I'VE TAKEN PHOTOS OF HUNDREDS UPON HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE OVER THE YEARS...
and if I’ve learned anything, it’s that being in front of a camera can make us feel vulnerable. Not always, but often. And it’s totally normal.
It’s an experience that people want to do with someone they trust and someone they feel safe with. Someone who understands and makes the process easier and lighter. Someone who can see our essence and bring it out.
A PHOTOGRAPH CAN REFLECT BACK TO US OUR LIGHT THROUGH THE WAY ANOTHER SEES US, BEYOND OUR SELF-CRITICISMS.
And when someone really sees us, there’s truly nothing but beauty to be reflected.
These moments of self-recognition are of immeasurable value—for they have the ability to shift the way we perceive ourselves and the way we relate to the world.
I ADORE THIS WORK.
It feels deeply meaningful to me to be able to finesse out the best versions of humankind and capture all the love that we are.
A small portion of my portfolio and experience are included below. <3

FINE ART TECHNIQUES
The quality of the work that is created comes from a sensitivity and attention to detail, not only to find the most flattering lighting and positioning possible, but to create a dreamlike feel through an advanced, time-intensive technique in post-processing. Making a few stunning photos takes importance over getting hundreds of "okay" ones.

*If it calls to you, I also am available for wardrobe consultations—whether this is to actually physically go shopping with you, even if it is just at the local thrift store (super fun), or to help you go through your existing clothes to handpick the outfit combinations you look and feel amazing in.
