I am a lover of all things cozy and I truly believe you can never have too many blankets.  When I am not behind the camera I am behind my iPhone taking pictures and videos of my dogs and my kids.  I am a live music, travel, and culture enthusiast.  I truly believe that the best gifts are experiences, not things.
      
I am first and foremost a child of God who has been saved by grace through the birth, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  I am a wife of 8 years to Travis, bonus mom to our pre-teen daughter Taygen Blayke and mama to the snuggliest little boy there ever was, Hunter Lee.  

There are few things I love more than baby giggles, wagging tails, and photographs. I am inspired by the beauty of nature, genuine connections, heartfelt laughter, and the unconditional love of dogs.  



Your new photographer, best friend and biggest cheerleader.

Meet my two Golden Retrievers:
Bazinga & Penni!

They are our couch loving, heart stealing, big time shedding, four legged children. 

I have to vacuum everyday and buy lint rollers in bulk from Costco. 

Worth it? 100%.
