Photography

I am a lifestyle, on location photographer specializing in natural light, lifestyle photography. As you look through my work you will notice that I treasure moments, not poses. Photographs should spark emotions and speak to you in a way that nothing else does.

PHOTOGRAPHER · MOTHER · STORYTELLER · ARTIST

Details

Priorities: God, Family, Photography in that order. Everything else usually just falls into place.

My daughter, who by the way is taller than me, is an amazing artist. She is so much like me but yet she is so very different. Her smile can light up a room and her joy is contagious.

My son. My handsome, sweet, loving boy has the biggest heart. He loves family game night more than his video games (which is a lot!) and can turn any bad day around with just a hug.

My love, Terry. He and his two boys have taught me so much about how to have fun. I guarantee you haven't lived unless you've taken the golf cart for a "spin" in the field or held on for dear life on the back of a dirt bike going full speed, complete with the occassional wheelie. (The last part I experienced the first time I met his family... what an intoduction!)

My dogs, Bailey and Max, are partners in crime. I’m not sure what they are up to when I’m gone but they look super guilty when I get home.

In middle school and high school I was a photographer for the yearbook and school newspaper. After studying photography while attending UL Lafayette, I came to the conclusion that this was something I wanted to do for the rest of my life. 

I shoot Nikon and prefer fixed lenses.

Things I Love (in no particular order)

· Coffee Shops

· Hanging out with Terry in his shop

· Motocross

· My favorite blue jeans.

· Cold weather and chilly nights.

· Swinging on the porch or sleeping in a hammock

· Music {Kaleo, The Record Company, Maren Morris}

· Sunrises and Sunsets over the Atchafalaya Basin

· Community coffee brewing in the morning (it reminds me of my Daddy)

· Darkrooms – the quiet, the smell, the peaceful darkness

· Pizza (this should be closer to the top of the list)

· The mountains

Oh how I love thee…
