I LOVE photography... but you know what I love even more... People! My love of photography does not just come from knowing the technical aspects of a camera, but from the human spirit that steps in front of the camera.  Everyone has a story to tell and my mission is to help others visually tell their stories through the power of photography. Photography is one of the only art forms that can actually freeze time and leave behind an icon or a legacy. It can also be a truly powerful tool to inform the world of pain, suffering, and struggle, but also absolute joy, rejoicing, and celebrating. There is power in photography; it can unite and it can immediately transport you back to that exact moment in time when then shutter was pushed. Talk about amazing! 
If you have a story to tell, no matter what that story is, I would love to help you capture it! 
I specialize in portrait, advertising, commercial, and music photography.
I am currently based in Nashville, TN. 



A little more about me and some things I like to do....


Spending time with family and close friends- Though they may be far away, I make every effort to spend as much time as possible with my family and close friends.  

Philanthropy and Volunteering-I truly believe volunteering is good for the soul! Check out the Philanthropy gallery to see more!

Traveling- I've been to Ireland, Great Britain, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, France, Netherlands, Italy, and Mexico. So many more places to visit!

Music- I listen to EVERYTHING and really enjoy seeing my friends out doing what they love and hearing original music. I think it's cool to see my work help promote artists and musicians. I have loved music since being a small kid. I saw Aerosmith's video to Dude Looks Like a Lady video when I was 7 and have been hooked on rock n roll ever since!  I own 3 guitars and a harmonica and can't really play any of them well... but all it takes is 3 chords and the truth right!?

Sports... especially Football! I am a KC Chiefs fan. I won my fantasy football league one year... which was slightly won by choosing the best looking players... but let's not judge. If anyone would like to introduce me to Travis Kelce, I would greatly appreciate that! I also love to watch the Iowa Hawkeyes, Mizzou, and  the Predators. I route for any local team too (so even the Titans). 

Tattoos- I am a tattoo enthusiast and have 9 so far.  My favorite tattoo shop is Bad Donkey Tattoo in Osage Beach MO and getting a tattoo at Black 13 in Nashville is on my to do list. Thankfully I have good friends who are tattoo artist because i am definitely a photographer, not a person who can draw.

Whiskey, Wine, and Beer- I don't enjoy these necessarily at the same time, but definitely a fan of all of them.

Unicorns, Bacon, Wonder Woman and Batman, Alice in Wonderland, Caffeine, the word AWESOME and Motivational Quotes- Random mix I know but these are some of my favorite things that could be lumped together in one gallery of awesomeness!
