Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer
Maryland, Virginia and Washington DC


Photo-journalistic, Radiant, and Chic

I graduated from Winston Salem State University with a Bachelors in Mass Communications. I encompass a range of areas in photography, but what I consider as my specialty is wedding, maternity and lifestyle photography. I discovered my love for photography when I was 10 years old, my parents bought me my very first camera, the Polaroid 2000 (one stop camera)! Omg, I was so in love with this device and concept. I was able to capture the moments of life and receive the prints instantly! At that moment I realized I always wanted to be a photographer.
Growing up I was taught to be caring and thoughtful to others, for that reason I go above and beyond for my clients to ensure their story truly comes to life. If you need that extra encouragement to bring out the better side of you, I’m the girl that will help you shine. I’m thankful for so many things but mostly GOD, without him I wouldn’t been able to turn my passion into my profession! Whether you're preparing for a new addition to your family or the wedding of your dreams, you can trust that I will capture this phase of your life with timeless beauty.
