A moment can last forever with photography and that is one of the many reasons I get so excited about it. How amazing is it that we can freeze time and look back on it forever? 

I want to capture exactly what each of my clients has in mind for every shoot and so I encourage in-person meetings before the session! Not only can I get to know you a little better, but it'll increase your comfort with me before you even get in front of the camera! Tea? Coffee? Soda? Lets do it! 

Are you just as addicted to Pinterest as I am? Lets set up a combined Pinterest board and get some inspiration before your shoot! Not only will this let me get inside your head, but it will also get us both even more excited for the special date!

Interested in having me travel to you? I do have a fee for travel, but am open to exploring many new places and to capture whatever special moments you want!

I offer all sorts of photo sessions such as senior portraits, engagements, weddings, headshots, homecomings, newborns and more! Have a special request? Send me an email and we can work something out!


We had the best experience with McKenna today! Our family did a fall mini session with her and it was our first experience with professional pictures being made and we couldn’t have picked anyone better. She was incredibly responsive to any questions I had and made us feel like we were her only clients today even though she had many more she was photographing. We had a blast in front of her camera and would recommend her to anyone solely based off the level of comfort we had with her, and we haven’t even seen our photos yet. Thank you McKenna for an amazing experience. Our family has found our “forever” (until our next move) photographer!

McKenna has taken photos for me personally & for my business, for years. She is one sweet, talented & professional boss lady with a heart of gold. She can capture your aesthetic perfectly & delivers exactly what you ask for & more. Now that McKenna has moved across the country we’re obviously not working together anymore but I couldn’t recommend her more, she’s the best!

We had our maternity shoot with McKenna yesterday. I’ve modeled my whole life and have never had a better experience with a photographer. She made the experience personable, comfortable, relaxing and exciting! The affordability, experience and extreme timely manner we got our photo gallery was the best I’ve ever had. I won’t be going to anyone else to have future pictures done!

I highly recommend McKenna!!! She was very professional & very easy to work with. I’m super shy being photographed but I felt comfortable with her. She was also so patient with my wild 3 year old & took some beautiful pictures of her! Like I told her, I will be booking all my future sessions with her!!

Highly recommend! McKenna was so wonderful! I had to reschedule so many times due to my husbands homecoming being delayed and through the whole process she was kind and understanding! We finally did a shoot when he came home, she was great with my kiddos and the pictures turned out amazing! Thank you so much McKenna!

We had our maternity session with her this morning and she is so fun to work with!! We will definitely be using her again for our son’s newborn shoot and any other shoots we end up having!

We love our photos! McKenna did an amazing job with our large family! She was professional, patient, and super sweet. We will use her again, highly recommend!

McKenna has done our engagement photos, family photos, and wedding photos, and we couldn’t be happier with the results—or the process. McKenna kept things relaxed, captured us being ourselves, and got us even better photos than we hoped for. We’ve gotten compliment after compliment from everyone we’ve shared our photos with.

We almost got rained out but it was the only day we could get pictures done before Christmas, so McKenna got soaking wet and our pictures turned out amazing! She was so sweet and so good about trying to get my mean mugging babe to smile.

My husband and I had Fall Pictures done and we absolutely loved them ! She made us feel so comfortable and we had a blast doing it , and we were a few minutes late but she was very understanding and helpful.

McKenna is a local Photographer in Jacksonville, NC and I work with her often on her Boudoir marathons! She’s incredible at what she does and her talent is recognizable far beyond just me. I love how upbeat and friendly she is, making her super professional and easy to work with! 10/10 highly recommend if you’re needing a Photographer for any occasion, she’s your girl! She will not disappoint!
