MEET THE ARTIST

Hello and welcome!

Born in Colorado, raised in Kentucky USA, my heart is in the Red River Gorge, KY. I am inspired by connection, passion and peace. Lover of all things nature, art, light, and animals. I am one of those people who enjoy mornings, but don't get me twisted, I'm a sleepy girl. I believe that life is ripe with beauty, art and I try to cherish it all. I love quiet moments where my only objective is to observe, be present, and tune into my surroundings. I am a wife, critter mother, sister, daughter, friend, member of the queer community, an activist, and community helper. I am an open minded listener, a science nerd, and I adore learning.  I like to think that we all have more in common than we don't.

What draws me to photography? I don't know how to answer this question in short-form that will offer a comprehensive reponse that does my obsession and adoration of photography justice. At the core of it, it is equal parts a form of expression of my heart, it's like an extention of the immense love for life that I carry, and my enormous appreciation for people, connection in all forms, and the human experience. I am honored to step behind my camera to document any moment, at any time, for any person, business, or celebration. I love the people that photography has brought into my life and the fleeting moments we share, or the years of documenting I get to do for them, its all a privlege, the greatest gift. 

What's with the rabbit in your logo? Rabbits are far more than just a mascot for my business, while they are my favorite animal, to me they represent so much of what I love about photography. Rabbits are mysterious, contain a other-worldly magic that I relate to light - there one second, gone the next. They spur curiosity and lead secret, wild, love-filled lives full of community and adventure. Every time I see a wild rabbit or interact with one of my pet bunnies, my heart swells and I cannot help but feel deep gratitude for getting the chance to share this life with these creatures, and all creatures.

With all that said, I bet you can tell I am a big softie. I hope you know that if you ever work with me that you know I so appreciate our time together, no matter the scenario or length of time.

PORTRAITS

 PORTRAIT + COUPLES SESSIONS

Photos to capture milestones or the sweetness of day-to-day activities; life is full of objects, moments, people, places, critters, and heirlooms that deserve their own form of preservation and documentation. Whether you're celebrating a new chapter of life; an engagement, graduation, pregnancy, retirement, a new pet, a new home, just to name some options OR you just want to capture the beauty of life as it is in the here-and-now, in all it's simplicty and comfort, there is no wrong reason to book a portrait session. Part of what makes portrait sessions so fun is how customizable they are; they can be low-key or you can go all out, full glam, and throw a party, or somewhere inbetween.

Every Portrait Session comes with my time and expertise when it comes to planning, posing, travel, outfit recommendations, special use permits, locations and more! Payments are made either in full or broken up into a payment plan that is unique to your needs. Galleries are delivered within 4-10 weeks.

WEDDINGS

WEDDINGS + ELOPEMENTS

I'll be there to capture all the big, joyful moments and the sweet, quiet ones that punctuate the day. It would be an honor to be a part of the team that it takes to make your big day that much more special and fun!


Wedding day coverage is $600 an hour, and rather than having a series of "packages" to choose from, I strategize directly with my clients on how much coverage would be best for their individual needs. Every couple is unique and prioritizes different goals, and it is my hope to structure offerings that are dynamic and supportive to everyone who wants to work with me! In my years of experience I've learned a few "rules of thumb" that can help couples figure out approximateIy how many hours you need to start with to have a photo-making experience that feels intetional and not rushed; a true elopement with just the couple and a friend or two can be documented within 2 to 3 hours, a wedding with 25 guests or less can comfortably be documented starting at 3 hours, and a wedding with 25+ guests needs about 5-6 hours to document most of the day without feeling rushed. My philosophy around wedding day photos is that you deserve to enjoy your day however you please! Rushing from one event or task to another can take away from the importance of the day and I believe my role as your photographer is to pace things in a way that makes room for the heart of the day to shine through. I guaruntee between 40 to 80 images an hour which you will recieve in multiple edits (color and black and white), on a online gallery. Galleries are delivered within 12-20.

Wedding Portraits (before or after your date) are a great option for couple's not wanting to cut into precious moments with loved ones on their big day. You get to prioritize unqiue locations or expereinces, just the two of you, without the pressure of needing to stick with the wedding-day timeline. This can be added to any wedding package for a 15% discount!

Second photographers start at $100 (and goes up to $200 depending on the photographer) an hour, as I want to support other artists as comprehensively as possible. 

Travel fees do apply to any locations more than a 1 hour (one-way) drive from Clay City, Kentucky 40312. For out of state celebrations I require a daily travel stipend for myself and/or a second photographer if one is hired, there will be a price difference for locations in which I can drive to within a day or need to take a flight in order to be there, please inquire for more details.

 


 

Engagement Sessions

Engagement sessions begin at $850 with 70 images for you to keep, and what you can expect is 2 hours of fun, hanging out and loving on your sweetheart while I snap away.  See my Family + Portraits page to learn more about what is included in a 2 hour session. In your engagement session what you can expect to do is snuggle, laugh, snuggle some more, run around somewhere beautiful with me in tow, and stare into the eyes of the human you love most in this world, all while I crack bad jokes. Fun will be had, and I might bring cookies. If you book your wedding photography with me you'll get a discount of 25%(thats a saving of $212) off your session!
