“Photography is an art of observation. It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”

-Elliot Erwitt 


I believe in real moments and chasing sunsets. I love the kind of images that can remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I love to observe the beauty in the world, and the people around me.

My love affair with photography started out when my mama bought me my first ever film camera back in middle school. I loved being in the darkroom and feeling the anticipation and joy that film revealing brings about. I ventured out into digital photography and while most of my sessions are photographed digitally, my heart is equally in love with both mediums.

Whenever I pick up my camera I strive, to create beautiful and emotional images that tell a story and showcase the beauty of both people and the world around them.

My love for photography has brought me around the beaches to the cities of Southern Florida. Regardless of where your story takes me I will always be a Florida girl at heart.

Your life, your story are beautiful and I can't wait to create images to show that!

Patty Really made us feel like she cared about capturing our day! You can just tell when someone loves her job! Patty was super professional, flexible when I needed her to stay longer on short notice. And really took the time to get to know me and my husband. She captured our wedding day perfectly and gave us photos that are irreplaceable. I recommend her to anyone I know!
