Where's home?

Birmingham, AL.

What 3-4 main words would you use to describe your photography?

Light, romantic, sexy.

What's in your bag?

  • Mamiya 645 with 80mm f/2.8
  • Canon 5D mk III
  • 50mm 1.2
  • 35mm1.4
  • 70-200 II IS 2.8

One lens only, for the rest of your life. GO!

Hmm, for digital it would have to be my 50mm 1.2. It's my baby! For film, my 80 2.8 is a dream.

Dream wedding gig?

My dream wedding would be a stunning couple in the woods of Alaska, a light, pastel color scheme, gorgeous details and snow capped mountains.

Last place you traveled?

I don't get to travel as much as I would like, but I did book a wedding in Ireland that I am SO excited about. The last place I traveled was for a vow renewal in Savannah, GA.

Last time you laughed?

Last night. I laugh all the time- laughing brings joy to the soul.

What's the best part of your job?

Another hard one...The best part of my job is probably the feeling I get when clients tell me how beautiful I have made them feel. That's important to me.

Favorite image you've captured recently? 

Well, I specialize in boudoir and wedding photography, and my last shoot was a fabulous boudoir session in my studio. My client wanted to feel not just beautiful, but sexy...and the results were STUNNING.

What makes you different?

I think what makes me different from other photographers is not just my work but connection with them. I strive to create a relationship with my clients, to build trust and show them their true beauty. Plus, I am totally hysterical.

How do you use the La Rousse glass box?

I LOVE the La Rousse boxes. I can't say enough good things about them. When my boudoir clients purchase my heirloom box, I have each glass box etched with the lady's name on top - which adds such character and beauty to it. I also give these boxes with the crystal flash drive to all of my wedding clients. La Rousse, you rock my world.
