About   Me

hey friend!

Growing up, I knew no other lifestyle other than that of a creative one! Much of my time was spent watching and admiring my father who is a creative genius/ photographer/videographer extraordinaire. As I continued to shadow and learn from him, photography was one of those things that stuck with me and just never left. I love to photograph life, its real, raw and most honest moments. The sweetness of a new baby, the innocence of giggling children, the loving bond between a family - it's what keeps my shutter going. I strive to create images that tell stories of individual connections, warmth and love. To me, this profession lets me truly be able to hold on to those tiny fleeting moments in time forever. 
I will be thrilled to work with you and your family and create memories that you will treasure forever!  Let me tell your family's story behind my lens! 
chat soon.

i'm so glad you are here!
