hello THere! I'm so glad you're here!
I am an emotion-loving, momma of two who craves fresh air, quiet moments with God, and those beautiful glowing sunsets. I love being outdoors. Nature gives me a sense of peace and reminds me to slow down and listen. I laugh a lot, and cry often, and I believe there is beauty in both.
From the moment I picked up my first film camera in high school, I knew I was in love with something special. So much so that I covered every square inch of my childhood bedroom walls with photographs, which I am sure my parents loved at the time. This love began the dream of capturing more emotion-filled moments, which led to my career in wedding and portrait photography.
My husband, Brandon, and I have two children which I tend to overshare images of pretty frequently. A few years ago, we were on a mission to change the way we live. We purged most of our belongings (including our house and a crazy number of sweaters that proved I have a slight problem), and we set out on journey from coast to coast, exploring many places in-between for an entire year. After a year, we were ready to settle down again, and felt that our time away confirmed even more, the Midwest is our home.
We are passionate about living a meaningful, yet simple life focused on faith, family, and experiences.
Much like the way we live our lives, my photography is simple and focused on your unforgettable moments of love.

There is nothing better than opening God’s word, sinking down in a cozy sweater, sipping a cup of coffee, and journaling what God puts in my heart.
Our Tiny home
We renovated this tiny home and traveled our country in it for an entire year. It holds so much love, joy, and many beautiful memories.
I am a lover of light. Golden sunsets inspire me in every way. Every time I view one, I am reminded just how special the gift of love is, and how blessed we are to give and receive it.
There is something about holding images and albums in your fingers that really bring the memories to life.
Travel ignites my soul. Experiencing the beauty and culture of new places inspires me.
I mean, who doesn’t love the beauty and smell of fresh blooms? They immediately make me happy.
Newborn and Milestone Sessions take place in my studio, located downtown Roanoke, Indiana.
There is only one happiness in life. To love and be loved.
