Here you will see me in my native form and undisputed happy place, behind my camera, capturing an amazing wedding day.
I have been a professional photographer for over eight years now but have been playing behind a camera for almost 12 years. I love capturing those real, authentically emotional moments in my clients lives. I love chasing around that gorgeous sunset golden light. I get really excited when I take a picture I love and start doing this happy-dance-squeal deal. Brace yourselves.
This is my crew. I am blessed to call myself "Mama" to my three wild little boys, as well as "Billlliieeee" to my bonus boy! They make my world spin blessedly off its axis and I wouldn't have it any other way. They are my why, they are my how. They are my everything.
Side note: These family portraits were self taken, hence the extra excited look on my face! You can imagine the hilarity that ensued behind the scenes!
In a story fit for a Lifetime Movie, I met my husband, Brad, last year, while shooting his law firm's new marketing pictures. We had a bit of a whirlwind romance and on Christmas morning 2019, he surprised me with a gift that contained a portrait of himself and our four boys, my three holding up signs that said 'Will" "You" "Marry" and his son holding a sign that said "My Dad" and he was on one knee next to them with my ring. It was perfection for this photographer's heart *chef's kiss* We married in a very private ceremony in his office at his law firm on February 13th, 2020. Life is good. My heart is happy. My soul is at peace. And my husband is pretty much cooler than the flip side of a pillow but I make homemade cupcakes better than he does. ;)
I love that all of my clients become fast friends because of the connection and relationship we foster during their portrait sessions or wedding days!
I love that my job allows me to play a small part in so many amazing seasons of my client's lives, by capturing their forever memories.
I love how the world looks from behind my lens and I can't wait to share that with you!

Billie Jean has an amazing personality that makes it easy for you to open up while being photographed! She is funny, professional, and very personable. Billie Jean did an AWESOME job with our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos. Billie Jean was such a blessing to have as our photographer on our wedding day. If you need a GREAT photographer for your wedding or even to snap some pictures of your family Billie Jean is your girl! - Kelli & Daniel
I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Billie Jean! Not only is she an amazing photographer, she is an amazing person and a PERFECT fit for her job!
When it seemed like nothing was going right on our wedding day, she was our saving grace. I distinctly remember at one point she could tell my husband and I were getting a little overwhelmed with everything going on at the moment, so she stole just the two of us away to take some pictures and just breathe and take a few minutes to ourselves. We were so thankful for her personality (and of course incredible pictures) to help us through one of the best and most stressful days ever!
Hiring her as our photographer for our big day was the best decision we could have ever made! Kristen & Fred
