I’ve learned to never give up on my dreams or myself.

Hey! I'm Lee, a cheesecake loving, outdoor enthusiast who is hooked on tiny house designs. Most people know me because I am a realist who educates and inspires others through sharing my life story as a SPS - single-parent survivalist.

Instead, I am creative because it is 110% okay to change directions, as long as I am continuing to follow my compass with faith. I am writing my own story and one day, I may even publish a best-selling novel about my adventures. :)

I enjoy spending time admiring beautiful landscapes or playing on the beach. If you can't find me there though, I'm sure it's because I am behind the camera, in my happy place. I have been a portrait & wedding photographer for over 20 years and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE every minute of serving our clients with images that will last a lifetime. My goal in life is to leave a legacy of photographs for many generations to share...just like my grandmother did!!!

I have fallen in love with photography over and over again for the past 17 years.

I’m a sweet tea sippin’, chick-fil-a lovin, young entrepreneur with a passion for capturing the effortless laughs, raw emotions, and true love behind the view of my lens. I cherish the simple things in life from coffee dates with my friends to baking sweet treats with my Memaw! I’m slightly obsessed with the show Bones and of course my Jeep “Betsy”.

I love being creative with our clients and becoming apart of their extended family. I could not imagine my life without a camera in my hand. To me the smallest of details can mean the most!

If I had to sum up my life as a photographer it would read...
​“My life is shaped by the urgent need to wander and observe, and my camera is my passport.”

- Steve McCurry

Place to Travel - My favorite place is Maine! I’ve traveled across the US, west to Las Vegas, and through the seas to Jamaica. In 2019 we both went on our 1st mission trip to Dominican Republic.
My Favorite Things - Tiny houses and anything outdoors!
My Quirks - I tend to think really far out of the box. Actually it’s more like a hamster wheel for me. I can’t be confined - it’s about moving forward and keeping a consistent pace.
What Makes Me, Me - I’ve been a single mom for a long time, so I love to use the phrase I’m a SPS - single parent survivalist. I share my story to inspire women to work on their dreams by focusing on what matters the most, until they reach them. When there is only one parent there is never an option to give up...EVER.

Place to Travel - I've traveled all over, but a few of my favorites include Colorado, Maine, and any place that has a beach with sea glass.
My Quirks - Wedding details are my absolute favorite, and they have to be the 1st thing I photograph at every wedding. 
My Favorite Things - Elephants, succulents, sweet tea, and mason jars.
What Makes Our Team so great - We compliment each other well, and we are best friends too. We are always there to support each other and we know what each other is thinking or getting ready to do before it’s said or done.
