Hey Gorgeous!

I have been sitting on this blog post for a few weeks now because I can never quite find the right words to sum up the Creative at Heart Conference. Each time I have the privilege to attend or photograph the conference, I leave feeling refreshed, inspired, encouraged and loved in ways that I don’t experience […]

Okay, this is the last Bahamas post…I promise!!! But, when you’re on Paradise Island, you take advantage of every opportunity for a photoshoot. So, when Chelsey mentioned the idea of doing a sweetheart session after the wedding….I jumped on the opportunity!! Now, not only does she have a beautiful wedding day gallery, but she has […]

After quite a few stressful weeks of working hard, traveling, handling constant to-dos + planning some BIG dreams […]

When I was visiting Sydney, Australia with Kat + Lauren, we had SO much fun exploring + traveling together! But, one of my favorite parts of that trip was dressing up as a BRIDE!!! 🙂 After one of the days at the beach, we headed back to our hotel + prepped for an impromptu styled shoot […]

I’m so glad you’re here to see part 2!!! Queenstown was easily my FAVORITE destination on our entire adventure. When I pictured New […]

Build Your Senior Photography Business

I began my business during my junior year of high school, and fell in love with photography while capturing all of my peers and their senior portraits. I built a six-figure photography business on my passion for senior clients - and now I help hundreds of photographers across the globe do the same! 

Free downloads, blog posts, YouTube videos, online courses and memberships... I have it a resource for you!
