Turks & Caicos Last week, I flew to the Turks & Caicos islands for two photoshoots. Sounds like I’ve been glamorously jet-setting, right?! The truth is, I am so grateful to travel for these jobs! The first shoot was wedding portraits of my friend Shree and her husband Phil. They married a year ago in […]

What’s in My Camera Bag

Filed in : Camera Confidence, Life

I am so in tune with my camera gear that I forget other people are probably curious about what’s in my camera bag! It’s always funny when I overhear someone say, “look at all of those cameras she has on her body!” or “she looks like a professional!” I thought I’d share a peek at […]

5 Ways I Document My Life With Scrapbooking

Filed in : Life

Documenting your life with scrapbooking is one of those things that gets a bad wrap. Scrapbooking often conjures up visions of soccer moms pasting puffy stickers onto construction paper. Maybe said mom is even cutting borders around photos with wavy scissors. Joking aside, I really do admire anyone that records their lives in a creative […]

Telling your story is often one of the hardest things to do, and I realized most of you haven’t heard mine! You might’ve heard the short version that I moved from Indiana to Atlanta, went to an art school in Rhode Island, and moved to Charleston to start my photography business. If you’re curious to […]

Art School Nostalgia: RISD Tour

Filed in : Life, Travel

In October, I always get nostalgic for my time at art school. I studied photography at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), located in the heart of Providence, RI. Providence (or anywhere in New England) is the absolute best in the fall. Every time it gets a tad cooler in Charleston I have flashbacks to […]
