live, love, create.

I'm a fine art and portrait photographer located in Winston-Salem, NC. Originally from Wheeling, WV, I became interested in photography at a very young age and have been practicing it for as long as I can remember. I began working with models in 2013 and clients shortly thereafter.

I love conveying emotion through photography and storytelling, and finding the extraordinary in the ordinary. My other passions include turtle conservation, cats, singing, web design and video games. My ultimate dream is to move closer to the ocean to help with sea turtle conservation.

I shoot with a Sony A65 DSLR and use Adobe PhotoShop CC and Adobe Lightroom 5 on an iMac for photo editing. My current lenses include: Sony 18-55mm f3.5-5.6, Sony 50mm f1.8 and a Sigma 70-300mm f4-5.6. If you’d like to know more or ask any other questions, email me at
