Teen Desert Portrait Session

Sometimes those in-between years can be awkward and we don’t feel right in our own skin. These teens years are where we try new things, see if they feel right to us, and we then adjust course bit by bit. It’s a crucial time to establish grounded thinking in our youth, showing them their potential and that the world can be open to them to explore. That is what Addyson reminded me of, while we were shooting her session. There’s a special twinkle in her eyes that represents wonder and amazement. I wish I could bottle that and keep it forever. Thank you Addyson for bringing your authentic self and letting it shine through those soulful eyes.

Fueled by equal parts Earl Grey tea and passion, I spend my days capturing the kinds of images that make you stop, smile and ask time to please slow down. I believe in real moments and heartfelt conversations on the front porch. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come.
