Hey there. Thank you so much for stopping by to get to know the lady behind the lens. I am so grateful that your journey has allowed you to cross paths with mine. I am a total adventure bug, and like every plant out there I need a little H2O and sunshine. I am guided by God as I follow the wind. I love to travel, and I don't mind getting a little dirt under my fingernails. I dig backpacking and rock climbing, and I also love to play music and dance. I have worked with kiddos since I was eleven, and I have also spent a great deal of time working with high behavior kiddos in foster care, as well as individuals with disabilities. I also have a dog, and she is so sweet that my friends like her more than they like me. That's no joke.
I am enthralled by the ever-present hum of humanity. Human beings as a whole are capable of so much, but what I am interested in is our ability for raw, intense emotion. There are times in life where your soul is completely unguarded. Where everything else disappears and your true self exists in that moment. That is what I strive to capture at Summit + Co. Though we have plenty of experience photographing just about everything, I have found that those true emotions make an appearance during births, weddings, and in kiddos- especially kiddos with special needs. This is where my specialties lie, and where my fire is fueled. I love to travel, and I would love for Summit + Co. to come to you. We photograph world wide and have a very lengthy travel bucket list that we have been checking off. Raw emotion is all over the globe, and I hope to capture different forms of love from everywhere.
I believe we are all capable of absolutely anything, and I hope that whatever we achieve is a perfect dance between beauty and insanity.
I believe that we should all do whatever we can to better the world around us.
I believe that we should put others before ourselves.
I believe that if you litter, you need to check yourself.
I believe that anything can be healed with healthy love.
I would love to meet you and learn about your journey. Let's sit down for some hot cocoa, or let's go for a hike. I want to meet you where you're at, and I want to learn about who you are. You are important in this world, and your story is worthy of capturing.
Videographer | My better half | The funny one
This is my fella, Michael. He is pure kindness in human form. He has the most offensive sense of humor, so you get the best of both worlds when you work with us as a team. Michael is a North Carolina native, and he has touched just about every inch of that state. His faith runs deep, and his values are firm. Michael knows how to reason better than anyone I know, and his honesty is there at all times- whether you are ready for it or not. Michael is always prepared, and out of the two of us he will be the one to plan everything out. He is a night owl who loves video games, but more than anything, he loves his friends.
Michael is so authentically creative, and he has so much fun with his work. His eye is truly his own. He is attracted to moments that matter, and he always sees them. He always gets choked up on wedding days no matter how many weddings he has filmed. He can read people without knowing them, and because of that he can see what is important to you.
If I were to guess, I would say that Michael probably believes that popcorn and pretzels make a well rounded meal.
He probably believes that morning starts at 11:00 AM.
I know he believes that his purpose is to love and serve the Lord.
I know that he too believes in love and the incredible things that it can do for humanity.
Michael is an incredible asset to my company, and I would love for you to meet him. Feel free to reach out, connect, and get to know the man behind the camera.
