I’m a Nashville-based family & personal branding photographer. After learning the ins and outs of running my own successful business, I’ve also started sharing my knowledge with other entrepreneurs as a systems and workflow educator.

My greatest joy is capturing radiant, timeless images of families that I know they will pass down for generations. My bright, colorful, cheerful style is inspired by the Fuji400h vibe. I also have the privilege of taking branding photos for small business owners, and I love that my photography style showcases their personality and skills.

When I’m not taking heartfelt family images or stand-out personal branding photos, you’ll find me teaching other business owners about automating and streamlining. I teach others how to grow their business with intentional workflows, automations, and with strategic systems. You can find me teaching others via my podcast: The Systems & Workflow Magic Podcast (coming December 2021) & via my blog too!

My faith and love for my little family motivate me to help other business owners find the joy and freedom that I have found in running a successful small business.

Whether you’re here to find a family or personal branding photographer OR learn more about automating your small business – I am SO honored you have stopped by and I hope to serve you soon!

Capturing the brilliance and radiance of families, couples, and business owners in every unique season of life makes me come alive. I get so much joy out of serving others through my craft and skill of photography.

Every part of my process is intentional. I make sure to take the time to understand your vision and earn your trust. 

Life doesn’t happen on accident… neither do beautiful photos.

I’m honored to capture your legacy in photos that will become thoughtful heirlooms.

crafting radiant legacies

Your family memories deserve more than blurry iPhone shots

“I’m honored to create heirloom photos that capture your family’s legacy”

Childhood passes quickly and memories fade, but timeless, radiant photographs are forever.
When I photograph your family, I get to know your kids personally before we start so I’m able to capture their sweet personalities, inside jokes, and warm embraces in images you’ll always treasure.

"We did a sunrise session with Dolly and I just cannot stop staring at the photos! She was so fun and so flexible and patient and was just such a huge joy to work with. We are lifelong clients now!!"
