businesses should compete
based on great stories.
Pure and simple.
It's my job to draw out and photograph your stories
in a way that causes customers to click with your brand.
Nashville-based photographer and visual storyteller
with a great love of people.
My work is focused on telling better stories
for your website, blog, print collateral, social media and in-house displays.
With a BA in Photography from Thomas Edison State College;
and a thesis was written on How Photography Causes Social Change
and an in-progress Master's of Divinity (don't worry, it's online part time and photos are full time!)
your images will come from a deep understanding of the power of images
and the human heart.
Born and raised in the South
with a deep appreciation for roots, narrative, quality,
and well-honed craft.
Lover of hospitality, rocking chairs, deep conversations
and the word "ya'll."
My work has been hailed as unique, transparent + true
and I photograph for a variety of clients.
With a relaxed + professional demeanor
that puts my subjects at ease,
I provide them with delicately constructed images,
telling their story in the best light.
The mediums that I use are diverse; two film Hasselblads to a digital camera.
I love the slowness and intentionality of photographing with film
as well as the delicate color palette that comes from the reaction of chemistry and light.
For clients, I work with a processing lab that can provide scans in double time.
They say you can't be from Nashville and not be a musician.
I play harp, guitar, piano + mountain dulcimer and am a classically trained vocalist. I'm on iTunes, but these days I enjoy playing for fun and worshipping more than anything.
I own a home in South Nashville (am currently pretending I'm in the Southwest by planting a million cacti in my yard.)
However, I travel for around 75% of my commercial and editorial work. Nashville touches seven states and is home to BNA International airport, so being in motion comes naturally.
I rescued Otis in December 2017 as an 8-week old puppy from Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue. He is a smart cookie and definitely keeps me on my toes.
Otis helps me in the office and in the field
and sometimes he likes to frame up a shot or two himself.
