Welcome to my blog! I'm thrilled to be able to share with you my favorite images from weddings, engagements, maternity, and more! Grab a cup of coffee and get snuggly cuz this blog will give you all the feels!
This new adventure in my business has been a year in the making. Remember about this time in 2013 I had just come back from Mystic Seminars and I was lamenting on all sorts of things? After a lot of soul searching, moving, and crazy road blocks I finally managed to sort through everything and create a vision. Through out the year, I’ve given you little teasers of special shoots that I’ve done. I’ve created a fan page, a logo, and now FINALLY a website!
Simply Beautiful Couture is a website dedicated to women and their stories! I want to celebrate women in all walks of life. I honestly believe that if we all had more pictures of ourselves that displayed our true beauty (and not what we see in the mirror every day) that problems we face on a daily basis wouldn’t be as difficult. Hurt and brokenness would start to heal, we would grow closer to our family & friends, and we finally be the world changers we were meant to be.
Simply Beautiful Couture is a business, but it’s also a ministry. I want to share stories of struggle & victory. I want women who have never been told that they’re beautiful to have a day of abundant love. I want all of us to feel Simply Beautiful! I hope you join me in this journey of beauty, healing, & love!

The wonderful thing about Simply Beautiful Couture is that I’m encountering women with all sorts of stories and reasons to book a session. Take my friend Emily for instance. Since I’ve met her, she’s gotten married, taken up photography, and started her own business! She is a strong vibrate woman who is one of my closest friends.
I remember when she made the decision to leave Syraucse, NY and go to school in Binghamton. She was determined to only be there a semester or two before she planned on moving to Italy to study art. We were all sad to see her go, but Bingtown was only an hour away. Little did we know that her decision would absolutely transform her life. With in a month or two of moving she met her future husband who is the perfect fit. He encouraged her to take up photography and start her own business! Fast forward about a year and a half later, she’s got a banging wedding portfolio and was my driving buddy for the move to North Carolina! It’s so amazing how quickly things can change.
Emily is thriving in her new life! She confided in me that due to the craziness on her wedding day that she didn’t get to spend the time she wanted on photos. So in celebration, we opted to do a Rock the Dress shoot here at my new home. I love spending time with Em, we’re definitely birds of a feather, and her session was an absolute riot!
Her story is mirrored in my own. Things can change quickly, but change shouldn’t be feared. It should be looked upon as a new adventure full of fantastic surprises!

Mother’s Day is around the corner! I’m so excited to travel back up to NY and see my beautiful mother and spend some time with her. You see, a year ago around this time, our family went through something pretty traumatic. My mother had been diagnosed with breast cancer and went through a double mastectomy. Now she’ll probably frown and give me the evil eye for telling you all of this, but her story is one of silent courage. I hope to one day tell you her full story, but for now know that her bravery in the face of this behemoth really helped shape my decision to start Simply Beautiful Couture! She is absolutely stunning and all mothers should be remembered that way. Now, I haven’t done a SBC session with her yet, but I have my fingers crossed that she’ll allow me to do one! But, if you feel that YOUR mother deserves to be cherished, treasured, and have a once in a lifetime experience that will make her feel like the gorgeous woman she is, then I implore you to have her picture PROFESSIONALLY taken! Even if it’s not with me! We can never have enough pictures OF or WITH our family members. They are oh so precious.
So as you ponder what to do for Mother’s Day, think about the importance of capturing her beauty forever. Please consider Simply Beautiful Couture. Thank you.
Over the past few months, I’ve been struck by the women in my life. There have been so many with amazing stories. I’m sure you have heard by now, but I’ve decided to launch a new branch of my business, Simply Beautiful Couture! I want to be able to tell these women’s stories and convey their true beauty! The more I delve into this world of stories and beauty, the more I discover what the world deems as “beautiful” is backwards. People are not solely beautiful because of how they look, their beauty is found in their actions, emotions, and personalities. People, women especially, need to see that physical representation of their true selves. I humbly hope that I can capture that and give them something that will not only be beautiful, but they will connect with on a level that will motivate and heal!
Simply Beautiful Couture is available to all women with all sorts of stories. Meet Gina and Tirzah! They are best friends and have been since school. They share in every part of each others lives. Tirzah is getting married this summer and starting a new chapter. They decided to have a best friend shoot done to celebrate their friendship! I think every set of best friends should do this! It was so fun laughing and dancing with these girls! They even helped me out with my first video idea for SBC! Enjoy their story!
