I love to tell a story with my sessions that reflect the personality and mood of each individual. I want to capture YOUR story. I want to evoke tears and goosebumps when you view your images for the first time.  I don’t want to just take pretty pictures, I want to capture the essence, romance, love and fun of the day.  I prefer to meet with each of my clients before our portrait session so I can plan and cater our time together and produce images as unique as they are. My style of photography is a can be a bit out of the box. I love to take advantage of unlikely environments, unique angles and dramatic lighting that give my images that added “punch.”   Let’s chat!

Individual & Austin Photography



  • The sounds of my girls giggling.
  • Vanilla creamer… I rarely actually taste the coffee. I’ve been known to reheat two-day-old coffee and just simply add vanilla creamer… easy as that!
  • Silly people.
  • Everything horses. Every single spare second of my time is spent with my girl , Coco.
  • My Canon 5 D Mark III camera ..I just can’t say enough about this marvel with all those “bells and whistles.” I use it for all of my Austin photography.


  • Negative people
  • Hot tubs… I know, it’s weird.
  • Okay, I’m just going to say it… CAMPING! The countless hours spent packing all of the coolers, equipment and clothes only to drive there, unpack, set up camp, then ONCE AGAIN repack the car… Oh yes, then we drive home and I have to unpack the car again… “Honey? Can’t we just get a nice hotel NEXT TO the wilderness?”
