I am a Greenville native with interests in so many things. I am a mother, a wife, a person in long term recovery, a body positive advocate, a yogini, and a woman. When I first started this business, my goal was to celebrate the beauty of women through photography and style. As I’ve continued to grow as an individual and as a business owner, I have begun to focus on this radical idea that we are all perfect exactly as we are. How that will affect my business as I move forward, I have yet to find out, but I know that my mission is to serve women in a way that makes them feel supported, respected, loved, and cherished. I want to provide that to others because I have learned to provide that for myself. And so I hope that whatever service you are wanting from me, that you walk away feeling all of those things.
My photography style is similar to my personality; eclectic and emotional. I picked up my camera when my first baby was born in the hopes of capturing little details of their lives as they grow. I wanted her to look back on her childhood pictures and see her as I saw her, beautiful as a child of God, full of love, happiness, and LOTS of emotions. As I kept bringing out that big old camera, I found that it created an outlet for me on days that seemed to never end. I realized the power of this art form and how it can expand beyond pictures of my kids. I realized I could be a source of empowerment for other women, capturing our strength, femininity, and unique beauty through the lens.
My goal as a photographer is to help my client celebrate the season of life they’re in for years and generations to come.
I don’t believe that being stylish means that you have to look like you’re walking the runway. In fact, the reason I wanted to become a stylist was because there seemed to be such a disconnect between what we see in magazines and how we dress ourselves. How we dress is not about being vain, it’s about treating ourselves and our bodies with respect. Each morning, when I take the time and the energy to put on something that makes me feel good about myself, I am putting energy towards caring for myself. Style is so much more than just wearing the right earrings or grabbing the right purse, it’s feeling good in what we’re wearing and allowing our personalities to show through. Every single woman out there has a sense of style, most of the time, they just need a little cheerleader to help them get out of their comfort zone. So, rah rah, here I am!
