I am based in a dream town.. Bend Oregon. Mountain biking, boarding, rivers + lakes. Take me to a waterfall or epic mountain & I will most likely try to convince you to pack up & move right there with me! 
A few things to know about me.. I seriously thrive off of sunshine, coffee, and anything that gets me outside and movin! I love traveling (but who doesn't..) and getting to capture some epic people in some epic places.

Based out of good ole Alabama! Meeting new people is my favorite pass time. I can recite every Lil Wayne song, eat way too much Chipotle, and makes “that’s what she said” jokes every chance I get. Photography is all about making connections and experiencing the most important moments in people’s lives. I am truly blessed to get to do this as my career and spread a little love around. Let’s be friends!


The experience that I had at the Live Rooted retreat was unreal! Dan and Morgan literally thought of everything! This retreat was so much more than just a portfolio building workshop... Yes the styling for the workshop was PERFECTION but I learned so much on the back end of my business that I never thought I would learn from a workshop! I can’t praise these girls enough or putting together one of the best experiences I’ve had in the photography industry!

Going into this retreat, I can’t lie - I was a little nervous. This was my first retreat, my first flight, my first major step in growing my photography business. When I say I was welcomed from the very beginning and felt at home with everyone, I seriously mean it. I made so many friendships that are so special to me how. Being surrounded by other creatives is so refreshing! The vendors, models, and photogs were all insane!! Seriously feels like a dream! I came back home with a completely new and exciting outlook on my business and where it could go. I learned so much during this retreat and got so much dang good content that has been exactly what my page needed to attract the clients I hope to have for my business!! Morg and Dan were there offering tips and tricks the whole time - from shooting and posing to business advice I didn’t even know I needed! I seriously can’t thank them enough!!!! If I could go back and do it again, I would in a heartbeat. But since I can’t, you can just catch me at @liverooted’s next retreat and everyone after that

I had THE best time at the LiveRooted retreat! It was truly one of the BEST things I’ve ever done for my business! The styled shoots were UNREAL. I got the most amazing content that will help push me to reach more out of state clients! The lessons were some of my favorite parts. I’m kind of a nerd and I LOVE LOVE LOVE learning new stuff!! I took a ton of notes and the second I got home I have been working nonstop to implement them. Morgan and Dan... I cannot say enough. I have never felt so comfortable to ask ANYTHING I wanted to know. They don’t judge you at all. They’re so silly and goofy and it really brought out everyone’s childlike vibes and brought us all a lot closer together. I felt totally free to be myself and to learn and grow. I made lifelong friendships and actually teared when I got home because I miss everyone SO much. I have already seen huge success in my business and it’s been less than a week!! I honestly don’t even know where to end this review because I could talk about it for YEARS.

This experience for me was probably one of the best things to have ever happened to me as a photographer but also as a person who struggles with trying to “be better”. I constantly have to have reassurance that what I’m doing in this word is the path God intended for me and by going on this retreat and meeting the people that I did and doing a job that I love to do, was absolute reassurance for me. This not only made me a little bit more confident but it overflowed my cup tremendously. I couldn’t be more grateful to have had this opportunity offered to me by Dan and Morgan. They are truly two amazing people with the biggest hearts willing to anything and everything for you. I’m thankful for them for bringing all of us together and being able to walk away with formed friendships in a community that tries to tear you apart. It’s so rewarding having people lift you up and praise you even when you’re the most hard on yourself. God has truly outdone his blessings. Can’t wait to see what the future holds.

My experience with Live Rooted was phenomenal. Morgan & Dan definitely know what they are doing. The fact that this was the first workshop they hosted was insane. You would have never known. I arrived in Arizona not expecting to come back home with so much info, motivation, and friendships from all over. Every person there I clicked with. The shoots were absolutely beautiful. They did a great job finding models and vendors for this. And locations?? Wow!!
