Hi! I’m Morgan, I am a believer growing in my faith day after day. I am married to Chris, my best friend and the goofiest person I know. I am mommy to Baker Grace, our bright and hilarious 2-year-old. I love traveling with my family, eating new food, dancing in the kitchen, and wearing leggings (who doesn’t?!) Photography is the creative outlet the Lord brought to me in 2019, for which I couldn’t be more grateful.
