I am a wife and mom to two kids, one pup and a revolving door of foster pups. Jack 11 and Brooke 7 are listed in the Guiness Book of World Records as the most uncooperative kids to photograph on Earth.

I love to start my day with a cup (or three) of coffee and I take my energy and enthusiasm and slay each and every single day. My perfect day would end around our fire pit with friends and a cold cider beer.

I’ve been a professional photographer for 7 years. My photography captures the best little features of babies before they grow up. I strive to provide an excellent customer experience from start to finish.

I love true crime and organizing closets. You’ll have to ask my dad why my childhood nickname was Boomer, I genuinely don’t know.

I am a wife and mom to two beautiful kids, one girl and one boy.  Elliana 6 and Dixon 3 have been photographed by 11 Sixteen Photography all their lives and those photographs adorn our home in the Wyndham area. 

I grew up in Lynchburg, VA but have now lived in Richmond for 15 years. I love the faster pace, the booming small business industry, and of course, the food scene. 

I spent the first 12 years of my life here in Richmond in the corporate world, as a Project Manager putting my engineering degree to use, before quitting that life 3 1/2 years ago to stay home with my babies. I was looking for balance and a creative outlet when the opportunity to work as a studio manager for 11 Sixteen Photography came along. 

I love traveling, reading and gardening and I’m learning to paint in watercolor. I can solve a rubix cube and sort-of juggle. I have never once met another person that shares my name.
