“I am and always will be the optimist, the hoper of far-flung hopes and the dreamer of improblable dreams.”

Whose that bubbly, energetic, talks so fast she could be a Gilmore Girl over there? oh that's me! I love all things nerdy (we're talking all things super hero/scifi) can quote every episode of How I Met Your Mother & Gossip Girl. I have a passion for travel that stems from growing up in a military family and moving very often. I have lived in 8 states and traveled to over 30! I love a bright lipstick, being outdoors if it's under 80 degrees, and hanging out in the water at my families lake house.

I am extremely passionate about music, and play the piano. Song lyrics hit me deep and I often find myself tearing up (okay bawling to a lot of songs). I can remember almost every song lyric, and one day want to play "Name That Song" from the React youtube channel to test out my skills! Every car ride is my own personal karaoke session and I love listening to music during photo shoots!
I found my joy in capturing high school & college seniors, engagements and weddings! I love working with any couple, no matter their faith. I believe above all else that love is love, no matter who you are loving. I love making a fool out of my self for my couples, so they feel comfortable & those laughing photos are truly genuine!

My traveling bucket list!

Andrey and I were married in 2015, and we just welcomed our sweet girl, Amelia, in February 2017. 

We live out in the middle of nowhere and but love the city. You'll find me in Raleigh (okay at Target or Starbucks) at least 3 days a week. 

We are also a bi-lingual family speaking English & Russian! Andrey moved from Russia to the US when he was 10 with his family!
