The Nitty Gritty…

I love photographing people, designing logos & all things print related. I have a deep appreciation for beautiful typography & letterpress printing and I secretly want to own my own press. My obsession for vintage cameras & old wood type runs deep. I've seen every episode of The Office & I have a serious addiction to chai lattes.

Nashville, Tennessee is my hometown & I have a BFA in Graphic Design from the Savannah College of Art & Design. My husband & I have lived all over: from Georgia to Colorado to Massachusetts and now New Jersey. I'm a momma to a wonderful boy named Beckett & little girl Ruby. I love that my life has taken me on so many adventures and to wonderful places, but I think I'll always be a Southern girl at heart.

Growing up, I tinkered with my dad's collection of cameras and I'm thankful for supportive parents that encouraged me to be an artist. I look forward to Spring as much as snowy Winter mornings. I'm fond of vintage fabrics as much as modern architecture. But most of all, I simply love to create things & I'm dedicated to capturing life's little moments… especially yours.
