Welcome to my life and story.
I’m a born and raised Georgia Peach who has always longed to explore the world and capture beauty in the perfectly imperfect. I’ve always been a dreamer, a traveler, and a storyteller since I was young. I feel alive trying new things and seeing new places.
Thinking back, my passion for photography blew up after a trip to California in 2016 with my sister, where I truly believe my soul came alive. I’ve never seen nature in the way I discovered it there. That is where my love for photographing people in nature came alive in a crazy amazing way.
There has been tremendous growth from that place into something even more beautiful when in 2019 I moved to Denver, Colorado. I was a full time nanny from 2015 - 2021 while also growing my photography business and now my passion is taking the reins.
Nature inspires me.
People inspire me.
Stories inspire me.
Why not combine them?
a little about me.
I have 7 siblings.
I am an all around mediator and peacemaker for life (Enneagram 9 here!)
I am a beach AND mountains person, not either or.
When I was younger I learned to ride a unicycle and took dance trapeze classes.
My drink of choice is Gin + Tonic or a French 75. I’m a gin girl, what can I say?
Favorite coffee is a tie between a traditional cappuccino or a well-crafted Ethiopian Pour over. Can you tell I'm also a barista in my spare time?
I love to get in the kitchen and bake for others (rarely for myself.)
I lived in Denver, Colorado for a year and a half before moving back to my home state of GA in 2021.
Lover of nature & the great outdoors!
