I was never the one to do anything outside of what I've always known, especially when it came to a career. My life consisted of college and pursuing nursing. It was my safe place and I knew I couldn't fall if I just stayed the course. Pursuing adventures was only a dream for me and a life-goal that seem too far fetched.
During my junior year in college, my fiancé purchased a camera for me to ease the stresses of school. I had no idea how to use it but something about it stuck with me. I imagined leaping out on faith to pursue what I began to love, but change scared me.
That was three years ago. Today I'm documenting love and life – witnessing marriage, families joining together, and legacies. I’m doing what brings joy to my heart, and I thank God every day that I pursued curiosity.
The people I photograph enjoy life’s simple moments, believe in love, boxes filled with old photographs, and value preserving their history. I believe in simple gestures, stolen looks, warm hugs, and the power of a simple photograph bringing families and marriages back together. This isn’t for the trend seekers or Pinterest searchers; it’s for those who want their own story documented and want it captured authentically.
When I’m not documenting weddings, you can easily catch me spending time with my husband who is my best friend and keeps me sane. I call Mississippi home, enjoy traveling, reading crime novels, and binge watching Hulu.
Every day I strive to be my absolute best. Even if it's simply preparing a pot of non-burnt spaghetti that my husband can actually be proud of. Like the spaghetti and other areas in my life, that too is a work in progress.
I love reflecting on the day and setting new goals for myself... even if I don't meet them they're there.
I'm slightly obsessed with apple products and this is one thing I always have on me.
I take my 35mm film camera every where and normally a roll of Portra 400.
My devotionals keep me keep rooted in Christ and my time with Him daily is very important me.
Don't judge me.
Because these moments are what showcase the authenticity in human emotion.
because there's nothing like sharing your legacy years from now to relive it all again with your children and grandchildren.
