Hi friends! I'm so happy you're here! My name is McKenzie and I'm a lover of all things coffee, R&B, and dark chocolate.

A few years ago I definitely would've laughed if you had told me I'd be running my own full-time photography business. No really, because just a few years ago I was on the conventional college track, living in University campus dorms. Everything changed the day I made the decision to pursue my dream of starting my own photography business, instead of returning to campus in the fall, and I haven't looked back since.

I believe in flowers for no reason. I believe no text is complete without an emoji. I believe in kindness. I believe every outfit is best complimented with a baseball cap. I believe in failing, because that means at least you tried. I believe in having a piece of dark chocolate everyday. I believe car dance parties are a necessity. I believe in Jesus Christ. I believe in wearing Birkenstocks in public. I believe no room is complete without a candle. I believe love is a choice. I believe I wouldn't survive without music. I believe that ice cream really can cure any bad day. I believe in lazy days. I believe laughter is the best medicine!!!


Dreams of having my own photography business began for me at a young age. My love for photography began when I joined the Yearbook staff my freshman year, and my eyes were opened to the business side when I interned, and later worked for a professional photographer my Junior and Senior years of High School. I held onto these dreams into and throughout my time in college, and since forgoing school to fully pursue photography, my world has expanded and grown so much more than I could've ever imagined.

I care so much about people, and I'm passionate about utilizing natural light to capture pure joy, and freeze moments that embody a timeless and fine art feel. I am so thankful I get to call what was once a dream, my reality. There's nothing I'd rather be doing than loving and serving my clients through what I love doing most!

If you think we'd be a good match head on over to my inquire page! I can't wait to chat more!!
