Hey Girl!

I'm Grace

I'm here to provide you with beautiful images that will have you walking away with a renewed sense of confidence and self-love.

I'm going to be honest...
I hated high school

So i'm determined to help other girls have a different experience.

Throughout my time in high school, I struggled with insecurity and self-hatred. I never felt like I was enough. Compared to the lives other people presented on Instagram, I felt inadequate. I spent so much time scrolling through social media and feeding my depression that I lost the chance to create the wonderful memories that define high school. After I graduated, I finally realized that life is too short to spend it at war with yourself. I learned that I don’t owe anybody anything, and I’m the only person I need to be good enough for. 

The best part of photographing seniors is helping them reach that realization, too. I love seeing the way each of my girls transform between our first meeting and when they see their photos for the first time. My ultimate goal is connection and self-love. I want to be someone my seniors can reach out to and rely on, but more importantly, I want them to fall in love with the person they are becoming. I hope that they are each able to take that love into the next chapter of their lives and look back on their senior session with me as a positive and influential experience.
