behind the lens
Thank you for stopping by to find out who is behind the photos. My family and those who love me call me Hope. I have a sweet, thoughtful + immensely talented husband who owns a landscaping company – Rootstock Landscaping + Design (shameless plug). We got married in Savannah, Ga. The place where we spent 3 amazing years while I went to graduate school for photography (Savannah College of Art + Design). We currently reside in Maryland with our 3 amazing boys!
I’ve been an artist for most of my life and started off drawing and painting as a young girl. I attended Stevenson University where I received my BFA in Graphic Design. It was during these college years that I fell in love with photography in school. After graduating, I left home to attend the Savannah College of Art & Design in Savannah, GA to pursue another BFA in Fine Art Photography.
I consider myself a freelance photographer these days. While I have a few specialities in photography that I love most: food and portraits… I really do love to take on any and all clients. From photographing weddings, to a family with children running around the field, to revamping the look and feel of a clients website filled with my photos. I had the pleasure of designing, photographing and publishing a 250+ page cookbook for a client here in Baltimore in 2019. This gave me the opportunity to use my layout design skills coupled with my photographing. It was an awesome experience. In the past 16 years, I’ve shot over 200+ weddings since opening my doors in 2006 and have been featured in several National Wedding Publications around the world. My goal with all of my images is to bring out and capture the natural beauty, emotion and moment with anything that crosses my lens. I’d love to capture your moments in life, your spirit in your portraits and/or your uniqueness in your product or the mouth watering deliciousness in your food. I want to be your photographer. So get in touch and we’ll go from there!
