absolutely adore and a sweet pup that makes our home complete.
