PHOTOGRAPHER - MOUNTAIN DWELLER - COFFEE DRINKER

I live in the mountains of North Carolina with my little tribe, and the outdoors is a huge part of who I am and what inspires me. I love wedding tears, personal vows, hiking, traveling and simple living. 

I believe that life is short in the big scheme of things, and that we should spend our time here doing what is in our hearts and connecting with people along the way. This is why I do what I do. The human connection is fascinating to me and is what motivates me personally and as a photographer.

I am drawn to honesty, beauty and emotion- and all of these come in many forms. I strive to tell stories in an organic way that keeps the heart front and center, because a story without heart is no story at all.
