Photography is not just something I do; it's part of who I am. I picked up a camera at a young age and told everyone I was going to be a photographer when I grew up. (Yes, I really said that.) I believe I inherited the artistic eye from my mom and the technical aptitude from my dad, and I approach photography with a consideration of both aspects. I'm formally educated in the areas of fine arts, photography, graphic design, and marketing. My first college course even involved developing my own film in the darkroom! After college I worked as a photography studio assistant for about a year, and then in 2011 I turned what I loved into my own business. I enjoy pushing my creative boundaries and learning everything I can about photography. Photos allow me to feel a connection to people and places of the past, and I am fulfilled by creating art that I know will be loved and appreciated. Beyond photography, I love cats, antiques, mint chocolate chip ice cream, rose gold, good grammar, and the sights and sounds found in nature.

the gear list

I believe that photography is about preserving something as it is in the moment and bringing out the beauty in things that go unnoticed by most.
