Wife, mama to 6 (yes, 6!), homeschool teacher, photographer, Coast Guard wife, believer, encourager, and sunset chaser. I believe that beauty is everywhere and it is worth capturing. We are blessed to have lived in many places as a military family, and we currently call Atlantic Beach, North Carolina home.
I love to encourage people and throughout your session, you will hear me constantly behind the camera encouraging you. I believe that pictures capture a moment in time that's worth remembering for years to come.
I've found that life is worth celebrating, memories are worth making, and when beauty happens all around us, it's worth taking a moment to capture.
For me, it started on a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Hawaii. While soaking in the bright colors of a beach sunset and admiring the crystal blue waters of the Pacific, I knew the moment was worth capturing, but my photos fell so flat in comparison. So, I set out to learn, practice, and master my DSLR to do the views and my memories justice.
And then I had kids and Mama Papparazzi came out. My desire to brilliantly capture every single moment of my daughter's life came alive just as it did on that Hawaiian beach. And so began a journey of not just making memories, but finding ways to cherish them and enjoy them for years to come.
Now, looking back my kiddos' baby pictures and images from our early married life, I am reminded of God's incredible gifts. The images remind me of God's goodness, and they tell stories of his faithfulness.
I want to do the same for other people. That precious kid belly laughing as their daddy chases them, the eyes of a man in love as he looks at his best friend, and the simple yet sincere smile of a couple who has cherished many years together. I love a newborn's tiny features, the smile of a senior on the verge of being an adult, and families making memories at the best family reunion ever. These perfectly, imperfect moments all have stories to tell, and I want to capture them for you.
Life with this crew of mine is crazy, loud, and messy, but they are God's biggest gifts to me and remind me of His perfect plan every single day.
