Hi Y'all! Thank you for stopping by!

xoxo, B

Let me just say that my cupcake obsession is VERY REAL, with a specific cupcake lady...SERIOUSLY ~ NO JOKE! She even makes me gluten-free because I have Celiac Disease. SHE'S FANTASTIC, LOL! I'm at the age where I only go on vacation to find great food and peace. The beach is my most favorite place. I adore the beauty of the great outdoors; and the style and architecture of the city. But what I really love the most is my family; they are everything to me. I have 2 dogs act like the 2 dogs in the movie "Funny Farm" with Chevy Chase! 


My photography aspirations didn't come into play until I had my children but I always loved my little 110mm film camera when I was a kid! Fast forward to 2011, my oldest son started playing football, that's when my photography passion was stoked in. I established my business in 2018 and the rest is history in the making.  I love all photography, but I specialize in wedding & senior photography. It's just so magical to me.


A mom to two boys 23 & 17 - well one's grown technically and the other just thinks he is, a beautiful grandson - Eli - who is 5 years old and I do not get to see him near enough; an almost-mom to two more kids - an 18-year-old young lady (that never EVER stops talking...LOL) and 22-year-old! I love them all to pieces. My soulmate, Todd, and I have been together for 6 years! He definitely keeps me grounded, and I'm truly blessed to have him in my life ALWAYS believing in me and my crazy dreams.


If I had to describe myself I would say I'm just the right mix of city and country, beach lover, cupcake obsessed & all around foodie.
