As an adolescence, my passion and path for creativity began with art, dance and a bewilderment for the surrounding mountains of Western NC. This soon developed into a love of photography. I found magic in the intermingle of composition, body form, color and light. I went on to pursue my AS Degree in Professional Digital Photography at the International Academy of Design and Technology- Tampa, FL. Followed by me moving back to Asheville, NC (along with some travel in between) and eventually starting my own business as HHphotography. Throughout my experience I have developed a love for photographing people. Whether it be a boudoir session, wedding, maternity shoot, etc. the uniqueness that each client brings is intriguing. I am honored to be let into others personal lives in such a intimate and what can feel like vulnerable position. Their courage and desire to share their story is what keeps me addicted to photography! I have always loved the short and sweet statement of "Free to Be." I feel like this embodies my vision of what I would like to promote with my work and connection of others. A safe space for self expression and to just be yourself.
I have been happy to call Asheville my home for the majority of my life and love being part of such a vibrant and supportive community. My studio is located in West Asheville, adjacent to my home, where you will likely be greeted at the door by my best pal Reggie :)
