Hello beautiful, my name is Hope, and I am a twenty-something year old finding a new passion, and purpose through photography.

When I was little my mom, and my grandmother always had to take photos of every single event. Birthday parties, Christmas gatherings, new boyfriends(which was a little embarrassing when you're 16 or 17 years of old), drivers permit, etc. You name it, there was someone there with a camera in hand. Looking back at those memories now, they make me feel something. I can remember the day it was taken, or the emotions I felt that day, and I am forever grateful for those images, and for my mom, and grandma keeping those memories for us.

For the first half of my twenties I've experimented, and tried all types of photography, but this is what sets my heart on fire,


 
 

I'm a Jesus, Sweet Tea Loving, Book Worm, who has big dreams, and has no plans of stopping.

Meet Hope

Behind The Lens

She Loves This, Not That.

Serving others, and helping them create memories that will last a lifetime. 

There is just something so rewarding about working hard, following a vision God gave you, and building something that is bigger than yourself. Something that will leave a legacy, and continue serving others for years to come. 

Well, enough about me, and how this all got started let's get to the fun stuff!

Behind the Lens.........................

Give me a comfy, over-sized sweater, leggings, and combat boots, and I am one happy girl in the fall and winter time. 

P.S.-- I don't like winter at all, I just love the fashion. 

Give me fairy lights all day, everyday!

I am a tea person for sure! Give me sweet tea, Herbal Tea, etc. I'm just addicted to my tea. 

I'm a Converse girl. What can I say?

I have loved Chuck Taylor's ever since high-school when I got my very first black & pink pair. 

It's all in the details..........

Scroll over each image to see more. 

I love visiting arbitrariums (aka green-houses, etc.) 

They are some of my favorite places to shoot at, and just visit. I get a love of plants from my grandma.

I have always had a love for reading. 

Finding time to read is another story.............

I've grown up around mountains my whole life, so I have a natural love for them.  

You may not get to see him very much, but this is my little baby, Rascal. 

He's very camera shy, and doesn't like to be photographed much. This is when we first rescued him from the streets. He was so happy to have a home.

She Loves It...........She Loves It Not............

I love Sunday mornings, spent wrapped in cozy, over-sized sweaters, and in peace & quiet.

I love buying make-up, and other beauty products. 

Give me a good bath bomb, or fizzer any day of the week!

I can only tolerate 1 day of snow after that I start to go a little stir crazy. 

Travel is on my heart constantly. One of my dreams is to shoot destination weddings all over the world. 

Especially somewhere tropical, I cannot stay away from the ocean. The ocean has captured my heart.
