Photographer // Creative // Boymom
I'm a boy mom, military wife (USMC), family documentarian and portrait photographer serving the greater Charleston area. I’ve lived here for over 10 years, and while I adore the area, I am going to admit to you now, my daily life more closely resembles Swamp Life than Southern Charm.
I’ve been a photographer for about seven years. I started my business (licensed & insured) in 2017. I use both natural and artificial light, but I am not studio-based. If you're interested in professional associations, I’m a member of Professional Photographers of America, a Click Pro Master at Click & Co., and a contributor to Offset stock imagery. I'm happy to tell you about any of them.
Most recently, I was the Best in Category winner in Click Magazine's 2020 Voice Collection . In 2021, I was a finalist in the Eye Contact category .
Each year I try to complete a 365 project, where I take a photo a day for one year. If you'd like to get a glimpse into my personal life & photography, this is the best way to do it!
That's me on the left.
My mom was a terrific documentarian for our family. My sisters and I have albums full of images of our childhood. That is one of the biggest gifts I can think of to give someone. Those photos help me reflect, jog memories, and honestly? They're just fun.
01 - I shoot Sony and Fujifilm and use the Profoto A1x for off camera lighting.
02 - I majored in Music at Illinois State University. Later, I taught music to students with emotional & developmental disabilities.
03 - I'm an Enneagram 9. Regarding my business, this is why I have a relaxed, patient vibe. I want all my clients to walk away feeling like they've had a good time.
04 - I am a Ravenclaw according to Pottermore's test results. I love Harry Potter.
05 - We have a rescue dog named Fawn. She is a lovable garbage eater.
