in my own words...
of all people
I'm a 𝐝𝐞𝐭𝐚𝐢𝐥𝐞𝐝 hair and skin editor,
I'm really 𝐟𝐮𝐧 on shoot days.
I'll make you feel 𝐛𝐞𝐚𝐮𝐭𝐢𝐟𝐮𝐥,
tell you where to put 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐬.
Your 𝐟𝐚𝐦𝐢𝐥𝐲 will love me
so will your 𝐝𝐨𝐠.
𝐈'𝐦 𝐜𝐨𝐨𝐥 under pressure,
I'm always 𝐨𝐧 𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐞.
My job is centered around family dynamics. 𝐄𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲 𝐟𝐚𝐦𝐢𝐥𝐲 𝐢𝐬 𝐝𝐢𝐟𝐟𝐞𝐫𝐞𝐧𝐭, and I embrace that. If your child needs a little extra patience, I have the time. If certain family members don't get along, I can absorb that and help you navigate your wedding day without stress. 𝐈'𝐦 𝐠𝐨𝐨𝐝 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐩𝐞𝐨𝐩𝐥𝐞. I think they respond well to my enthusiasm.
I've been told I have a heart of gold.
YOU SHOULD WORK WITH ME BECAUSE OF WHO I AM AND THE QUALITY OF MY WORK.

IT ALL STARTED WHEN...
I started as a professional photo editor in 2006.
I worked part time as a studio manager and photo editor for a photography legend, Lance Johnston, while I went to college. I worked on the open second floor of his studio. I could see and hear everything Lance said to his clients. I learned some amazing techniques from Lance – even how to make a photo look hand painted.
I also put his weddings albums together – one 5x5 print at a time. He had a system at weddings. He knew the staple items to catch at every single event and he was consistent. This is how I learned how to put a wedding timeline together.
I had hundreds of 5x5 prints that I had to arrange in a way that best told the story of the day. This inspired me always think of a wedding as a story. Even if there are unexpected twists and turns – those are the details you want to remember.
After I graduated from the University of Central Arkansas, I worked in corporate America. I built two marketing departments and was also the graphic designer for the third largest real estate company in the nation. I offered our agents headshot sessions through the company!
Before I was anything else, I was an actor.
I helped my friends update their headshots!
I started creating a style.
People started talking.
And I kept pushing.
Business is great!
Thank you guys!
