I was honored when Rachael called to ask about hiring me to be her wedding photographer because, well, she’s family! As a wedding photographer, I’m there for many of the most intimate moments of the wedding day. It was special to share those moments with the people I love. Leading up to their wedding, Rachael and Casey were sweetly giddy about getting married, a covenant they approached with joy and reverence. Their demeanor was filled with elation, which I hope shows through in these photos from beginning to end ..read more

When I first saw Dami on his wedding day and asked how he was feeling, he said, “I’m feeling alive!” What a great description of all the many feelings and expectations of a wedding day bundled into a single phrase! Dami and Abby expressed how they viewed one another as an expression of God’s love in their lives, and I’m pretty sure almost everyone in the room needed a tissue (I defiinitely did). It was an honor to capture the day Dami and Abby’s family was formed. The privilege is never lost on me ..read more

The word that comes to mind when I think of Rachael and Casey’s engagement session is “giddy”! These two were definitely feeling the sweet anticipation of their wedding (and really, just finally becoming husband and wife!), and I’m so glad I was there to preserve these moments for them. This session was extra special because Rachael is family! It’s always an honor to when friends and family trust me to thoughtfully document their milestones. The Mississippi coast was a beautiful backdrop on a warm day ..read more

I’ve admired Larissa and Parker from our first meeting after they shared with me how they both came to trust in Christ and described how decisions about their relationship + marriage are made in light of a desire to honor the Lord. I light up when I get to talk about what a gift God’s design for marriage is, and when a couple lights up about it just as much as I do, I think that can’t help but show through my lens. I pray this sweet couple will be a light to the world through their marriage ..read more

A lot could be said of 2020, but I’d like to offer a few good things, favorite things even, that I enjoyed last year. I hope there’s a new gem in this list for you! Here they are in no particular order… Relatable Podcast by Allie Beth Stuckey Allie has a way of cutting through the “fluff” of current events to offer the perspective of a Christian woman who cares deeply about theology and politics. Her dry sense of humor also makes me laugh! Natalie Bennett YouTube Channel This is the YouTube channel I’ve watched the most consistently over the past few years. I originally found her from a newbo ..read more

Work from Home Parenting: How to Work from Home with a Baby

My Best Tips for Working from Home with a Baby (what worked for me) Shortly after our little one came home from the hospital after a long NICU journey, I started on the humbling path of figuring out how to work from home with a baby and be a “work from home mom”. Back then, it was hard to find blog posts about how to do this. “Work from home parenting” wasn’t a big search term on Google, but now with so much of the workforce self-isolating and temporarily operating from home, information is everywhere! Caring for a baby and working from home at the same time is a lot, so if you’re here because ..read more

The Best Online Courses for Photographers and Creative Entrepreneurs

Online courses can be an incredible tool...or a crutch that holds you back. They give you the opportunity to learn from experts and save time from Googling at 1am, but it’s also tempting to jump from course to course without pausing to implement what you’ve learned (guilty!). I’d forgotten how many courses I’d taken until I sat down to write this post. Here, I’m sharing my favorites.  I didn’t come up with a formal list of questions to ask myself every time I considered buying a course, but I typically thought through versions of these questions each time. I hope this helps you the next ..read more
