history and experience

Connecting with my subjects is my favorite part of photographing people. 

Making them feel relaxed and at ease is my ultimate goal. Even if we only spend a brief amount of time together, I want to get to know them and help tell their story. That connection is what turns a good photograph into a great photograph. 

The environment is crucial to storytelling. Whether we’re out in nature or indoors, my eye is drawn to every detail. It adds depth and reveals the hidden layers within someone’s personality, while giving clues about their background, culture, and what’s important to them. Every environment is unique and it intrigues me to discover interesting places and the people within them. 

Light is everything. I am comfortable working in just about any lighting condition, and am confident in blending artificial and natural light to create an organic and natural look and feel. 

Photography can often be a one-woman sport, but working with a talented creative team brings me so much joy.

I want everyone to feel welcome to bring their ideas to the table. When we collaborate, magic happens. 

Hiring a photographer doesn't have to be a headache. Whether you're looking for new portraits, social-media content, or commercial campaign photography, I can help guide you toward quality solutions that sparkle, represent your brand and sell your product or idea. 

I pour my everything into a shoot. It is not only a job, but a complete reflection of who I am.

"I chose her because I loved her work and I wanted to “level up” my design business & website with professional photos. She went above and beyond what I was expecting. Her photography, editing skills & all around professionalism is rare to find in a photographer. I am so glad I made the investment and I know I can use these for years to come."

"You were terrific to work with, and the photos are beautiful and praised by many departments here at Vacasa. I hope we get to work together again in the future!"
