If you want to meet someone who is joyful, driven, an overachiever, smart, and who has a servant’s heart – it’s Sam. Some of you may remember when I did her senior pictures a couple years ago. After Sam graduated from high school – including a course in phlebotomy – she went on a nine-month-long mission […]

Y’all, I am so excited to share this senior session today! Hannah and Cameron both graduated this past year and decided to get pictures done together. They’ve been together for two years!

Meet Kenny and Callie – one of the sweetest couples I’ve worked with. Kenny contacted me a couple weeks ago, telling me that he was coming to NC and wanted to propose to his girlfriend. Could I possibly shoot his proposal? It was a tight time frame, as he was planning to pop the question […]

Every time I photograph my cousins, they get a little easier. I get a few more smiles, more faces looking at the camera. Perhaps it’s because they’re getting older. Could be they’re getting used to me. Whatever it is, this is definitely our best shoot yet! I’ve been taking pictures of this family for maybe […]

I’m not sure how I end up with so many sweet, fun couples. John and Jessica were certainly no exception! From the start, this couple was enthusiastic, adventuresome, joyful, and all-in-all, people you genuinely enjoy being with. John and Jessica are originally from Arizona where they met in MIDDLE SCHOOL! They were friends all through […]

Meet Hannah and Michael: possibly the cutest newlywed couple ever. My heart smiled when I heard their story – they met over fifteen years ago as kids in Hannah’s mom’s homeschool choir. “Even then, I noticed him,” said Hannah. They started dating when she was sixteen. A few years passed. Everyone held their breaths, waiting. […]

Biltmore Estate Newlywed Shoot | Hannah and Michael | St Louis & Rolla Wedding Photographer


Dear Momma, Someone once told me that he never realized growing up that his mom worked two jobs; she’d go to work and then come home, get dinner, do laundry, and clean. I didn’t realize it either, but you didn’t work two jobs. It was more like six. I don’t think I’ve met anyone who […]

An Open Letter to My Mom


Dear Allison, It’s been a little over a year since we became best friends, and I’m still a little overwhelmed and perplexed as to why God would give me such a wonderful person as a best friend. I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone quite like you. You are such an amazing person. You’re always […]

An Open Letter to my Best Friend


When Amy and I got together to do our headshot swap, of course she took some pictures of me. Which was fabulous! I needed an update, per usual. We had such a great time and I love the pictures she took of me! I’m sure you’ll agree that she’s quite talented. Enjoy a few of […]
