A bit about me:

I love adventure, exploring nature, and journeys of all kinds. I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Photography from Ohio State University and am working towards a Master in Art and Visual Media (expected graduation in 2024). I reside in Logan, Ohio, with my husband and two adorable boys. I am an avid reader and enjoy lo-fi music, new food experiences, sci-fi/fantasy tv, and traveling with my family.


relaxed, natural, and fun

my approach

I grew up in the Hocking Hills and chased any outdoor adventure that didn't include extreme heights or confined spaces. I had my nose in a book when I wasn't outdoors, reading about epic journeys and studying photo books with portraits taken around the world. This love of adventure portraiture led me to study Anthropology at The Ohio State University. But within the first year, I switched my major to Fine Art Photography and found my bliss. After graduation, I worked several photo-related jobs, including photojournalist and museum exhibition assistant.

When my son, Huxley, was born, I decided to make my part time photography business full-time so that I could work around his fussy baby schedule. Immediately, the Universe showered me with wedding and portrait opportunities, and I realized I had made the right decision. Since that leap, I have continued to grow and evolve in my approach and the presentation of the images. But my commitment to excellent client experience has always remained strong. I plan to travel more in the next few years, photograph some new locations, and meet lovely new people.
