Behind the Lens

ABOUT US

I'm a wife and momma to two beautiful boys and I always have a coffee (heavy on the cream and sugar) in my hand.

Hopeless romantic (watch Jane the Virgin and you get me),  addicted to coffee and sweets, and lover of soft acoustic music.

I'm so glad you're here! While I spend so much of my time loving on my sweet couples, there's so much more about me that you should know.

First things first, I'm a wife to my high school sweetheart and a momma to two beautiful little boys. I try not to talk about them TOO much, but they're too cute not to bring up in conversations.

I'm a lover of chicken minis and cookies and cream milkshakes... and basically all the sweets. I watch the same four shows on repeat: Friends, Gilmore Girls, Greys Anatomy, and Jane the Virgin. Go watch them all so we can chat about them! Read on to find out a few more things about me!

Hi, friend!

Nothing and I mean    N O T H I N G    is better than a made bed with clean sheets.

These guys. They're as sweet as they are handsome and they each have their own way of loving on me and making a bad day great again.

I can snack all. day. long. Give me all of the Reese's, Swedish Fish, and BBQ Chips! Or maybe don't... because I'll eat them all.

Charleston has my heart forever. One of my bucket list items is to photograph a Charleston wedding. I'm also dying to visit Magnolia in Waco, Texas!

The friendships. I love getting to know my couples and keeping in touch after their wedding. True story: I had two KOP couples do my Fall Mini Sessions this year and they were both announcing they were pregnant with baby #2 that week! It's so fun to photograph them with their babies!

OUR STORY

I was a cashier and he was my bagger, but by the end of the summer, he was my best friend. I still remember staring at him from across the store and thinking how cute his curly hair and button nose were. Then, he played the guitar for me for the first time and I was his. I'm still taken back to that moment every time he plays.

That first year was spent walking each other to class and then working together after school. And on our days off, he would take me on the four wheeler, out fishing, or to one of his huge family's events It's still crazy to think that ten years ago, I had just met my future husband and father of my children.

OUR STORY

After high school, Cole joined the Marine Corps while I went to our local community college so that I could be home any chance he got to come home. On our third dating anniversary, Cole proposed on the beach and we did our wedding planning over the next year living four hours apart.

On our four year anniversary, and after living four hours away for three years, we were finally MARRIED! It was the best day!

OUR STORY

After our wedding, we went on our honeymoon to Key West and kicked off the start of our marriage in the BEST way. After that, we finally got to move in together and spent that first year on the NC coast.

in 2016, we moved back to our hometown and started building our first house with our two pups, Harley and Dixie. In June of 2017, we moved into our first house and a few weeks later, found out we were pregnant with our baby boy, Kyle.

OUR STORY

In March of 2018, we had the best day yet - the day our first baby was born. Watching him learn and grow over the past three years has definitely been the highlight of my life. It's also so fun every time someone new sees him and tells us how much he looks like me! I love having my own little twin!

Likewise, watching Cole become the BEST Da-Da to our boys has been absolutely incredible. His fun and playfulness and his patience with what was once two-under-two blows me away every single day.

OUR STORY

When Kyle was one year old, we started noticing some delays and started talking to his pediatrician about it. At 15 months, he had his first evaluation where they let us know that he was significantly delayed. He started speech and occupational therapy two times a week after that.

We also started trying for baby #2 when Kyle turned one year old and got pregnant on the first try this time! I was actually just three weeks pregnant with Baby Luke in this photo!

OUR STORY

In January of 2020, we had our next best day when our youngest baby, Luke was born. He was the brightest light in such a hard year and we know God gave him to us at the most perfect time.

He is his daddy's twin and loves trying to play with big brother and copies his every move.

Watching Kyle become a big brother has been the sweetest thing, even if he doesn't always understand the things baby brother does.

OUR STORY

A few months after Luke was born, Kyle was officially diagnosed with Autism. Because of his delays, we expected the diagnosis, but didn't quite expect the severity of it. Autism Spectrum Disorder is diagnosed on a scale of 1-3, and Kyle was diagnosed as a 3 which is more severe.

His diagnosis affects our daily lives in a pretty big way, which is what makes me even more thankful to have such a flexible job which gives me the opportunity to be with him so much of the week. In March of 2021, right after his third birthday, Kyle started Pre-School in order to help him catch up to other kids his age and let him socialize more. He loves going to school and is really thriving with all of his new friends! We are so thankful for all of his teachers and therapists!

OUR STORY

We sold our house in August of 2020 and are currently building our forever home right across the street from two of Cole's cousins who we spend most of our time with! Our new house will be on 10 acres of land where we easily picture weekly dinners with our best friends out on the porch, summer days spent playing in the creek with the boys, and watching them grow into sweet young men.

With our oldest in Pre-school and our youngest home with me, life can be a little chaotic, but our little family is what fuels me to be better every single day. I can't thank God enough for this wonderful little family of mine!

about you

Does this sound like you? Inquire with me.

My clients are up for anything and love a good adventure - a trip to the beach for photos? Yes! 

While we may be total homebodies most of the time, it's so fun to do something new and exciting for a photo session. I don't have favorite clients, but if I did, it would probably include an adventure - like going to the beach, the mountains, or maybe even Charleston?
