...a Texan, a traveler, a dog person without any dogs (yet!), living with my husband in Austin.

When I’m not taking photos, you can find me outside - hiking, at the pool, trying to find the best pizza and margaritas in town – or honestly, on the couch, because who doesn’t love an HBO marathon?

No matter where I am, I always try to have a camera with me. I believe that documenting your life is important. That’s why I specialize in photography that truly shows who you are, in a timeless, classic style that will stand the time of time!

my passion >


hey there!



Aside from photography, my greatest passion is being extremely focused on giving my couples & seniors the best possible experience, from the moment you hit “send” on my contact form, to the first time you open your photo gallery. I'm serious. I get really excited about it! And I love when our relationship goes even beyond that; keeping in touch long after photos have been posted on your Facebook wall and framed on your actual home’s walls! (another reminder to print your photos!!)

And lucky for me, photography and a passion for serving people go hand-in-hand. So, what are you passionate about? I’d love to help you tell that story, document this exciting time in your life, and have a lot of fun doing it!

I'm always ready to get on a plane or drive across the country to see something new. The Caribbean is constantly calling my name, and we're working on visiting every National Park!

I eat a crazy amount of Chick-fil-a on a weekly (sometimes daily) basis. Their app is one of the most visited apps on my phone.
