and I specialize in newborn photography for those who never want to forget this sweet and fleeting stage.
Most days, you will find me with my hair pulled back, working a full time job, running after my kids, photographing newborns and babies, editing...with a black coffee (or cold brew!) within arm's reach.
If you would have ever asked me if I was a creative person or an artist I would have laughed at you. I loved math class in high school. I double-majored in business management and information technology management in college, and my only goal in life was to find a successful desk job working 8+ hours a day.
I never planned on being a photographer. I didn't pick up my camera to do something easier. I picked up my camera to do something I love. To do something that I could get lost in. I realized after the loss of my father, that life is simply too short to not love what you’re doing every single day. My goal now? To find joy and gratitude in my day-to-day moments.
Photography unleashed an artist and an entrepreneur that had always been inside me. I now operate a photography business and a website design business and I owe it all to a lot of self-development, the best support system a girl could ask for and an abundance of faith in God.
I believe that with an incredible amount of faith & hustle, anything is possible.

Things I Love
Family movie night! Especially when I get to pick the movie…
Cheeseburgers. Never met one I didn't like.
Traveling with family and seeing the world through my kids’ eyes.
My chosen “uniform.” Birkenstocks, jeans, and a T-shirt.
My rock. We grew up 15 minutes from each other but didn’t meet until our early twenties. We were engaged a short 6 months later and have been together ever since. We love traveling…among our favorite trips? Hawaii, Alaska, Yellowstone, and Disney World!
My beautiful and independent daughter. Already wise beyond her years and challenges me to be better on a daily basis. She loves figure skating and movie night and her favorite TV show is the Kids Baking Championship on Food Network.
My son. He's named after his grandfathers (William Wayne & Ronald Martin). He is one of the sweetest and funniest kids ever…even though his personality occasionally reminds me of The Hulk. He has an appetite like his mom and is currently obsessed with Battlefront 2, super hero movies, hockey & baseball.
