Hey! So a little about me....

I went to art school at International Academy of Design and Technology in Tampa for digital photography where I received my degree. While in school, not only could I create whatever I wanted through my photography, I learned to love capturing the emotion of people the most. The moment I share my clients images, I give them memories for a lifetime that they love and cherish and it is the best job I could ask for. I absolutely love creating unique wall art that comes from children's imagination and thrive on those thoughts all the time! I am married to my high school sweetheart, PJ, and we got married on our 8 year anniversary. Our son Dallas Gray was born 12.29.15 and our new addition Briella Skye born 08.25.18. I am the youngest of 3 and my family is everything! My business name came along in memory of my father from the song Butterfly Kisses! The hardest part in my life was loosing him suddenly when I was 18 and in college. After going through a loss in life, memories in photographs are more important then ever before!
