Born in Michigan, 1975

Studied at the Art Institute of Atlanta

I fell in love with photography when I took a class in high school and experienced developing film and printing my images for the first time. I continued studying photography at the Art Institute of Atlanta, learning about alternative processes like cyanotype and polaroid and emulsion transfers. At the Art Institute, I earned the Best Portfolio Award for the Commercial Photography Diploma program.


I have been married for 26 years and have two daughters in college as well as a hilarious miniature poodle named Charlie. Both my spiritual gift and love language is acts of service, so the way I show love to others is by doing things for them. My Myers-Briggs is INFJ which means I have a strong desire to make the world a better place. I love God and the way I see Him in the beauty He created. I also love running, coffee, gardening, the beach, Harry Potter, and Lord of the Rings. I practice looking at things in a different way, discovering beauty and magic in the ordinary.




 Lydia just showed the [pictures you took] to me tonight and they are so beautiful! Thank you for taking pictures of my daughter over the years.  We are thankful for the memories." ~ Tessa

"Thank you so much for all your fabulous photos over the last 4 years. You've been such a blessing to so many of us who didn't share your gift. It's been great getting to know you and your family. Love, Mandy"

"Jonathan kept saying what a good time he had and how fun it was taking pics with you because you were excited about it, too!" ~ Julie



Hunter and I are blown away by the pictures that you took and literally gave me chills going through them today.


I am so grateful you did this artisan photography for our family to capture this precious moment in Hunter’s life and her accomplishments to date.

Thank you for bringing Hunter’s unique and challenging vision to life. You did so much scouting and detective work to find a place during a time period (2020) that had more challenges that climbing Mount Everest in an avalanche. You found such unique places to capture her vision. ~ Kriston
