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!

Emily and I have known each other her entire life! She’s my uncle’s niece and and one of the sweetest young ladies I have ever known. I have some great memories of her when she was young and I can’t believe she’s a senior already!
