Grab a cup of coffee (or in my case - a chai latte), a glass of wine or a bottle of coke and enjoy viewing my latest work, browsing resources for brides and photographers, and getting a little peek into my life.

What I love most about Addie’s senior session is the variety that we were able to capture for her! The bright orange leaves are the perfect fall backdrop, but the purple flowers give you a hint of summer, too. You would have never known that these were taken in November at Inniswood Metro Gardens!
