Hey yall!! I'm Abby and I'm so excited you're here!
I'm a mom, wife, photographer, and believer. I dream ridiculously big dreams and you can always count on me to be your number one hype girl for anything ever! Years ago I never would have imagined that life could look as JOYFUL as it does now, but here I am living in the middle of what fairy tails are made of.
Making my clients feel loved and special has always been my priority. When we work together, you're not just hiring a photographer - you're working with someone that's dedicated to making this your very best portrait experience ever!
Aside from photography - I'm also an iced chai lover, fitness enthusiast, skincare fanatic, and advocate for creating a life you love. I'm married to my best friend in the entire world. He gifted me my first camera and he's been my biggest supporter no matter what star I'm reaching for. I am momma to two beautiful children with bright blue eyes and smiles that will melt your heart. We sometimes feel like our life is a circus, but it's literally the life that I prayed for and we wouldn't have it any other way.
The most important thing you should know about me is that I have a tendency to surprise myself, hence how this business transitioned from a small dream to a beautiful reality.
With a $500 camera and big dreams of wanting more, I left my 9-5 and began building a small business in our rural town near the Chesapeake Bay. I started out a little unsure of the path of entrepreneurship, but am now booking upwards of 12 months in advance for portrait sessions, working with couples across the state, and am one of the most sought after senior portrait photographers in the area.
Looking back fifteen years ago, I never would have guessed that life would look this sweet, yet here I am on the other side praising God that I followed the call laid on my heart. I've never been more joyful than I am now in this season of our life and I bring that joy, inspiration, and heart to serve with everything that I do for my clients.
heart to hearts, warm coffee, long emails, and daring to believe you can have everything you've ever dreamed of.
hard work, responses with lots of exclamation marks, and letting go of the clutter to make room for what really matters.
googling sunset times for my clients, laughing with my husband, playing with our kids, and reading any book that's business related.
Bible, coffee, a good workout, fresh curls, and my favorite mascara.

My Favorite Things
Getting things done. I'm an enneagram 3 and I thrive off of being productive, completing my to do list, and finishing big projects!
my happy place!
Exercising & taking care of my body. I'm better for my clients, my family, and myself when I'm feeling my best!
My family! They are everything I've ever dreamed of, everything I prayed for, and I'm obsessed with the life we've built.
My Favorite Things
Sunshine. I love a bright, clean look and a golden glow. You can count on me to always be chasing the light when we work together for your portraits!
my guilty pleasure
Cake. But not like fancy cake - more like birthday cake you buy from the grocery store.
Reading. I used to hate reading, but now I love anything business or life experience related.
Where I stand on the super important stuff... Agree / disagree?
let's work together
When strangers turn into clients and clients turn into great friends. When a flood of confidence comes over you in front of the camera for the first time. When you realize that an image could really make you relive that moment in time all over again.
