Meet The Photographer

      Hi! I’m Autumn. The girl behind the camera.  I’m a mother, mountain climber, ocean lover, avid pug lover, adventure seeker and coffee enthusiast, photographer, and chaser of dreams.

     Around 10 years ago I met a sailor that stole my heart and we have been married for 4 1/2 years. Our love created an adorable little curly headed cutie named Max. We also adopted two fur babies, our pugs Reya & Gibson.

     I have a degree in American Sign Language and background in early childhood education. I worked with children and families for over eight years. Photographing families and children are definitely one of my favorites. I love making meaningful connections with families, singing baby shark and making children giggle throughout our sessions. 

     The military lifestyle has kept us well traveled which fed my love for being outdoors and photography. I have now lived in five different states starting with New Jersey, Florida, California, Washington, and now currently in beautiful Virginia Beach.

      My wonderful husband gifted me my very first camera four years ago and I have been capturing treasured moments ever since. Something that originally started off as a hobby quickly turned into another love of my life. It makes me overjoyed when my clients get just as excited about their sessions and seeing their photos as me. I feel truly blessed to do what I love everyday and meet some amazing people along the way.

      Taking photos allowed me to freeze those first intimate moments I forever could look back on. I am now pursuing this love of mine, telling your story through my lens. Capturing images for your next event or milestone that you can cherish for generations. If you are interested in my work, I'd love to connect with you!
