Hello, I'm Colleen!

Ever since I was a little girl, I always loved seeing the patterns on the ground from the sunlight leaking through the trees or to observe how the sunlight reflects off different things and the shadows they make. I find great joy in capturing the beauty of the world around us and most of all getting to know you and showing your individuality through my portraits. My hope is to spread the joy I feel from my profession to you through your unique and personal images.

I studied commercial and portrait photography for four years in the beautiful mountains in North Carolina in the quaint college town of Boone. After graduating from Appalachian State University I have enjoyed photographing graduating seniors, beautiful families, the love stories of recently engaged couples, their special weddings, and getting to know other creatives in the Triangle area of North Carolina.

I was recently married and enjoy living in the Wake Forest area with my husband Ryan and our three dogs! When I'm not photographing, you can find me hiking through the trees, running around with the dogs, or sipping a chilled glass of Pinot Grigio on the back porch with a good book.

Enough about me; let's hear more about YOU! Head on over to my contact page to answer a few questions and I will be in touch with you shortly. I look forward to hearing from you!

xoxo, Colleen
