Hi! I'm Vanessa!

I was born in Louisville, KY, but I wasn't raised there. I've lived all over the country from Alaska to Florida, but home is wherever my husband is. My husband is currently an active duty Marine and we're stationed at Beaufort, SC at MCRD Parris Island.

I'm married to my husband, Mathew, whom I met off of Halo 2. We've been together for over 10 years, but married for 8 of them. We don't have any human children, but we do have 1 fur child, our chihuahua, Cosmo. He's the bees knees and the love of my life, sans my husband of course.

I love pepperoni pizza, coca cola, the color purple, watching movies and TV shows on the Amazon Firestick, listening to music, working on a client's session, and spending time with my husband and dog. They make my heart happy.

I hate milk, waking up early, bugs, humidity, the cold, washing dishes, and doing the laundry --- but when I'm mad, I clean. Go figure, right? ;)

I take images from a photojournalistic perspective, I like to capture the moments as they happen. I love seeing the emotions between people evoked in my images. It gives me a warm feeling in my tummy. I can also do posed shots too, but my work thrives best with unposed images. Sessions take place on location, normally outdoors, but can be indoors or in your own home if needed.

I shoot all sessions with a Canon 5D Mark III (also have a Canon 5D Mark II as a back up camera) & 50mm 1.4 & 85mm 1.8 lenses. I shoot with a 70-300mm 4-5.6 lens as needed for events. But will also rent additional equipment as needed.
