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.

2016 - 2019 Merited Images from the the International Photographic Competition

I believe......

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.
