About Us

If you’re a parent, a spouse, a business person or all of the above (like me!), you know that life is busy; life is hectic. It’s hard to take a moment to sit down and really enjoy the life and the love that you’re living. That’s why I’m here. I take the hard part out. I capture those moments, those twinkling eyes, those secret smiles between you and your loved ones. But, enough about me…our focus is you!


What to Expect

To look and feel like a model…pampered like at a spa…laughing and having fun. Your photo session starts with a consultation to determine how you want to be photographed, a look at your wardrobe for the perfect clothing (and I have a few pieces in the studio, too!), professional hair and makeup in the studio, lunch, and then an afternoon of your being in front of my camera. I want to show you how beautiful others see you. Bring a friend, your mother, your daughter for a very special day of making memories and having beautiful photographs to be cherished for a lifetime.

Let’s capture every facet of your life. Your wonderful life, your growing child, your romance–all of these things deserve to be documented and shared with future generations.

I know that these are just some of the reasons you’re here today, and I’m here to tell you: I can do those things. Together, we can create an album, conversation piece of wall art, and many other timeless heirlooms that your family will cherish for generations.

The most important things that you can expect from me are:

• Making you laugh
• Making you smile, a genuine smile
• Illuminating your true beauty
• Noticing (and capturing) the details that will mean the most to you once the moment is gone
• Showing you in your true element



I am located in Helena, Alabama, a historic town with plenty of character for those environmental sessions. But, I am also willing to travel.  While portrait photography has been my focus for over ten years, I also photograph couples, families, and weddings. I would love to help you feel fabulous!
