Hello! I am a portrait photographer located in central Pennsylvania. I was born and raised right here in central PA. While I didn't always know I wanted to become a photographer, I always loved and treasured photographs. As a child (& now, too!) I would pore over old and new photos of my family for hours!


I went on to get my Bachelor's degree in Graphic Design and minor in Photography at Liberty University in Virginia.


Photography combines everything that I love: creativity, people, and the beauty of the world. I fell in love with the art in 2009. My goal is to present my clients with images that show their relationships between one another and their true personalities. I love my job!

I happily married the man of my dreams in September of 2014. We added a baby boy, Everett, in September of 2016. He sure does keep us busy! Our life is full of family, friends, and HGTV! ;)
