I grew up in Chesapeake, Virginia where I fell in love with my very first pet, a cat named Tigger. He was my faithful sidekick from the age of 2.5 to 17. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and started my tv news career in Charleston, South Carolina. Charleston is probably my favorite city in the world. I moved to Raleigh, North Carolina in 2011 to further my news career. I left my job in 2016 to pursue pet photography. I love exploring the city with my pup Baxter, my loving husband and our two daughters.
I love: diet Coke, traveling to Europe, being outside when temperatures are above 65 degrees, the beach, Charleston, eating in Charleston, honoring family traditions, planting flowers, snuggling dogs, the sound of children's laughter, lobster bisque, pedicures, wine tastings, cheering on the Tar Heels and filling up our family photo albums with amazing memories.
I love home. I love the home I grew up in, in Virginia. I love always feelings at home walking around the UNC campus. I love pretending I am a Charleston native after living there for just five years. I take pride in the house my husband and I built (well okay, we didn't do the actual building part, but we had it built) and how we've created a safe, fun and loving place for our girls. Europe...it is a magical and wonderful place full of charm and amazing food! I studied abroad in Spain during college. My husband and I honeymooned in Florence and Rome. I most recently traveled to Barcelona for a pet photography workshop and retreat and spent time exploring France afterward in the spring of 2016.
