about me

I have loved Birmingham my entire life. I was born and raised right here in a suburb of Trussville. I grew up admiring all things photography. In 10th grade I took my first photography class with Mrs. Frost at Hewitt Trussville High School (I still have my original camera). It sparked my love immediately and I have never stopped. I graduated from Auburn University with a degree in Business Management & Marketing. I want every single session to be fun, easy and when we are done for you to say “hey that wasn’t that bad it was actually fun.”

A little about my life when I am not working...

I also am a Realtor with Brik Realty. This has been a passion of mine for a long time and I love being able to walk my friends and clients through the entire home buying process. I also spend my free time volunteering at the Big Oak Ranch, my kids school and anytime I can help with the non-profit No Longer. One day I dream of traveling to Casa Amor. I also serve at my church, First Baptist Church of Trussville. I help as a leader with our Children's Worship and I teach a wonderful group of 8th grade girls every single Sunday morning. 

My home life is just as fun. I have been married 13 years to my sweet and supportive husband Julian but if you ever meet him we call him Benny. I have 2 sweet and wild children that keep me very busy. Grayson and Jillian are my heart and soul and I hope I am able to leave an amazing legacy for them. We have 2 pets; a sweet old dog, Scout and a kitty, Lela. My life is chaotic going from soccer, dance and church activities.

I look forward to getting to know you and your family and helping you create perfect memories that you will cherish for a lifetime.
