I am a photographer of 20+ years.

BA in Fine Art 
(graphic design + photography)

But here's what I really want you to know....

Life is short.

Take the trip. Eat the pizza. Exist in photos. 


In 2008 my entire perspective shifted and changed when my sister was killed in a car accident. She was only 28. I realized the brevity of life is a real thing and that life is too short not to chase your dreams. So on May 10, 2010, I quit my Marketing job and went full-time into photography. The monarch butterfly in my logo is for my sister. You can read about her and why I use the monarch butterfly in my branding on the TRIBUTE page of my website. There were so very few photos of my sister Jess after she died... In 2018 I committed to world travel. I started taking trip and getting out of my comfort zone. I started making new friends and connecting with other women who inspired me. I showed up for myself and I've NEVER BEEN THE SAME. I want to give these things to other women, empowering them to exist in photos and to travel. Both have brought me the most radical healing!

I am committed to building a tribe of women, fellow sisters who need to be empowered, celebrated, and to GET THEM OUT OF THEIR COMFORT ZONES B/C THAT IS WHERE WE FIND OUR WINGS.


I have met so many women who don't celebrate themselves in photos - instead, they are always doing the documenting of everyone else they love. OR they deem themselves not ready for a shoot because they think they are flawed. Imperfect IS perfect. There is limited time to live without regret, and unlimited time to regret not living. THIS time is about YOU - for YOU to celebrate you in a way that you want. 

A caterpillar cannot find wings unless it leaves the familiarity of the chrysalis.

Whether to find your wings or for you to simply see their beauty... work with me.


“Butterflies can't see their wings. They can't see how truly beautiful they are, but everyone else can. People are like that as well.”
