Jess: Class of 2018!

When I moved to St. Louis in October, I only knew medical students, which really isn’t a great setup for either a social or professional life. Thankfully, I connected with Jess and her parents through a family member, and we set up my first official senior portrait session in Forest Park! As I told Jess,Continue reading “Jess: Class of 2018!”

Girl with a Guitar

Somehow, I ended up the only non-musically-talented sibling in my family, but thankfully, my sisters are especially good at allowing me to photograph them in their element. Even better, sometimes their element looks like strumming a guitar at dusk and walking down a country road, singing to cattle as the sun fades. I love shootingContinue reading “Girl with a Guitar”

Lacey & Alex: Engaged!

My best friend is marrying the love of her life three months from TODAY! I’m so glad I got to hang out with Lacey and Alex for a few pictures before I move to St. Louis, and I’m so glad they found this great spot! Almost all of these pictures were taken in the sameContinue reading “Lacey & Alex: Engaged!”

Lacey in Vondelpark

Public parks are among my favorite things. Plants and green spaces right in the middle of urban sprawl? Yes please. The Vondelpark in Amsterdam is MASSIVE: 120 acres of grass, water features, plants, and playgrounds, planted in an already beautiful capital city. Lacey and I got to hang out there for an afternoon, and weContinue reading “Lacey in Vondelpark”

Densmore Family

The Densmore family was the first family I photographed in the fall, and I got to hang out with them again in May! We spent a morning at the North Carolina Museum of Life and Science, which I was thrilled to do because who doesn’t love a good butterfly house? I love taking family picturesContinue reading “Densmore Family”

Alex: Class of 2017

Alex spent four years pouring his life and time into two things: football and academics. He is a student-athlete, a future doctor, and an incredible, brilliant young man. I’m so glad he agreed to wake up for a very early morning photoshoot with me to celebrate our graduation from Duke in May.

An Adventure in Paris!

My best friend and I spent a couple weeks traveling in Europe to celebrate our graduation in May, and we spent three days in Paris! It was her first visit to one of my favorite cities, and we had a blast cramming all of Paris into less than 72 hours. I still can’t believe howContinue reading “An Adventure in Paris!”

Dredla family

As a Duke grad, I cringed when I got the text requesting to do a family shoot on UNC’s campus. I also cringed when I realized that Chapel Hill actually is beautiful, and I had a wonderful evening getting to know the Dredla family! My favorite moment of the shoot was when a bride andContinue reading “Dredla family”
