My mission as a photographer is to preserve fleeting moments of beauty and capture the subtle nuances of each person that makes their way in front of my lens.
As an empathetic and perceptive observer, I use my natural inclination to see past exteriors so I can bring my client’s creative vision to life.
Before shoots I take time to scout unique outdoor spaces that complement the desired aesthetic. For indoor sessions, I use my stylistic eye to tailor angles and perspective so that images are impactful, dynamic and evoke a certain mood. I use professional and thoughtful guidance to help clients feel at ease in front of the camera to provide a safe space for personal, raw expression. Sessions are designed to feel organic, natural, and less formal or posed.
My goal for every photoshoot is to feature my subjects as a whole being, rather than a singular part. I believe that every human, mother, father, child, yogi, artist or entrepreneur are more than just that –– they are intricate, complicated beings with endless depth and possess an intrinsic spirit that is wishing to be seen.
I specialize in photographing female entrepreneurs, creatives, and artists, however I love taking on family portraits, special events, and professional headshots for those who would like to capture something different from the ordinary.
