I'm Layne, a brunch-obsessed high school senior portrait photographer, world traveler, and local business lover. I believe in big dreams, digging the cookie dough out of the ice cream (to eat it by itself!), drinking out of pretty coffee mugs, and documenting life as it happens.

Though my business focuses primarily on senior girls, you might occasionally see me snuggling one of my friends' newborn babies, capturing a beautiful wedding day, or embracing the chaos during a family session.

Grab your favorite snack, snuggle up in a cozy spot, and take a peek at my adventures!

thank you so much for stopping by!

Corbin Lyle I don’t have any real nieces and nephews yet, but I have a lot of besties having babies and I AM LOVING IT. Anyone who knows me knows that I love babies – my family affectionately calls me “the baby whisperer” and if there’s a baby at a family function, you better get your turn before […]

Nolan James | Adoption Story

Nolan James was born on his brother’s “Gotcha Day”, July 3 and he was welcomed home by a throng of his giddy family members on July 9, his Grandma’s birthday.
