To do what they do, artists and photographers need light. For me, all the light I'll ever need comes from capturing the sweet moments and beautiful connections on the other side of my lens. 

Capturing the raw emotion of your moments.

In a world that moves at a frenetic pace, it's all too easy to let time run away with you. My job is to stop time, even for just a moment, and capture the incredible beauty of now. This moment with your child, that smile on your partner's face, the light dancing on a scar allowing you to see if differently for the very first time. These are the gifts of capturing a moment so it is never forgotten. And these captured moments are the fuel that keep us moving forward through uncertainties, over peaks and through valleys. These moments we'll capture together are a celebration of it all...of the journey to now, and of the hope for all that is to come.

So your memories are never forgotten...

Behind the Lens

My job as a body positive, intimate, empowerment photographer is to show you that you are perfect with the scars you bear. I too, carry scars. I know well what it is to feel abandoned and alone. And I know what it is to not feel worthy of loving yourself, or being loved by someone else. Why am I telling you this? Because it is the path that prepared me to become the storytelling, empowerment photographer I am today. I know your hesitation to love your body, your mind, and your soul because I've been there. But today, I am here to tell you that you are seen. I am here to show you how powerful you are when you let go of your insecurities and become completely honest with who you are...scars and all.

To inspire, empower, and include.

my values

"Families are the compass that guide us. They are the inspiration to reach great heights, and our comfort when we occasionally falter".

-Brad Henry

I am married to Gregory my incredible husband of 8 years. He is the calm to my chaos, and he keeps me grounded. We have four beautiful children, Emma, Jonah, Leo, and Amelia who are earth-side and bring joy and light to our lives every single day. We also have a son Ezekiel who is no longer with us, but will forever remain a beautiful part of us. 

For me, becoming a mother gave me purpose, and a reason to become the best version of myself. Motherhood is where I found myself, but also where I learned the art of losing myself in order to discover and celebrate the version of me that embodies the gift of the present.

Through it all, and come what may, my family is and always will be the reason I refuse to give up on myself and my greatest inspiration on this beautiful journey to self love.

I have the privilege of growing with each new session I book, and I am deeply moved by the raw and beautiful memories this job allows me to capture.

What an incredible honor it was to create a warm, inviting, and safe space where I could work with clients to photograph some of their sweetest moments. 

Created my first studio space

2018

That session opened my eyes to the incredibly empowering and healing role that photography can play in the lives of  those who are searching for ways to honor the scars they wear.
