your Gatlinburg, Smoky Mountain Photographer

with a passion for capturing the essence of your family in the stunning backdrops of the national park. I was born and raised in the Smoky Mountain area and could be found during most days during my childhood climbing up mountains and exploring the river with my dogs. At my core, I'm a creative spirit, deeply in love with art and the process of making it. You'll find me embracing the beauty of the outdoors almost daily, hiking, chasing breathtaking views, and immersing myself in the river for landscape, flora, and fauna photography. I thrive on authenticity and am a true go-with-the-flow kind of person.

After I was able to get my first "real" camera my skills grew fast and I transitioned from a career in law enforcement to pursuing my career now as a full-time professional photographer.

I know, big career change. However, my background working with Juvenile Justice individuals helped me realize what kind of photography I love.

I love working with kids and making them feel comfortable and seen.

So I merged my creative side with my previous experience and training with kids

to be a full-time family photographer.

For me, photography is more than just capturing smiles and posed portraits.

I specialize in genuine interactions and moments that reflect the true spirit of your family. While holiday card shots will happen, the majority of your gallery will showcase the beautiful connections you share – laughter, soulful embraces, and everything in between.

I am also passionate about capturing ALL families

I've gotten a certification to work with folks with disabilities, and I've also clocked in many hours of training working with those who have diasabilities in my previous job too. I'm all about making family photo sessions inclusive for everyone.

I believe every family should have photos that scream "us"! Whether it's bringing along a favorite stuffed animal, finding accessible spots, or any other special needs you have, I'm here for it. Family photography is a party for everyone, and I'm on a mission to make sure every family gets those wall-worthy pics that truly capture their unique vibe.
