The thing is, they weren’t JUST birthday pictures. They were special pretty, pink mermaid pictures, complete with tails, shell bras, and water!!

I began my journey with photography after my first son died at 3 months old. I was sadly left with very little images of him. As a result I became obsessed with photographing my 3 children. I studied graphic design at Arkansas Tech University and used that knowledge to further my editing skills.

I specialize in creative children portraits and fine art photography. My style is fun and vibrant, but the real magic is in the memories. I strive to capture more than just an image. My goal is to provide an experience and memory that will last your family a lifetime.
