I'm obsessed with iced coffee, but real obsessed with tacos. These are the two main things I absolutely need on the weekends and when traveling to a new place. I've lived in Kentucky most of my life, but would you believe me if I said I've never been to the Derby and I don't like fried chicken? Mind blown, right?!

Anyway, I'm so glad you're here! I truly mean it when I say I'm ready to celebrate you. There's so much to enjoy in life, and nothing makes me happier than capturing the joys special to you - big or small.

my mission

My goal as a photographer is to be more than the human behind a camera. I want us to have some dang fun getting to really know each other to create an experience for you unlike any other.  I focus on creating an environment for you to feel comfortable, let loose, spill those inside jokes but most importantly, allow for the raw moments to happen naturally.

No matter who you are, I promise your story is special. The in-between moments are special. The photos we create will be even more special. You deserve to be celebrated and let me tell ya, we are going to celebrate you whole-heartedly. Am I talking your language? I can't wait to meet you already!

My fiancé Josh and I LOVED our engagement session with Porchia! She made us feel extremely comfortable in front of the camera and made the whole experience seemingly effortless on our part. The session was filled with so much love and laughter, and I couldn’t be more impressed with the final results. It is apparent that Porchia truly puts her whole heart into this business. By the end of the shoot she will become your best friend and biggest fan!

We were so excited to work with Porchia for the first time! We had seen her work before and absolutely loved her style. There was never any awkwardness or pressure. She did such an amazing job at making us feel comfortable and making it a fun session!! She literally captured the moment we found out if our first baby would be a girl or boy. I don’t think I could EVER forget that. She caught every emotion and every moment. It was perfect! We trusted her with SUCH a huge moment of our lives that we would only get to experience once and she exceeded every expectation! She took our ideas into consideration and also had her own and we ended up with the most beautiful photos!! Porchia was in NO hurry to leave. She stayed for as long as it took to get the perfect photos. She is SO sweet and so caring. She truly wants to make sure you’re happy with what you’re getting! (And trust me you will be!)

Before the session, I was skeptical how our pictures would turn out— not based on the talent of Porchia but nervous how we would photograph because nerves can often result in awkwardness. After a few warm up shots, I felt so relieved that it was like just us two there. Porchia guided us to a natural pose all while bringing our personalities out too. This shoot was by far one of our favorite memories together as we shared an incredible amount of laughs and smiles in addition to having the best way to remember it— stunning, soulful pictures. Porchia goes above and beyond to provide the best service with genuine passion. I can not recommend this talented, kind-hearted individual enough. She has made us customers for life.

Going into our engagement session, we were a little nervous and weren't sure how it was going to go. Of course we were thinking we were too awkward or weren't photogenic enough and it was going to be weird posing in front of someone. However, we were wrong and had a blast! Porchia did such an amazing job of making us comfortable. Going in she told us to think of it as a date and kept it light and fun throughout the whole shoot. She gave us prompts and direction that suited our personalities and made our pictures natural. By getting us to be ourselves and be in the moment, she truly captured our relationship and the love we have for each other. I would recommend Porchia for any photo needs! She is SO attentive to your needs before, during, and after the shoot. She is observant and her kind and bubbly personality will bring out the best in you for your photos :) A+. 10/10
