Photographer | Creative | Foodie

I've been apart of the photography world 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 the TV when a behind-the-scenes photo shoot special would be on and you could watch a photo shoot unfold for real, not just the final product that we would see in a magazine. 

I loved seeing the photographer interact with the model, the hair and makeup team busy transforming 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 else  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 / keto meal for my husband and myself.
