Thank you so much for visiting my website! I wanted to give you a little more info about me and my work so we can become better acquainted...


Whenever someone asks me what type of photography I do I always just say "people!" Photographing real people, real emotions, real moments is what I love best. While I love and always look for beautiful lighting and backdrops, it's really the people that make the pictures. That's why I always want to make sure that whoever I am photographing is just relaxed and having fun!  And yes, as a photographer, part of my job is to make sure you look your best in the photos! So don't worry if you have never done a photo shoot before or feel awkward in front of a camera.  I will pose you and give you some fun and silly prompts that always lead to real smiles and laughter, a recipe for great photos!

To me, Charleston is one of the most charming cities. It's a photographer's dream! Whether people want pictures on the beach, under the Spanish moss, or downtown, we have it all. There is no shortage of beautiful places and backdrops to choose from. It's the best!


Aside from photography my other passion is music. My first job out of high school was teaching piano. What I thought was just going to be a summer job ended up turning into an 8 year profession! I'm so thankful that both of my passions have been able to turn into careers for me. I have always loved what I do for work and I hope that never changes.

Ok, so that is enough about me. Please don't hesitate to get in touch so we can chat about you. I hope to hear from you soon, thanks! 





These are a few of my favorite things...

3. Planning! Whether it's a small dinner party, our next vacation, or another house project, planning is what I do! 

1. Costco! Seriously, it's my favorite place to go. I could talk about it for hours so I won't even start.

2. Home design shows! From Fixer Upper to Flip or Flop, I love them all. Then I take the designs I see on TV and try to make them a reality with the help of my very talented (and patient!) husband, Brian.
