I prefer to describe my approach as emotionally infused, lifestyle-focused, intimate portraiture.  While a beautiful picture has its place, an image that's filled with emotion has the power to tell a story.

As a photographer, the significance of intent cannot be overstated. I create photographs of women for themselves first and foremost. While some clients may choose to share their pictures with their significant others, my primary objective is to craft imagery for YOU first and foremost.  I want you to look at your images and FEEL something. I want your images make you feel powerful, confident and self aware. I want your images to remind you of where you are right now. What you’ve overcome and where you are heading.

Well, I have found most of my clients are just like me.

My client is an extremely busy woman and is always feeling pulled 500 different directions. She doesn’t often take time for herself but she understands that it’s important and that she can’t pour from an empty cup. She knows deep down who she is but still feels like maybe she has lost herself a bit. She loves hard…really hard…and until now she has mostly given that love away to others. She has learned that it’s ok and well, absolutely necessary to give herself some of that love too.

My superpower is revealing all the beautiful sides of YOU that you never get to see all while making sure you look absolutely amazing. And I’m not one bit embarrassed to say, I’m damn good at it.

Are you ready?

I am a full-on INFP (Introverted, iNtuitive, Feeling, Perceiving) personality which I believe really helps me in this work.  Mediators are sensitive, creative, perceptive, caring, loyal, value personal growth, are open minded, dedicated and hard working.

I've driven the entire Mother Road (aka Route 66) from start to finish.  It starts in Chicago and ends in Santa Monica.  It's a beautiful way to see the country and I highly recommend it to everyone I know!

I don't do it professionally but I read Tarot.  The cards are a great tool for better understanding yourself and the world around you!

I've been shooting professionally since I was 19 years old.  My high school career assessment recommended "Photographer" as my number one career choice.

I love nature and I cry easily.  I've been brought to tears by the beauty of it all more than once.  Yeah - kind of embarrassing when you're not alone.

In my spare time I am an aspiring herbalist.  Herbal medicine has helped me tremendously with my own health which has inspired me to learn as much as I can.  You'll find me crafting herbal tinctures, teas & other natural remedies on my days off.
