I'm abby!

I’m a lifestyle photographer living in sunny Charleston, South Carolina. I was born in Indiana, moved to Atlanta, and studied photography at Rhode Island School of Design. I moved to Charleston after interning at Charleston magazine, and now I never want to leave the coast! Most days you can find me working in my bedroom/office while jamming to a record (most likely Tennis or Jojo circa 2004). When I’m not photographing, you can find me connecting with other women entrepreneurs, re-watching Parks and Recreation on Netflix, or biking around the city with my smarty pants engineer boyfriend. I’ll eat strawberries all day every day and the crying tears of joy emoji is my #1 go-to. 

My photography style is all about authenticity, details, and personality. Documenting the life and work you create in a fun and beautiful way is my jam!






Yes, the kind your mom makes. But a little less soccer ball stickers and a little more concert pics and ticket stubs.



A weekend really isn't complete until I've put my toes in the sand on Sullivan's Island.



Some might say it's truly absurd how many strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries I eat. Can't live without 'em!



I work with my record player right behind me so I can flip records all day long. If you need a recommendation I've got you.



Give me a margarita with chips & guac and I'm all set!
