It’s become SUCH second nature for this girl to step into the sand, photograph people til she’s content and end up coming home covered in sand and saltwater and with the fullest heart. But getting to the point where beach sessions were EASY and effortless started with me figuring quite a few things out to…

Prioritizing Gear Purchases | Photography

Salt Air Motherhood Experience | Outer Banks Workshop!

A pattern started to develop over the past couple of years, and I finally caught on. I was mostly mentoring women who were either thinking about becoming mothers or already were. Not all of them, but most. My favorite thing about this was that we were on the same level of understanding where we knew that we…
