This is a space you can feel comfortable in...

During your session you will be provided with gentle guidance and prompts which will allow the natural unfolding of genuine interactions. I aim to create a space where you feel comfortable being yourselves. Whether it's offering a subtle nudge for a perfect pose or simply stepping back to let natural moments take the place. The goal is to capture the realness of your story. It's not just about striking poses; it's about curating an environment where your unique personalities come to life  through your photographs.

Tess did an amazing job with our wedding photos! We love how friendly and understanding she is. Very easy to get along with and does an amazing job behind the camera. She saw our vision and made it her own with hitting everything we were looking for in a photographer.

My story behind twelve9.

One of the questions I'm often asked is, "What does Twelve9 stand for?" The answer lies in my favorite bible verse, Romans 12:9. In fact, the entire 12th chapter of Romans speaks to my heart. At its core, Romans 12:9 calls us to love others deeply, hate what is evil, and cling to what is good.

I firmly believe that loving others and clinging to the good are some of the most important things we can do in life. This can take many different forms depending on our individual gifts and love languages.

For me, serving others is my passion, especially through mission work. Traveling to new places, experiencing different cultures, and spreading love through hard work and dedication is what fuels my passion for photography. Every session I capture helps fund mission trips that allow me to give back in truly meaningful ways.

So, when you choose me as your photographer, you're not just investing in beautiful photos of you and your loved ones. you're also helping me serve others, and for that, I'm eternally grateful.

Have somewhere else in mind?

I'm in love with planning adventures. Everytime a trip ends, I have to plan something to look forward to next!

I am very organized, unless it's with doing the laundry. That is just a chaotic mess in my house.

I have a t-shirt that says "Somewhere between Proverbs 31 and 90's rap" and it couldn't be more true for my life.

These are a few of my favorite things

Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.  - Aaron Siskind -
