It's a Family Business
Lead Photographer/Bird Prime
I began taking pictures on a film camera in high school and my love of photography only grew after I graduated, and discovered digital photography. I took a few classes in college, but am primarily self-taught. My style focuses on authenticity, and bold, colorful, and crisp images.
When I'm not taking photos -- I'm at home spending time with my family, cooking some new dish for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or in most cases all three! I love to travel, in fact we came up with the idea to start a business together on a cross country road trip in 2014! I'm also a movie fanatic and have a whole wall of movies in my house, and a few too many boxes of VHS as well.
Studio Manager/Executive Bird
I have always been active and organized, so why not make it a career! I started helping Tim out with weddings way back in 2011 shortly before we got married. Once things got more serious in 2014/2015 I took on the role of assistant, and then finally landed as the Studio Manager & designer of our wedding albums.
Outside of work, I pursue my passions of theater & dance both on stage, and behind the scenes. I love planning trips with my family, and listening to music like the sublime sounds of Julee Cruise.
