Hello and welcome. I'm a lifestyle/editorial photographer now based Grand Forks, North Dakota of all places. After starting my business in Charlotte, NC and bouncing around the Southeast, we are embarking on a new adventure in a a whole new part of the country. My goal is to capture the beauty of life as you know it. My passion is to create images that celebrate life and emotion with a fresh and modern style. I'm happy to share my journey with you here on my site.

Available for travel assignments and adventure, always.
We celebrated Matt's older brother's birth 3 years ago (YIKES, time flies) making it all the sweeter to celebrate the new life of this little man. Welcoming babies with dear friends is truly one of life's deepest joys. 

Every child begins the world again... // Henry David Thoreau

We're walkin' in to the fields.
We're walkin in to the forest.
The moon is before us.
Up above
We're holdin' hands in the rain
Sayin' words like I love you
D'you love me? Yeah
-Avett Brothers

"... I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as autumnal sunshine by staying in the house. So I have spent almost all the daylight hours in the open air." -- Nathaniel Hawthorne 1842

Fall has always been my favorite season, but I most certainly enjoy it with a deeper sense of urgency than ever before. When 8 months of hard winter is on the other side, the warm glow of fall days feel that much sweeter.... and I become a bit obsessive about spending as many hours as possible with the fresh air on my face. xoxo
