believe in the UNIQUE and POTENTIAL BEAUTY of every moment whether created or discovered.
In April of 2009, my sister and parents came to visit and I hired a photographer friend to photograph our family. One month later my mother was diagnosed with primary peritoneal cancer, chased by a long hard battle she didn’t win. Those pictures are priceless to me and my family. We have so many images of us laughing, playing and smiling with mom—moments we will have for all time.
Everyone should have gorgeous images of themselves, their loved ones, their friends and the relationships they share…. it is so valuable. I can create these for you.
Why? Because you should exist beautifully in images so that one day when you are no longer around there will be a visual heirloom of you for your loved ones.
Each shoot gets me excited and keeps me inspired.
My photography career is driven by my need to create beautiful images. Plain and Simple. Fashionable teens, personal brands, boudoir.

This shoot made me feel so confident about myself! Ivy picked all the perfect locations and I felt like she had me pose and shoot in ways that capture my personality! She also pushed my comfort zone a little which may have been scary in the moment but I love the way they turned out!

Ivy's excitement while she was taking pictures was contagious! She had the whole session planned out ahead of time and knew just where she wanted each outfit to be photographed. She was very attentive to details, color, and light and knew all the best spots to shoot. I would recommend Ivy to anyone looking to get their picture taken! She made the day memorable, from start to finish!
