Zoë’s Graduation Session


I can say with full confidence that Zoë is my first client who had flaming nails, and glasses and completely repped Meg Thee Stallion and her newly earned degree status with equal pride. 


When I saw the bedazzled grad cap I knew that this would not be the typical session. What I love about what I do is that for a few hours during a session I get a window into everyone’s personality and Zoë is not just focused and determined, a great planner and considerate, but she is FUN!  We took these shots in the full evening sun and got so many cute pics I couldn’t pick! The wind was helping fan the #hotgirl flames for sure lol. We finished the session with a champagne celebration and a sigh of relief because we were both nervous about the pop being just right. I woke up a few days later, snuck out of bed (trying not to wake Sanai), and sat at my computer editing because I was SO excited to get these into Zoë’s hands! I sent them off excited for the reply that I live for each time I deliver a session. “I love these!”  What touched me the most is that Zoë and I actually went to high school together. She was the captain of my softball team! It meant everything to get a chance to catch up and trade college stories between me saying “hold that pose!” Congrats, Zoë I hope you enjoy this season and wish you the best for all that is to come!

Finding the Joy

Welcome to my blog. I talk about choosing joy, to me, that means believing God is good and there is hope in the face of difficulty. I also talk about my goals and challenges. I believe in perseverance, grit, dreaming big, and choosing to challenge yourself to be better than yesterday. 

What does it mean to be a part of the #JoyJourney?


It means to choose JOY in the good and bad!
It means we focus on our goals!
It means we challenge ourselves to do better!
