Meet the Bliss Team
First, I am a proud mother.
Becoming a mom has allowed my heart to grow into what it is today. My son, Carson, has taught me how to love bigger and laugh harder; I am a better version of myself because of him.
And this amazing career would have never begun if it weren’t for him. What started as lifestyle photographs and yearly birthday portrait sessions has turned into a full time career that allows me to capture real love and be a stay at home mom all in one!
I had always been creative; painting, drawing, and working with ceramic. Those things are fun but when I first picked up a camera I felt an instant connection and understanding to capturing light and document true emotion. I will never forget the first wedding I photographed in 2012 and how it filled my heart with joy. I fell in love with photographing love stories and bringing that joy into the hearts of my couples and their families.
I am so very thankful that I have such a positive career, and that I can capture one of the happiest times of my couples lives.
I’m a twenty-something Columbus native and recent college graduate who accidentally discovered my love for photography. After finishing my degrees in communication and design, I jumped into the “9 to 5” world. While I loved the regular schedule and consistent paycheck, I hated the actual work that I was doing. It wasn’t fulfilling, and quite frankly I was bored.
One day while working my desk job, I stumbled upon this quote: “Build your own dreams, or else someone will hire you to help them build theirs.” I think it was that moment that I knew I wasn’t going to make it as a “9 to 5” girl. I wasn’t prepared to spend the rest of my life compromising my dreams to slave for someone else’s.
Although I never expected to be a photographer, I consider myself to be incredibly lucky to be living out my dream every single day. The craziness of this job drives me, the challenges encourage me, and the rewards of this job sustain me.
I am a Buckeye football fanatic, self-proclaimed chef, major foodie, travel enthusiast, horseback rider, math nerd, rescue dog mom and a lover of autumn. I can’t wait to meet you!
