Hey y'all! Carolina born & bred, I'm a lover of all things southern & a mama to lots of children with fur & feathers! You can see all their sweet faces below! I'm a family lifestyle photographer, an educator, a painter, and an artist! Creating art for clients, whether it's photography or a custom painting or session, is my passion! Kids are my specialty & I love a family who's ready to have a wild & crazy time together!

 When I'm not hosting a workshop, painting, or on an adventure with one of my favorite families you'll find me in my barn with my little menagerie of animals...all minis & short like myself! Be sure to subscribe to the newsletter where I send out MomMonday posts that are educational tips/tricks/insights sent a couple of times a month on Mondays! Newsletter subscribers are also the first to know about any specialty sessions & offerings I’ll have available throughout the year!

Last week I got braces & had a couple of rough days getting used to them. I miss food & my speech is still ridiculous! So I had time to catch up on the Grammys! I hardly ever watch anything live on TV anymore since I can just DVR it & watch later! So the […]

I’ve always been a bookworm, ever since childhood. I can get lost in a book for hours! It’s not unusual for me to read 4-6 books a week in the summertime, floating away in my pool! I can usually start a book at 11a & finish well over half if not all of one by […]
