Hello friend, I'm Avery!

I am the gal behind the camera. I am a portrait photographer local to North Carolina + North Georgia. I am a believer of Christ + forever thankful that He has set my feet to dance, free of chains. I am a military wife and we are currently stationed in Fayetteville, North Carolina.  I'm a lefty + I am truly awful at using scissors (no joke, it's a problem). You will most likely find me in the flower section of the grocery store, or running in the woods with my pup. I truly believe that my God is the giver and sustainer of life + all beauty. It is my ultimate goal to create images + memories that glorify His name alone, not mine. I also strive to create images that take a very untraditional approach, as I look to capture moments that encapsulate raw, unposed emotion, because I believe authenticity is incredibly important.

Whether you are a mama to be, a senior looking forward to graduation, a family updating those portraits hanging on the wall, or a newly engaged couple searching for a wedding photographer, I am humbled at the opportunity to be a small part of your story.  

Thanks so much for stopping by.
