As much as I enjoy my bed and collecting succulents knowing I don't have the space for it, I can't sit still. I love to travel and explore. There is just something about travel that you can't do just by being in one place and the awesome thing about that is that I get to meet new people from all over and where I have learned some of the most valuable lessons in life and made the best memories.

Did you know I started with event coordinating before photography? So, if you are thinking about taking your special moments, intimate weddings, or engagement for an adventure, you are definitely in the right place. I'm all about the messy adventures and making these awesome memories. With that being said, I tend to stray from the traditional photos like at a park, so I love taking my couples out to the mountain side or have us a little road trip to the coast for a little adventure. No stiff smiling and posing allowed, we just have fun.

Photography has also been a wonderful way to nurture my artistic and creative side and story tell for my couples and I am very fortunate to have in my life. In short, seeing others happy makes me happy! And if you feel you connect with my work and are ready for an adventure, head over to my contact page and say hello!

MY PHILOSOPHY

Photography isn't just my hobby. It's my passion. I put my all into not just your images but as your experience as a whole.

I believe in the power of photography.

 

As an artform, as an important way to document life, and as a form of healing. When you see an image, sometimes you'll smile because you remembered exactly what happened in that moment. Sometimes it's a reminder of something or someone you never want to forget. At one point, it was both of those for me and not only that but a journey to self-healing. I have used photography as a way to accept who I am and how I see the world. I believe it is such beautiful perspective because you get see how I see the world through my eyes via my lens. I hope that when I get the chance to photograph others, that the same can happen. After having complete hair loss due to a medical condition called Alopecia, having regrowth, fall out, and continual change, I have come to appreciate and wish that what it did for me can do for others and that you can experience the same journey to self-love.

 

I like to think I am a different kind of photographer. Those imperfections you see are perfections to me and if you can't see it, let me give you the opportunity to. I don't use photoshop. I will never change who you are because whatever that is, it is what makes who you are. God made you perfectly and I will use that as a leverage to show you that! Scar, curves, no hair, all of it!

 

I focus in the moment vs. having to create that moment. It's about having fun and creating memories at my sessions! So, it's never going to be super posey and boring. Photography is documenting in its most honest form so honestly; we should be treating it like it's an experience and enjoy it together!
