MEET THE PHOTOGRAPHER:
A deep love of the outdoors combined with admiration for my own children manifested itself into a passion for photography. An intense urge to document connection for others ensued and the creativity progressed into a personal and unique editing style. Creating emotive portraits of families, children, and couples in or near Sylvania, Georgia is my specialty. My heart lies in the natural, beautiful interactions between people and their surroundings. I’m a small town, family oriented, coffee drinking boy mom who loves all things nature and Jesus!
