I'm a Texas girl with a love for photography. Vanilla lattes are my drink of choice and I believe life should be filled with adventures. I love sharing my work, travels, and life with you through my blog. I am known for my energetic and outgoing personality, my obsession with the color pink, all things breakfast (esp. avocado toast), my love of travel, and my guilty pleasure - One Tree Hill, Grey's Anatomy, and The Office reruns.

Welcome TO THE

I had to honor of photographing Natt and Patricia’s maternity session. These two have been friends of my boyfriend for quite some time. So, therefore, also friends of mine.

Who wouldn’t want photographs to look at when they need that extra kick-in-the-pants of you’re amazing, worthy, and you’ve got this! Or if anything else, have amazing […]

Austin and Stevie welcomed the cutest baby boy earlier this year. His name is Liam and he is such a smiley little guy. The love they have for this 5-month old bundle of joy was so evident throughout our entire experience together. Austin and Stevie’s faces would light up just holding Liam in their arms […]

Random fact: I actually photographed Morgan when she finished […]
