psalm 139

You are a Child of God, you are wonderfully made, dearly loved and precious in his sight.

Like you, I am many things — wife, believer, photographer, educator, doula, and more — but most days, my favorite title is Mommy. Since having two babies of my own, I feel a deep connection toward other moms. We are strong, selfless, sentimental… and sometimes a little isolated. (Raise your hand if you’re reading this at 2 a.m. while feeding your newborn!) But even the hardest days are worth it, as this is likely the most magical and impactful season of our lives.

As your Wilmington family photographer, I am here to help you honor each part of your motherhood experience. From pregnancy announcements to big family sessions, my photography gives you a beautiful, tangible reminder of your current stage of life — however crazy and coffee-fueled it may be right now.

Hi Love,
