I am an artist that seeks to bring back to life the innocent beauty that once when a child. I want to bring out the real you, the forgotten you, the beautiful you. I am a natural light, boutique photographer based in Northern Alabama specializing in senior and wedding portraiture.
I am not your traditional type photographer, as my heart races with excitement to dig deeper into who you are as an individual. You will walk away with a flare of poetic imagery that screams your name. I look forward to meeting you, hugging you, and becoming friends.
This couple I adored from the start. High school sweethearts are dear to my heart. I pray their love flourishes each day from here on out. Just as life gives us lemons and it started raining 10 minutes before the ceremony was to begin that did not stop this couple to enjoying a plan b and the mother of the bride getting pulled over by a police on the way to the plan B destination. I mean come on! But, we all ended the night in smiles, tears, and sweet moments. Thank you so much for letting me be part of your special day!!!
Is it the art that dies or the soul within that dies? I believe the art never dies. It flares within dark, bright, and mediocre emotions. But as with anything we let die; it has to be resurrected, nurtured, and brought back to life. I think anyone that naturally has a passion, an eye, a burn within for creating not just for self; but for an audience, a following, like-minded individuals, and free-spirited souls they never let it die completely within. It never departs. It only shapes more over time with pain, change, and circumstances that are out of our control. What has stirred these words you may ask? Well, first of all, thank you for taking the time to read. I think many can relate to what I want I feel I need to say. And it begins with an apology.
I am sorry for all the individuals I failed through my time of separation and divorce. It was never because I did not want to love on you, give you my very best, nor ever want to give you less than what you deserved. I simply was aching in disbelief, lost my mind for awhile, and became embarrassed by sharing where I was in life… I am sorry for ones that did not get my full attention.
As looking back from 2013 on I am amazed by the portfolio that has been built. I thank YOU for letting me make it happen. I thank YOU for trusting me. I thank YOU for helping me smile when I got to engage my mind elsewhere other than my own personal failures.
Id do anything to gain the following I once had, but know I let it die. This is a post to remind everyone that I love creating art in my mind through a lens. Take some time to look over some of my favorite images over the past 3 years that show much emotion. And I would love to book a session that represents you!
