a few of my favorite things


Just like you I have had beautiful, amazing, tough and life altering seasons. I spent the majority of my young life trying to become a nurse but then I realized I was meant for something a little bit different as that dreams came to a halt due to failure. I always knew I was meant to bring joy to the lives of others but little did I know that God had a bigger and better plan than I could have ever imagined. A true life giving line of work that touches my heart in ways I could have never saw coming on my own. I was gifted my first fancy big girl camera in 2008 and I had no clue what I was doing for quite some time. I just knew the second that camera touched my hands my soul ignited with a joy I did not know existed. From that very first picture I took I just knew this was what I was meant to do with my life. I knew I was meant to capture the memories of others through my eyes. To show them what life looks like from the outside in. Photography has always meant so much to me and that reason being is the photos that I lack of my own lost family members and myself as a child. I am a lover of life, cold brew coffee, the color yellow, travel, books and all the worship music you can throw at me.
