I am a wife, a mom, a lover of words and books, and a woman who appreciates art. I enjoy being near the water. I'm a little bit girly and a little bit rocker. I was a teenager in the 90s, and I think a small part of me is still stuck there!
I am a published photographer, with a degree, and I have been shooting for almost 10 years, now. I am a portrait photographer, and I have always had a passion for fashion and conceptual portraits. In the last few years, however, I grew a soft spot for two things I thought I'd never shoot... weddings and newborns!
My husband and I had a small beach wedding, four years ago, and it was perfect. It was cozy and intimate. I love photographing small weddings like this. Having said that, I can get down with a little pomp and circumstance, too! What girl doesn't love a party? Whatever type of wedding you are having, you can count on me to capture it in true form. I don't add a lot of filters, or edit your photos in a very stylized manner. I keep them very natural, so that they aren't ever "dated" (at least photography-wise!). Fifty years from now, when you are showing your grandbabies photos of your wedding day, you will enjoy them as much as you do today!
Fashion photography was my first passion, and is still very close to my heart. I love that instant "click" and connection between a model and myself. I love the give and take that makes for an amazing image. For your portfolio, I shoot natural looks, as well as fun, themed fashion and editorial photography. I also shoot beauty, both natural and creative. I have hair stylists, makeup artists, and designers on board, who are just as fun as they are skilled, to take your photoshoot to the next level. Let's go all out!
Since giving birth to my own son I have fallen in love with newborn photography! I can't get enough of these soft, squishy, little ones. I love their long little stretches and their tiny big yawns. I love the silly faces they make, the gentle rise and fall of their breathing, and the softness of their skin. What is there NOT to love about a baby? I also really enjoy searching for blankets, wraps and props that reflect a fun, colorful style of photography. If you are looking for something on the brighter side, to make your baby really POP, you have come to the right place! If I don't have something for you, yet, I will FIND something.
Conceptual portraits will always be my creative outlet. This part of my portfolio is fun, quirky, sometimes dark, and exciting. I enjoy photographing creative, out-of-the-box makeup, hair, and wardrobe. I love using my hands to help build props or sets. There is a lot of energy and dynamism that goes into this type of shoot. There is also a lot of magic- which is exactly what I aim to capture! I have more ideas than I could ever photograph, if you need some inspiration. I also love hearing about your ideas, and helping them come to life. Let's make some magic!
