WELCOME TO THE BITS AND BOBS OF WHO I AM.

Hey there! I am a photographer based out of Atlanta and Greenville, SC. Both are my home. I am passionate about creating real and raw work, but most importantly RELATIONSHIPS. You are why I do what I do. 

FEAR MOTIVATES ME. THE UNKNOWN CHALLENGES ME. FAITH DRIVES ME.

HERE IS 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.

  • My junior / senior year of highschool I started my own photography business.

  • Fall of 2015 I started my education to study photography full time.

  • Spring of 2018 I moved to Los Angeles to work with Darling Magazine for 6 months. While I was there my work was published for the first time, and it still feels like a dream.

  • January of 2019 I moved to Greenville SC to start a full time photography position creating work for Chick-Fil-A and BMW’s apparel.

  • 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.
