my why

When I was 18 and in college I met a man who stole my heart. He was kind and affectionate, handsome and hard working. But he also had a dark side. Something that ended up shaping me to be exactly who I was supposed to be. He had a drinking problem and when he would drink hard alcohol he would turn into a different human...

Denetiah, Elopement

Denetiah Elopements Tiffany + Devan 

Lacey + Jordan  Write up “Be with someone who makes adventures out of late night trips to the grocery store. Be with someone who mindlessly reaches over for your hand while they drive. Be with someone who can’t fall asleep without hearing yoursleepy ‘goodnight. Be with someone who brightens your Monday and motivates you to do […]

Your baby will never look the same as they do in those first few hours. Having your birth photographed is the most vulnerable and powerful thing I get booked for and I HIGHLY encourage it. Even if you choose not to share the images they will be something you will cherish forever. Like a wedding […]



I personally think this is the genre I am most known for. It is something I crave to capture. Since I was young my mom used to lose me in grocery stores because someone the aisle over would have a baby I wanted to cuddle. My sister told me I had to live next door […]

Family, Maternity, Newborn

It does wonders for skin; smoothing and brightening, you get epic mistakes and you learn how to create light leaks and streaks […]



Bring on the chaos. If there is one thing I want you to know about me and family sessions, it’s to not worry about how your children are acting that day. If they are grumpy or sad we can work with it, heck more snuggles for Dad. If they are wild and crazy I will […]



Ahhh my couples. No matter how you identify, I am here to capture the moments. All the lusty, passionate, dreamy, soft, masculine, vulnerable, messy, beautiful moments. Also, I think a lot of people might think they have to get naked when they shoot with me haha, this is not the case. I just encourage the […]
