more about me

I live with my husband John and our Son Carson in small town Gatesville, Texas. Texas may be the place I grew up and live but traveling has my heart. I love waking up in a new place and exploring everything it has to offer. I will drive for hours down the road with no destination. That probably sounds crazy but it's how I've found amazing coffee shops and unforgettable hiking trails. 

When I'm not playing Assassins Creed or Sims I'm watching Ghost Adventures or a good Netflix Documentary. My husband and I will drink coffee all day long. We are those people, although it can keep us up we just just enjoy it that much. 

Lastly I love people and I want to know all of my clients on a personal level. Let's go get coffee or dinner and talk about what makes you a couple and how you met! Tell me all of the things!

"There is nothing worse than a sharp image of a fuzzy concept." - Ansel Adams 

Family is what drives me to be successful in this business. Without the love and support of my husband I don't know if I would even be doing photography. He and my family have always encouraged me to be a photographer even when I didn't think it was possible. 

Each morning I wake up with my son, I think of how precious each stage of his life is and how important it is to me to capture those moment as they are. I don't want to forget them, and I'll always have them to look back on when he is older. 

Family

Every time I'm in a new area of the world, I enjoy taking it all in. I want to do everything that spot has to offer. Before I visit a new place I see what State or National park is closest and add it to my list. Hiking and being in nature fills my soul and without it traveling would be pointless.

I believe that each part of the physical earth tells a story and I am leaving a part of myself behind when I visit. Hiking a mountain with tall trees or swimming in a clear lake with a beautiful waterfall bring a sense of wonder and I am utterly addicted to it. I am 100% a wanderlust. 

Traveling

I am a Christ Follower. A part of me feels like this should have been first on my list but it's a part of everything I love, it's the reason I love. Going through life alone was really hard for a time. I had my family and friends but that didn't fill me the way I needed. 

When I became more faith driven I noticed a change in heart and mind and I haven't looked back. I believe in serving others and loving unconditionally because He first loved me. It's the basis of my life and I never skip a beat sharing my testimony.
