I have always been fascinated by the way a photo could capture a feeling. During my high school years, I would often drive all over the back roads of Johnston County after school on beautiful sunny days and stop along the way to take photos of scenery that really spoke to my soul. Even though my equipment was a digital camera and the editing of said photos was altered beyond any natural tone with "picnik" filters, I can still look back on those images and remember how it felt to be young, wild and free.
Fast forward to 2016 when I bought my first DSLR camera - I did that very same thing. I stopped on the way home from picking it up and took pictures of an old tobacco barn in the middle of a field with the sun setting through the leaves of a huge old oak tree. Talk about sparking joy!
Although my focus has shifted from landscapes to people, I still have that same passion for capturing a moment before it slips away. My mission is to collect memories through the lens of my camera so you can look back on those images to relive the emotions and sentiments of that day. I'm based in North Carolina, but I'm always up for traveling so if you're interested in booking me, get in touch and we'll get this show on the road!
