I’m a photographer based in Nashville, Tennessee. I love photographing growing families for parents who value timeless, natural, and heartfelt images. I specialize in a baby lead approach to Newborn Photography. I believe every milestone deserves to be captured, from Maternity to your baby’s first birthday, to your child’s first missing tooth - you and your children will treasure each memory you allow me to capture.

My studio is located just south of town in Franklin, Tennessee. I’m married to a kind, smart, handsome man named Mark who encouraged me follow this dream and leave my full time teaching job and see how far my photography “side job” could go — and boy has it surpassed my wildest dreams!

I believe that memories matter and that photographs of your family during all its different stages will be some of the best legacy items you could give your children. I believe its important for YOU to be in photos with your children. The love shared between a parent and child needs to be captured. I believe displaying photographs in your home of your child will boost their self esteem and help to instill a confidence that they belong.
