About the Photographer
I would love to chat over coffee at some quiet little shop around town and tell you about why I love doing what I do. Between now and then, I will tell you a few things. I am a mother of three, wife, artist and lover of Christ. I am real and I love it when others are too. I am all in with whatever I dedicate myself to and I never do anything half way. Always looking to make someone laugh, even at my own expense. I home-school my children and some days it's hard. My life has thrown me a lot of curve balls but I made lemonade, self-worth is a big deal to me, I love to encourage others, coffee is my favorite thing, family is pretty good too. Being a mother is my greatest joy, home decor gets me into trouble, the beach is my place of solitude. Sometimes I talk too much but never before 10 a.m., I am a night-owl, I dance when no one is watching, I will never tire of newborn babies, and showing women their true beauty is what I do. A daughter of the King is who I am.

About My style

I am passionate about relationships and connection. I want to capture emotion in my imagery and tell your story with posing. I love light, so I gravitate toward lovely dream-like portraits while focusing in on the important details. I enjoy mixing in a journalistic lifestyle feel with some beautiful guided posing. Beautiful Soul Portraits is about allowing your beauty and personality slip through while offering subtle positioning in body language in order to create a one-of-a-kind work of art. I use a lot of earthy elements and colors in combination with natural light so that each portrait is a true representation of who you are. My goal is for you to have an incredible experience creating photographs of you and/or your loved ones that will bring you joy for a lifetime.
