     Hello!

I'm glad you're here. This little business was started in 2010, and from the beginning, my whole focus has been, and always will be, on creating beautiful photography for my clients. I never cared much for designing fancy websites and the technical stuff, and this website is a testament to that fact. I prefer to spend more time on improving my craft - to better capture you in your moment. To me, that's time well-spent.

It wouldn't be fair if I didn't introduce my devilishly handsome partner in business and in life, even if he rarely makes an appearance. It's true that I am the sole creative force behind the business, but Mike is the MAN behind the curtain making it all happen smoothly. God love him! I'm a quiet Michigan girl who married a sarcastic North Florida boy, and I've planted my Northern roots here in the South. After meeting & marrying in St. Petersburg, Florida, we moved with our two little girls to the great state of Tennessee, and couldn't be happier for it. We have absolutely fallen in love with this state, and I feel blessed to be a Knoxville Wedding Photographer.

From the beginning, my approach to photography has never been to just 'make a pretty picture', but rather to harness glorious light, tie it to a beautiful, fleeting moment, and create little time capsules for my clients. I want to move something in you when you look at your images... I want to help you see how beautiful your life is- how beautiful YOU are. I sincerely respect the power in all styles of photography, but my passion isn't found in cute Pinterest posing, in the perfect outfit, or the 'Say Cheese' smile - but rather in documenting the raw, natural beauty that sometimes reveals itself *only* in candor. That is what makes me feel alive. 

I'm excited to meet you!
