Just in case you were wondering.

It’s so awesome to meet you!

I am so stoked you have found your way here. I really love meeting and connecting with new people. I started photography about four years ago. I picked it up as a hobby and began working as a fashion photographer/social media manager. From there I began my journey in lifestyle photography- which I love. I immediately jumped into weddings, engagements, families, couples, and everything in between.

I always say that I didn't choose photography but that it chose me. God gave me this talent and opportunity long before I would was able to understand its purpose in my life. Every single day I fall more in love with it. Every single day I grow, learn, and get better. Every single day His purpose becomes more clear.

What I love most about what I do is the connectivity. I am so blessed with the relationships that this passion has given me. On top of that, I get to take my clients’ visions and turn them into reality. That’s pretty rad! I get to create, explore, meet people, and learn so much every day.

My style:

My goal is to create an atmosphere that creates stunning, real, emotional photos. Yes, I will set up poses and get some super detailed shots, BUT I will also tell horrible jokes and ask you to whisper you favorite vegetables in a sexy voice into your boyfriend’s ear. My style, above all else, is ORGANIC.

I want to entice real moments. Real laughter. Real tears. Real joy. That is my goal. I understand how awkward these things can be. My goal is to make you feel like you can kiss, snuggle, laugh, run, and play in front of my lens fearlessly.

I edit with moody, earthy, warm tones. I want my pictures to have a edge. I want them to invoke that organic, raw feeling.

A little more about me…

I am an adventurer. Any session that takes me into the unknown, a mountaintop, the middle of the woods, or in a new city is my favorite kind. I love to go to places I have never been and create memories with friends. I love to hike. I am most likely to turn up to a session in jeans, boots, and a hoodie. I have a thing for jackets and cups-you just can’t have too many.

The mountains are my home-they speak to my soul.

I prefer cool weather. I have and English degree. I am a book lover and a grammar freak. I am currently obtaining my master’s in Publishing. I have the most amazing, supportive, and handsome husband in the world. You will probably meet him because he is so involved and supportive of this business we’ve created. Our 1 year old son, Silas, is the greatest thing in the world. He is incredibly smart, funny, loving, and sassy-just like his Mama. My boys are my sidekicks, never straying too far. We are all so extremely connecting and always want to be with each other. My favorite days are any days when I have them both with me.

Tattoos and coffee are my thing.


I am an open book. I love to laugh and do anything I can to make people feel comfortable and relaxed. I genuinely care about my clients and their lives. I think understanding people helps you capture them in a way that is tailored to who they are- that’s important to me.

I will go above and beyond to make a session spectacular. I think if there is one thing for certain I know my clients would say about me is that I am passionate. I really get involved in my sessions and as I always say “nerd out.” That is because I seriously get so excited while I work to see our vision come together.

My favorite session are couples sessions.

I absolute love couples! Getting out at a stunning location with a couple and creating amazing, edgy, real-life, stuff just fills my cup.

I am always down for outside-of-the-box sessions.

Really, the weirder the better.

Thank you so much for sticking around to get to know me a bit. I hope I have the honor to learn more about you in return.

xx

Charla
