Hangin’ with my goofy, hot-guy of a husband and our doggies! (hiking + planning our next adventure + dancing around the kitchen in my undies)
Obsessing over the REAL love stories I get to capture for my job. (Is this a dream?)
Scheming a sneak attack from the tree house with my Nerf gun when hubby gets home.

I’m really not like every other photographer out there. I didn’t grow up with a camera in hand. I fell in love with nature first.
Trail runs and rock climbing, kayaking and camping, growing up on a ranch in the middle of nowhere all led me to believe in the beauty of the REAL, raw, ridiculously awesome outdoors. I wanted to capture that beauty, and that led me to my camera. From there, I found out taking pictures of real, raw beauty was JUST as rad - and honestly more fun - when it came to humans in love.
I’ve found that I feel my best and strongest when I’m out of my comfort zone, exploring new heights (sometimes LITERALLY), letting go of the day-to-day world, and just soaking in what fills my soul.
It’s my mission to craft adventurous photo experiences that capture that version of the real you and your real love in a way that's only found when you get away from it all.
Climbing the face of Sugarloaf (an 1800 ft, multi-pitch climb in the Organ Mountains)
Stepping away from my career as a NICU nurse. I walked away from what I dreamed about for something I never thought possible. I’ll hold those sweet babes I cared for in my heart forever!
Taking the leap to start my own business and follow my heart for photography.
is one where you gain the courage and real-life tips to fill your life’s journey with adventure. That might mean traveling somewhere you never dreamed was possible (or sane), planning a super rad wedding experience, or trying a new, fun-filled date night with your love! It might mean deciding to take a new path, or just get to know the one you’re on really well.
Above all, I hope this space is one that inspires you to be the most stinkin' awesome version of yourself.
