DOCUMENTING   APPALACHIA


 

 



Welcome


Hey y'all, and welcome! I’m Sydnei, and I am so glad you are here. My mission as a photographer is to immortalize the way your family is right now. Whether you are holding the dimpled little hands of a sweet baby or the ever-changing personality of a teen, this time is worth preserving. Family is the most important part of life. My goal is to tell your unique story through the images I take. Engulfing that connection with the beauty of Southwest Virginia and Central Appalachia creates a total work of art. Whether you are a local or visiting, I would love to capture you. 


 

"Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing."

Camille Pissarro

"Sydnei did an amazing job on our photos and made me feel so comfortable while doing so! She was able to capture beautiful photos, despite having a fussy 1 year old in the mix. 10/10 definitely recommend!

Sydnei made my shoot such a great experience. I had fun the whole time. She'll hype you up and make you feel so great and confident. She's committed to the good shots as well. She was literally crawling on the ground to get them. Whatever the occasion is, she'll capture it perfectly... I can't recommend her enough.“
