I have a romantic and organic approach to my wedding and portrait photography. I am utterly inspired by love and human connection, and the way in which individuals communicate through body language, words, and movement. Pausing moments of endearment forever is what gives me great joy and fulfillment as a photographer.
I live in Point Loma with my husband Teddy, our 9-month old daughter Hazel, and our pup Zoe. We’re on a 5-year plan to find the perfect lot of land in southern CA and build our dream farmhouse (the thought of little naked babies with popsicle juice dripping off their chins while running around with chickens warms my heart). I’m a homebody through and through, but am always up for travel and a new adventure. I have a bachelor’s degree in psychology and find the study of the mind fascinating – the way it interacts with a person’s soul to make one unique individual intrigues me.
Photography isn’t just a passion of mine — it’s a way in which I experience life — visually and intricately detailed. Some of my most cherished memories are those in which I can remember the stunning backdrop, intricate detail, or human expression of a scene. Tall, sunlit aspen trees encompassing us in June Lake as we vacationed each summer as kids, the smell of fresh brewed coffee at Bird Rock Coffee Roasters where I met my husband (and where he proposed 10 months later), or looking into the endearing, aging eyes of my grandmother as we catch up each Christmas. And while I thoroughly enjoy capturing the love and joys of my own life, I am just as passionate about capturing yours. I wholeheartedly believe you can feel love through a photograph, and glimpses of beauty that others may overlook, I strive to capture.
I am a true believer in the power of kindness, and that all anyone is searching for in life, is purpose, love, and human connection. If nothing else, I pray my photographs display that truth.
