I am originally from Saraland, AL and moved to Hattiesburg to attend USM and knew I never wanted to leave. I am recently married to my best friend, Zach, and we have so much fun together. Being an enneagram 2 married to an enneagram 7, I always have the plans mapped out and he brings all the spontaneity. I am obsessed with all things sweet, especially gummy candy, and I always have a fizz stick in my cup! I have a love for health and wellness and it is my deep desire to empower women and help them see their true beauty, all while having the most fun!
Shelby hands down will do two things every time you are with her! One, find a reason to talk about her Golden Doods, & two, make you feel like you are the most important person in the room!! Besides being on team 'baseball is life', Shelby is the president of team 'bring your dog to your photoshoot'! (She brought hers!).
Hi friend, I'm Chandler! I am graduating from The University of Southern Mississippi in December of 2021 with a degree in Kinesiology and Nutrition. I am a dog lover, and my boyfriend Ben and I have two sweet pups, Simba and Tuck! I have a passion for loving and serving people and capturing such special moments in their lives!
Hey guys, I’m Hailey! I’m an Army wife, mom to one toddler, with one bebè (if you get the reference, we’re automatic best friends) on the way. If you know me, you know I’m a HUGE fan of traveling and will never turn away an opportunity to do so. I’ve lived in six different states throughout my life and have grown to love Mississippi the seven years I’ve now been here! I can’t wait for the opportunity to meet you and serve you in the best way I can!
I am a student at the University of Southern Mississippi, and I enjoy every second of living here in Hattiesburg! I am extremely involved on campus and love giving back to others in any way I can! A fun fact about me is that 99.999% of the time, I have a large sweet tea in my hand (preferably from Raising Canes). I am probably the pickiest eater in the entire world, but I am always down for a food run :) Even though I am still in college, I can't wait to see how God is going to bless my life by working with this amazing team!

LET'S DO IT GIRL. I am 100% a certified dreamer and I take that role pretty seriously! I love Jesus, friends & fam, and my cute dog. ( I may be biased but he is the cutest ever! ) I am always on the go, ready for fresh opportunities, meeting new faces, and just trying to soak up as much of this life as possible. So, where are we going next and what next opportunity do we have to take on? I AM READY!
