Behind the lens.


I am a internationally Published Photographer who focuses on creative art and detail photography. I don't have a style. Each photoshoot has it's own interesting aesthetic. It all depends on the mood. You most likely will find lots of vibrant, bold colors, contrast and light in my images. My skies are dynamic & my skin tones are creamy. My work isn't for everyone and that's okay - everyone is different and that's what makes us beautiful.

I was born in Aurora, Colorado. Raised in Yorktown, Virginia. Spent some time in San Francisco, California and the gorgeous little island, Guam - I am currently living in Japan with my husband & our two beautiful daughters. You will see them plastered all over my social media!

I absolutely love working with children & meeting new people. I was a Montessori teacher for several years before beginning my journey into photography. During that time, I was merely a photography hobbyist. I never thought it would turn into something so valuable to me. My business & my clients mean the world to me.

During my sessions, I strive to capture beautiful moments in a calm environment so that people can relive their special moments whenever they choose, through my work. I specialize in creative portraits but will shoot Family, Children, Animals, Couples, Engagement, Maternity & Fresh 48 Sessions and more in a heart beat. I’m ALWAYS up to try something new & different so never hesitate to throw your ideas my way.

I’m absolutely inspired by creativity & I love expressing myself through photography. Photography excites me; from the moment I have an idea to the moment I’m sitting at my computer saving my finished work. I love what I do. It's my passion!

If you would like to work together; send me a message so we can create some timeless images that you will cherish forever.
