Hi! I'm Desirée! First and foremost, I am a photographer. Somehow I'm one of those lucky people that got to be what I wanted when I grow up. I was just a kid with a disposable camera... and well, here we are now! 

For over half of my life, photography has been the greatest source of joy, expression, and accomplishment I've experienced. I'm influenced most by nature, adventure, and the human condition to seek and form connections. 

Other than photography, I'm pretty into sunsets, my dogs, traveling to new places, visiting my favorite places, audiobooks, camping, and exceptionally good coffee. 

 
 
 

 

Please fill out the form if you'd like to speak with me directly (and please allow up to 48 hours for a reply- sometimes I am away from wifi/cell service). 
 

Check out my social media links (at the bottom) to see where I am, where I'm going, and places I've shot in the past! I am based in Northwest Florida, but travel regularly for shoots. I'm most frequently in Charleston, South Carolina, and New York City. 


One of my favorite things to do with clients is go to places that hold personal significance to take their photos. Sometimes that place is somewhere new for both of us, and those maybe are my absolute favorite. For me, life is about the experiences you have, and who you share them with. I'm so thankful my job brings people into my life who value those things as well.
