Greetings! My goal with lifestyle portrait photography is to connect with my subjects in order to capture images that are beautiful, intimate, and priceless. I pride myself in being professional, timely, and in making my clients feel comfortable in front of the camera. I am a photographer for everyone: families, couples, partners, best friends, and soulmates. Come as you are, and we'll work together to make timeless photographs that you will treasure for a lifetime.
My work has been featured in venues across South Carolina and Ohio, in Charleston Magazine, South Carolina Wildlife Magazine, the book: Charleston, South Carolina and the Lowcountry: A Photographic Portrait, on Flip This House, Travel & Leisure, The New York Times, and on the walls of clients all over the world. In addition to photographing families, couples, and events, I continue to work on personal projects and capture landscapes and cityscapes on my travels near and far. I LOVE meeting clients in places that are special to them whether that's in their home, on their favorite beach, or in a cotton field in the country! As a member of the Professional Photographers of South Carolina and Professional Photographers of America, I proudly serve Charleston, SC and beyond!
Check out my work here, and if you think we'd be a good fit, drop me a line!

One of the ways I improve my work and challenge myself is through photography competitions. Since 2015 I have competed in state, regional, and international photographic competitions with the best of the best from around the world.

that spending time with family and pets is what makes me happiest; in making a difference in my community; that the most important thing you can do for your children is to create memories; anything is possible if you are willing to work for it; that digging in the dirt or swimming in a lake will cure almost anything; that my dog is the cutest thing I've ever seen; that travel will change your world; that I will read the Harry Potter series about 50 times (I'm in Ravenclaw!); that the most perfect morning would involve reading home design magazines in bed.
