I've also had the opportunity to learn and shoot with past and previous mentors Byron Phillips, Chip Dizard, and Trene Forbes through my journey.

My first wedding film was featured in Munaluchi Bridal Magazine under my mentor Chip Dizard in 2017. I graduated Oakwood University in Huntsville, AL with a B.S. in General Studies with a concentration in Elementary Education. I have a passion for learning and the gift of teaching.

I know what it takes to create high-quality photos and videos especially for beginners and how to start following your dreams. I can’t wait to share my knowledge and experiences with you that I've learned over the years.

Education for Beginners

My Workshops & Photowalks

***Workshops are 50% retainer to book and the rest is due 1 week before Workshop date. Photowalks are 100% due in full up front! No Refunds and Cannot be transferred. If you are not able to make it. You can Sell your Ticket and Notify me no later than 1 week before your shoot of the new attendee. No exceptions.

With my background in Elementary Education, I decided to make my workshops hands on and visually stimulating. I hate sitting hours in a classroom soaking in information. Instead we limit that classroom setting to hands on experiences that keep your brain and interest moving. We could be shooting a live model, setting up lights, or walking to find locations. I love to stay moving. If we are in the classroom, we'll be editing images from the day on your own laptop. images.
