PROFILE I am a wedding and portrait photographer based on Amelia Island in Florida . I specialize in life inspired family and children’s portraiture as well as wedding photography, producing images with both beautiful lighting and narrative compositions while executing them in a more subtle and simplistic style. Often described as “serene” and “timeless”, my images are created to show an intimate sense of self, to capture the characteristics and qualities that make each of us unique. My images are influenced from my educational background in Journalism, Photojournalism, Fine Art Photography, and Anthropology. My father also played a vital role by giving me my first camera, building a darkroom and teaching me to print by the time I was 12 years old. Maybe it was this early experience that explains why my heart is so deeply rooted in photography, alway seeing life's moments as still images. Originally from Georgia, I moved to Telluride, Colorado when I was 22 and began working as a “lifestyle” photographer for numerous magazines and editorial publications. My personal life led me to England where I pursued a successful career as a wedding and portrait photographer , winning the title of “British Photographer of the Year” in 2007. My work has been published in many British publications such as, “Professional Photographer”, “The British Journal of Photography”, “Master Photography”, “You and Your Wedding”, “Wedding Venues and Services”. “Cosmopolitan Bride”, and Conde-Nast “Brides”, Black and White Spider Awards (2012) and Photo District News-PDN World in Focus Winner (2013). During my 13 years in England, I became a wife and mother of two beautiful boys, who are regularly featured throughout my portrait work. I had the opportunity to travel the world and experience other cultures as well as form many meaningful relationships along the way. Ultimately being lured back to the States by the promise of warmer weather and plenty of sunshine, I moved to Florida in 2011. I have chosen Amelia Island as a new background for not only my work, but my life. I am inspired by the beauty found here in the landscape of this island and the surrounding areas and look forward to sharing this inspiration with others.
