Hello, this is me! I am so happy you are here. I started my photography journey in 2006 when my parents gifted me my first camera/camcorder. I took pictures of everything and started playing with different editing software. It amazes me how young we can start to find interests we are passionate about, but here I am. In 2015 I saved my money up to purchase my first DSLR. From there I started taking pictures of friends and family, and people started noticing and wanted to book me. I invested in education and mentorships with some of the top photographers in the area and opened my business in 2020.
I attended Virginia Tech where I studied Agricultural Sciences, but I am a believer of lifelong education, and thus you may find that I love trying new things, photography included. So do not be afraid to throw your wild ideas at me! I have always had a creative side from musical interests to arts and crafts. I even wrote and illustrated a children's book. My husband and I married in 2019 and gave birth to our daughter in 2022. Now I have the perfect little model!
So why HER Image? Before I married, my initials were HER. It was always a fun piece to share about me growing up. When it came to naming my business, I wanted to think of a creative way to incorporate my name as a play on words. My work is literally and figuratively through her image. I also wanted to leave it open to move beyond the typical photography business to offer additional services in the future.
