I get asked all the time, "What helps you with your editing process?" or "How do you get that airy touch to your photos?".
The answer is quite simple y'all! Throughout the years of my photography career, I was always trying to figure out my style in editing and photo capturing.

Y'all I'm layin’ it down! Here’s a guide to Off-Camera flash, because I get that sometimes it’s super tricky.
When using your DSLR flash camera in low light, it can be tempting to use the on-camera flash. But if you have, you’ve seen the ghastly results: a washed-out subject with harsh shadows and it’s just not the best.
The best way to fix this is with an off-camera flash.
Ya'll ! I am so excited to share these travel photos with you! I recently went to Europe to speak about branding at my friend Christene Chang's Wedding Photogrpahy workshop in London.

The excitement of the holidays are long behind us and those goals we made resolutions to keep all year long may already be taking a hit.

Good morning! Have you rolled over, hit the snooze button a few times but are still reluctant to pull yourself out of bed and now you’ve probably already started scrolling through Instagram.

If you’ve ever wondered (...)
It was a summer day in Hayden, Alabama the year was 1992. I stepped off the school bus to see my childhood home up in flames.

I wish I had photos like this (...)
