I was raised with a camera in my face at every significant (and insignificant) event, so photography is in my blood. I always took very different photographs than the rest of my family. I liked to take pictures of bridges, barns, railroad tracks, dead trees, and abandoned buildings with my little point-and-shoot camera. For Christmas in 2008, my husband gave me my first DSLR camera. It went straight from a minor interest to an obsession. I discovered I'm not the only one who found these things beautiful. This only fueled my fire. Along the way, I discovered lifestyle portraiture. You don't have to have cheesy, overly-posed portraits! There is nothing better than making a living doing something you love. I found that niche in photography.  Ever since the birth of my own child in 2014, my interest in child and family photography has been on overdrive.  I love how natural babies and small children are in photo shoots, before they are old enough to try to pose how they think they are supposed to.


I am available for on-site lifestyle portraits in the greater Chattanooga area (within 50 miles of zip code 37338). If you live outside one of those areas, just ask. I'd love to travel for you!
