I am the owner and photographer at Youforia Photography (licensed and insured!) and I also am a photojournalist for Shutter16 Magazine.
I was born and raised right here in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia. I'm a kind hearted gal who loves to capture authentic emotions. I have a knack for working with children and I LOVE golden hour! My style is fun, low stress and open minded. I enjoy photographing all kinds of subjects.
My goal is to make your vision a reality, something you can cherish forever, while simultaneously making you feel confident, comfortable and beautiful. I like to play music at my shoots to create a relaxing atmosphere, and if you're new to being in front of the camera, I'm happy to guide you through posing with prompts and direction.
When I'm not out snapping photos, I'm working my day job doing firearm tracing! But when I'm not working, I'm probably at home spending time with my boyfriend, Thomas, and cats. I'm also a proud auntie to two sweet little babes, Orion and Vada. (They model for me quite often!) Besides photography, my interests include crystals, going to concerts, video games and tattoos. My favorite color is yellow and I am a total animal lover.
I hope you learned a bit about me and my photography style!
Thanks for reading and I look forward to collaborating with you.
