More About Me
When I’m not photographing beautiful people & beautiful things, I’m either watching Netflix, playing video games with my husband, macramaking for my Etsy, or redecorating. It’s a toss-up on whether I’m a homebody or ready to go on an adventure. There really is no in between.
Things I love:
Days spend exploring new places, in the woods, at a cute coffee shop or at Disneyland all hold special places in my heart. My hubby & I love going to the movies & playing fortnite together too.
I'm either out adventuring or being a homebody in my P.J's!
I love being outdoors & love visiting National Parks & camping. Mammoth & Yosemite & the entire Eastern Sierra's hold a very special place in my heart.
My Dad was always making sure nature & the mountains were part of my life. He's shared that love with me & I am forever grateful for that! Chances are, if you do an adventurous elopement, you'll meet my Dad!

When I think about my purpose with photography and what matters most to me in my work, the first thing that pops into my head is showcasing authentic beauty. To say I want the viewers of my work to see beauty would be too generic. I don’t mean overly photo shopped Barbie-style beauty. I mean raw, real, beauty that is sometimes hard for the untrained eye to see. My favorite moments to capture and share with the world are the moments in-between that make the viewer feel a rush of love and nostalgia. For example, they see a photo of mine of family walking through a field, focused on the mother’s hand clasped around her child’s, and a flurry of emotions hit them and they are reminded of the simplistic beauty of holding their own mother’s hand as a child. My aesthetic feels gritty and grainy and warm and cinematic. The moments don’t always have to be perfectly perfect. I make those imperfect moments into the best frames of my photography. I think the true punctum of my images is that moment in time that I capture a bride and groom on their wedding day laughing about something silly that just happened or that spark in someone’s eyes when they think about a loved one.
