My Blistex Silk & Shine Chapstick & a Hair Tye… my hair is ALMOST always in a ponytail…
My Sunglasses in my favorite bright pink Kate Spade pocketbook

The pocketbook holds all the other must have things, like lotion, hand sanitizer, & phone!
…My favorite? Any Netflix original series, honestly my current faves are Locke & Key & Downton Abby.
Obviously my hubby, pup and camera gear are all must haves too….

I operate my home office, studio & business out of Bridgewater, Virginia. Just a few miles from where I grew up in Dayton, VA. I love to capture classic, bright and true to life real moments for my clients. I am always up for a good sunset and have deemed myself a sun chaser (along with my mom) no matter where we are…always looking for the best light and the perfect sunset to enjoy!
I share a home with my husband and fur-baby Marlin! We got married in 2014 at a venue in Lexington, Va. Our fur-baby Marlin joined us in December of 2020 and has kept us on our toes ever since!
