I love catching those moments that only come around once and seem to go too quickly: engagements, expanding bellies & growing families.  Most days you'll find me chasing my three kids with a cold cup of coffee in hand.

I love soft, bright color & images that brim with joy and life.

I married my college sweetheart and we have 3 of the spunkiest babies with curls for days.

I was born & raised in Indiana and moved to SC after college (Go, Purdue Boilermakers!). Be prepared to answer to both "you guys" & "y'all".
