WHERE ARE YOU FROM?

I am was born in Winston Salem, North Carolina but I have lived most of my life in Tennessee so that is where I consider myself from originally.

WHY PHOTOGRAPHY?

I love designing and making the world around me more esthetically pleasing. One way to do this is through photos. Photography is not only a creative outlet for me, but it is also a way to meet a lot of fun people and be able to make them feel beautiful and empowered.

HOW DID YOU AND JONATHAN MEET?

We met in college in Eugene Oregon! I was a freshman and he was a senior and he sort of just wouldn't leave me alone until I said yes to dating him.

IF YOU HAD TO BUY A ONE-WAY TICKET TO ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, WHERE WOULD IT BE?

Definitely Greece. It is so magical with the rolling green hills, clear blue seas, good food, and friendly people. Jonathan and I have definitely talked about retiring there when we are old.

WHAT IS YOUR ONE FEAR?

If I had to choose one thing it would be looking back at the end of my life and having a list of things I wish I would have done or places I wish I would have seen and having run out of time to check them off.

WHAT IS YOUR GUILTY PLEASURE?

It is a tie between sour patch kids and mac and cheese.

WHEN DO YOU AND JONATHAN WANT KIDS?

We definitely want kids someday but we are focusing on our individual careers and goals at this time. We have discussed having 3-4 kids when the time is right.

WHO INSPIRES YOU?

Basically any gal who can get her business off the ground and be successful at being her own boss while doing what she loves is my inspiration. It shows a lot of drive, creativity, and self-motivation.

WHAT DOES NOVA DO WHEN YOU BOTH ARE TRAVELING INTERNATIONALLY?

We always wish that we could take her with us but she usually ends up staying with friends or family. I demand video and picture updates of our baby every day.
