get to know
I used to be you! I have owned both a Catering Company and a Wedding Planning Firm. I relate to the struggle of trying to keep up with the demands and pace of modern marketing. I have felt what it's like to burn the candle at both ends and still be attracting the wrong kind of clients. I know what it's like to wake up at 4am to put bread in the oven, push out 500 raviolis, get home at midnight only to do it all over again the next day and all while raising three kids on my own! I get it, and I admire what you do! I am passionate about seeing you succeed because I have walked in your shoes. My shift into brand photography came after over a decade of experience in the culinary and event planning industries, when I finally found the courage to say out loud what my dream really was. Sounds silly but I think because it is a creative field, I was very intimated by put myself out there in such a subjective way.
I've experienced the personal battle of defining your brand, aligning your messaging, and communicating your value. Combining my business background and creative vision, I use photography to breathe life into your brand. I do this because I truly want to see you succeed. I follow my clients' journeys and help them make a plan to implement their imagery. I want you to get results, or my work means nothing. I want to see you get quality return on your investment in your brand.

WHO IS MY WHY?
Craig and the kids! I have three, Katelyn 24, Jonathan 22 and Christopher 20. Our home base is in Charlotte, North Carolina but most of my days are spent either working with clients, having virtual "date-nights" with my hubby who is working abroad or hanging out with our 4-year-old puppy, Lily!
