Oh hello!

I'm Megan.


I'm a follower of Jesus, crazy in love with my husband, obsessed with all the puppies, and will never turn down a good 'ol cup of coffee.

Get to know the girl behind the lens

I was born and raised in a little South Central Pennsylvania town, home-schooled throughout my entire childhood education and the only girl sibling in my family. I'm an introvert at heart, probably the biggest homebody ever and love a good night in watching my favorite Crime shows with my hubs.


I love to create. It has always been a passion of mine. Whether it be drawing, painting, decorating or baking - I just love it. When my parents gifted me my first digital camera in my early teens, my love for photography blossomed.

I have an adorable, cuddly, crazy chocolate lab (Toby) and he's basically my fur-child. He is massive, but thinks he's a lap dog and will sit on you any chance he gets. If you're wanting some quality cuddles, he's your go to. Spilled some food on the floor? Yep, he's got it taken care of.

I saved the best for last: I'm married to the sweetest man, Chris. We tied the knot in September 2019 and I just love doing life with him. He's my best friend and biggest supporter. He's been with me since day one of starting this business and he has always encouraged me to chase my dreams. He gets excited with me when I reach my goals and has even come to sessions with me to carry my gear and coats for clients! I'm so grateful that I get to share all of this with him & even more grateful that he encouraged me to put myself out there and start this business.
