I'm proud to be a Southern girl, born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama where my roots run deep, my business was born and family is everything. When I was growing up, Sundays meant church and southern supper at my grandparents' house, where we gathered around the table, no topic was off limits, and we filled our stomachs with my grandmother's sweet tea, pot roast, fried okra, mashed potatoes and warm homemade banana pudding. Family, work and the food scene keep me running back to my hometown of Birmingham, but Nashville has been home now for 5 years and it's where my creative soul continues to be fueled with songwriter nights, music festivals and long drives on peaceful farm roads with the windows down.
I'm always wandering to find inspiration in interesting people, food, films, fashion, homes and design. I've traveled on assignment to France, London, and Nova Scotia to tell clients' stories in images and get restless when a few months go by and I haven't traveled somewhere new to experience its sights, sounds and tastes, both stateside and abroad.
Prior to becoming a photographer, I was an Art Director for a magazine publisher, where I learned the importance of brand identity, valuing relationships and shooting with the end use in mind. With over 18 years experience shooting digital and film, my clients include professional athletes, radio personalities, authors and artists. I have also worked with top retailers, restaurants, advertising agencies, interior designers, contractors, magazine publishers and non-profit organizations. In my spare time I volunteer for Musicians on Call and Saddle Up in the greater Nashville community, teach Pilates in my neighborhood studio, and enjoy spending time with my husband, two teenage kids, our chocolate lab "Scout".
