Whether you are a photographer or a client, have you ever wondered what is in my bag? Or should I say bags? (Huge shoutout to The House of Flynn for making such amazing products!) When I first started out I had a Nikon D3200 crop sensor camera and only a kit zoom lens. With the help of my favorite photography group, I made the decision to purchase the 50mm 1.8; my very first prime lens. I bought that lens in September of 2015 and now I own 2 cameras, 5 lenses, and much, much more! I purchase almost all of my gear through Best Buy and also through Amazon.
My favorite lens: Throughout the past few years, I have come to find out that I am more of a prime lens gal. I find myself using my 35mm lens more than any other lens in my bag!
Why I chose the camera I did: I chose the D750 due the amazing low light capabilities it has! I have never seen a camera work so well and be able to bump my ISO like I can!

Is there anything better than a maternity session on the beach…? (Hint: the answer is no…. lol) I vividly remember the day that Anna told me she was pregnant. I was just leaving base in Germany and pulled over since she was calling me on video. To say I was in disbelief is an […]
COVID-19 has definitely changed a lot this year in so many ways from how we style and celebrate milestones to how we socialize with friends and family. This past week Chandler asked me for some ideas of how to capture her birthday which just so happened to be the last day of her lock in […]
A little backstory before product photography came into my life… I started really getting into photographing other people when we were in Florida in 2015. We then moved to Maryland in December of 2015 and that is when my business grew. I had regular clients, weddings, second shot a lot of weddings, and finally began […]
I remember how terribly inconsistent I was with poses during an engagement session back when I started photography and my oh my.. Do you remember Anna? Back in July of 2016 I was invited to a styled shoot by a friend 30 minutes before it started. I ended up getting stuck in traffic on […]
One thing I have learned from this quarantine (as a family photographer) is that there is always more work that can be done to work on your craft. Even if that does not include shooting. I am going back through older sessions and came across this session with my best friend Natalie of Natalie Grace […]
If you are stationed in Germany, you have most likely been to Burg Lichtenberg at least a handful of times. This is one of my favorite castles to go to for family sessions. The kids love to run around and play and the adults can really take in the scenery around Burg Lichtenberg. Going to this […]
