Just a few things about myself you might like to know…
I live in the gorgeous mountains of North Carolina, in the quaint town of West Jefferson, just outside of Boone. I have a Bachelor of Science in Technology with a concentration in Photography from Appalachian State University and a minor in Media Studies. I worked for Jonathan Burton Photography as the Studio manager, Graphic artist, Framer, Critic and Artist for almost 7 years. I was privileged to be his assistant and second shooter during photo shoots and weddings during my time there. I believe we both gained a tremendous amount of creativity & humility throughout our professional relationship, but resigned from my position to be a full time mother, and photographer. I love working for all my awesome clients and have been blessed to get to know each of them better throughout the years. There is no greater joy than watching children grow and I look forward to the amazing and totally rewarding experience which is currently upon me each and every day!! What a blessing!! I love designing, pretty much anything really… I create photo books, storybook wedding and portrait albums, cards, promo items, blogs, jewelry, food, photographs, crafts with yarn (ie. knitting and crocheting), drawings, nature art. I also offer an awesome line of handcrafted frames which my husband Devin creates in his workshop.
I love all things outdoors including hiking, biking, boating, and laying in the sun. I have a sweet supportive, inspiring and very patient husband who creates things too… photography and wood are his passions. After graduating with a photojournalism degree from Randolph Community College, he worked for the Asheville Citizen Times, before our meeting and his interest in the family business. I am blessed to have him as my assistant at weddings, critic afterwards and encouraging partner throughout this entrepreneurial journey. Together, as a husband and wife team, we have 15+ years experience in the photography industry. We strive to capture images that illustrate souls and reflect love in this life. We are so thankful for the opportunity to be able to do this! Devin’s day gig is wood craftsman and his business is Carolina Farm Table. Check out his work when you get a chance at www.carolinafarmtable.com. We have been blessed with two amazing, bright and energetic loves, Nora and Sara Rose- our daughters. They inspire me to live a more God centered life and challenge my creative side even further. They are certainly the perfect mix of me and my sweet hubs. These two have been my sidekicks on portrait sessions and my digital analysts. Currently they are learning CS5, Lightroom and Nora’s favorite, Skype with Gammy ;). Last, but not least, we have two amazing doggie’s, Skyler (border collie mix) and Lucy Lou (Long haired dachshund mix) who bring us much joy and patience as well. I love all things colorful and vibrant and look for outstanding design in the world around me. I love antiquing, mexican food, the beach, and above all- the Lord who has blessed me with this abundant and sometimes crazy life!
