Photographer | Creative | Foodie

I've been a lover of photography for as long as I can remember, which sounds as cliche and cheesy as you'd expect with any photographer's bio - but's it the honest to goodness truth! 

I remember becoming glued to any behind-the-scenes photo shoot tv special that would be on allowing you to watch a photo shoot unfold for real, not just the final photographs that we would see in a magazine. 

I loved seeing how a photographer interact with the model, studying how the hair and makeup team transformed the model, and gushing over the amazing locations used as a backdrop. 

After traveling throughout the East Coast and Internationally for 13 years, I took a bit of a hiatus from the photo world to explore other career possibilities, but nothing has fueled my creative soul like photography.  

Rather than pick up where I left off, I am starting over and shaking up how I connect with photography and my clients.  As the universe would have it, I'll be moving into a small natural light studio later this summer and would love an opportunity to photograph you. 

When the camera is down and I am out of the studio, I can be often be found paddleboarding or in the kitchen creating some variation of a paleo meal for my husband and myself.
