Welcome to the Bits and Bobs of who i am



Hey there! I am a photographer based out of Atlanta and Arkansas. Both are my home. I dwell in the southeast during the summer, and the midwest during the fall. I am passionate about creating real and raw work, but most importantly RELATIONSHIPS. You are why I do what I do. 


Here's What My Journey Looks Like Thus Far.


  • I fell in love with photography at the age of 15.
  •  My grandfather was a photographer, and I am honored to carry out part of his life through my craft. 
  • I shoot both digitally AND with film. I can't decide which I like more. 


  • You can never do anything by half. That is a motto that my work has adopted. I pour my soul into my work. Hours of preplanning and researching and thinking are involved. Portraying life with abstract vulnerability, sparks adrenaline within me. That feeling cannot be compared to anything else.
  • PHOTOGRAPHY IS ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS! This is something that is foundational to my work. I want to get to know you through this process, so that I know how to best capture who you are. You are in fact, the star. 
  • I am so in love with Jesus. My prayer is that what I DO would reflect who HE IS. My faith drives my work.  
  • I laugh A LOT.  
  • Bringing YOU JOY is MY JOY. 

One of my goals is to be an open and vulnerable human. Being a photographer helps me do just that. 

Want to Have a Heart to Heart?

Let's grab some food or tea, and chat about your life and your goals. I would love nothing more than to listen, and be your person for a few hours. What your heart feels is important.

I adore my city

Getting to know the place where I was born has been an absolute pleasure. I might not be the most typical city girl, but I sure can't get enough.

Currently, I am living in Los Angeles California interning with Darling Media for the next six months! I am so excited to see where this opportunity goes. I spend my days answering emails, taking behind the scenes photos, and learning everything I can about this business. Honestly, my love for the art is only growing. ! !
