Bellevue Photography was born out of a passion for taking portraits of loved ones. At the heart of that passion is the joy I feel when showing others just how beautiful their lives truly are. My hope is that I can capture a genuine portrait of your life from a different perspective and freeze those fleeting emotions and precious little moments in time that will make you feel joyful, beautiful, fulfilled and loved. When I am behind the camera, what I see on the other side of my lens is a beautiful thing, a beautiful view — une belle vue.
I grew up in Lexington, Virginia, where I developed a deep love of the town and surrounding countryside. After graduating from Washington & Lee University in Lexington, I spent several years in New York and Denver pursuing a career in the fast-paced advertising industry. It was a wild and amazing adventure, but my heart has always been back in Virginia. With our happy pup Divot in tow, my husband Jason and I headed to Charlottesville to create a life together in our new Virginia home. It sure feels good to be back in the Blue Ridge Mountains!
