I'm a documentary photographer from Kansas City. I believe there is currency in authenticity and truth. The very best, most meaningful photographs celebrate you living your relationships. The end. No amount of beauty can compete with preserved presence. When 99.99% of our days feel urgent, it’s more important than ever that your images carry a reassuring peace and lasting reminder that love was present. Curating those images for future generations means you don’t have to self-edit or filter who you are because there are no prerequisites for worthiness. No wedding budget or weird family dynamic will ever affect that. I promise. Also Pinterest gives me anxiety.

I met my husband on a pretty weird blind date. He snores and I’ve kicked him in his sleep every night for the last 11 years (He’ll never read this. I could say anything right now). We have 3 really great kids and a dog named Kitty. We are insanely far from perfect, but there's a lot of love. Eating late at night is one of my favorite sports. I have a vacuuming schedule and I refuse to eat fish. I love prison documentaries, inappropriate memes, laughter, and sugar.
