Photography for Unique Souls…
As a traveling photographer, I don’t utilize an indoor studio. I travel to you, in any season, rain or shine, to capture unique images while providing an experience you’ll never forget. When you find a photographer you can have fun with and make a life-long friend, that’s priceless.
I believe in capturing the beautiful authenticity of the reality of moments, not cookie-cutter false representations with fake smiles with no emotional connection. I understand the value of your images and am able to provide memories that make you smile, cry and feel alive for years to come, not some random snapshot anyone can take with an iPhone. This is the truth of your existence forever preserved like a photographic fossil.
In my work, I strive to see things differently. To find the magic hidden in the ordinary and capture souls in their truest form. I document what I see...raw, honest and organically. I don’t edit you to look like someone you’re not. Images are captured with the eye of a Photographic Artist who genuinely cares about you and your photos, with the courage to tell you the truth, the vision to capture the reality and the soul of a friend you’ve known for years.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you travel?
Yes! I love an adventure, so am proud to be a traveling photographer. I make it easy on my clients by traveling to them. Contact me for a quote.
Why do you use a contract and will I be required to sign it?
I use a contract to ensure we both understand expectations, to explain policies and to protect us both from misunderstandings. We are both required to sign it prior to services being provided. I will not provide services otherwise.
What's Included with photo sessions?
All photographic services include a free, password protected online photo archive for 1-year with a print release the option to purchase additional photos, prints and products. Although a selection of digital images are included with all services, to be Eco-friendly (and save you money), prints and products are extra. They can be ordered anytime, as needed and I can assist you with ordering, delivery and display. The service fee covers my time providing services, editing images, and an ordering consult after.
Can I have all the images from the session? Can I have the RAW files?
As a Mother, I know what it's like to wonder if there are any images deleted that I might have wanted. Every session contains images that didn't go as planned. People blink, kids make faces, wind blows hair. Stuff goes wrong and not every image is flattering. Although only the best images make it to the gallery, I still consider the point of view of my client with every image I review for deletion. If I have an image that is less than technically perfect, yet conveys a moment that I think you might want, I always include it in your gallery. This is why you may find a few images that aren't really worthy of my portfolio, but may still convey something of importance to you.
However, I don't release RAW files or images that are deemed unfit for delivery. If you truly need the RAW files because you don't like my style of editing, then I'm not the right photographer for you. Would you go to a fancy restaurant just to take home raw ingredients and cook it yourself? No? Then please don't request RAW files for self-editing. Photographers are only picky about this because clients often edit these files and post the images as an innacurate representation of our professional abilities.
As per our agreed upon contract, the photographer is not liable to deliver every image or the RAW files, and the amount of images delivered is left to the discretion of the photographer.
Portraits: Can I bring my pet??
Of course! They're family. Please no pets that are sick, aggressive or are not fully housetrained. You are responsible for all damages or injuries in connection with your pet's presence.
Can you Photoshop me? Maybe I should wait to do the session. I'm too...
I hear objections like this alot: "I'm too overweight to look good in a photo, I'll get photos when I'm in better shape". Life is too short, even without makeup or being dressed up, we're all beautiful and need memories for the future. Please don't avoid the camera for so long you fail to have memories to leave behind for loved ones.
I'm looking for the cheapest photographer in the area...
Hey, I totally get it. Your time is limited, so you’re moving quickly through websites looking for prices, but should you really be searching for the ‘cheapest’ photographer? Professional photography is an investment and you get what you pay for. You deserve a photographer willing to travel wherever you need, in any season or weather condition, to provide the images you seek while providing an experience you’ll never forget. Images captured with the eye of a Photographic Artist who genuinely cares about you and your photos. Who understands the value of your images and is able to provide memories that make you smile, cry and feel alive for years to come, not some random snapshot anyone can take with an iPhone. Find a photographer with work you love, the courage to tell you the truth, the vision to capture the reality and the soul of a friend you’ve known for years. When you find a photographer you can have fun with and make a life-long friend, well that’s priceless.

I am one of the most affordable professional photographers in South Central Kentucky. If the amount is outside your budget, no worries — we can setup a no-interest payment plan or I can refer you to another photographer in my professional network.

Prints & Products
Beautiful prints you can feel. Never again will your expensive professional images be forgotten or lost on a phone or computer. Hold them in your hand, show them off and pass them down for generations. The unparalleled beauty of handmade prints and products rivals the instant gratification provided by a digital image.
Lifetime guarantee against fading or yellowing!
Why choose professional prints?
Why not? It may be ‘cheaper’ to go to a local retail store for prints, but you are not getting what you paid for when you hired a professional. Not choosing professional prints is like taking the one you love to an insanely expensive restaurant for dinner, only to not buy any food. You might enjoy the complimentary appetizer, but it’s not the real deal. Retail labs do not have the depth of color nor is it as accurately represented as what the photographer captured or intends for display. You also do the photographer a disservice by displaying their work on poor quality prints. If you like that Ooompa-Loompa look, then by all means, save money. If however, you'd rather look as beautiful as you are, then trust your photographer. Besides, clients enjoy a no-fee replacement if the delivered prints look 'off', fade or yellow with time. If you print elsewhere, the cost for replacement is yours.
