THIS IS ME
photographer. traveler. risk taker.
seeker of the human connection.
You probably already know that I'm a family and portrait photographer, but you may not know that it's the beauty and complexity of womanhood that inspires me to shoot. I feel most alive when I'm creating organic, evocative images that make women feel empowered, gorgeous, and strong AF. If you love the planet as much as happy hour drinks with girlfriends, we're probably going to create some rad art together.
When we shoot together I have a few goals: guide you to look and feel natural on camera while flattering you at the same time (no one likes a double chin); make the day one of your favorite days ever (because if we're not having fun what's the point?); and document you and your loves in an authentic way that honors your story.
Utah is home but I have traveled all over in search of experiences and connections bigger than myself. You can find me hiking, mountain biking, kayaking and boarding in my backyard. Or surfing, diving, and eating street noodles on the other side of the planet. And don't think for a second I'm good at any of these things (except eating street noodles...I'm really good at that), I'm just a big believer in squeezing everything I can out of life and challenging myself to live with less fear and more passion.
I love to talk and nothing makes me more uncomfortable than awkward silences. When we're shooting together I want to make you feel as comfortable as possible on the other side of the camera, which means I'm constantly engaging you in conversation. Because when you're laughing with me...at me...at yourselves, you're not thinking about how awkward you believe you are in front of the camera. It's important to me that the photos in your final collection feel like a true representation of you. So, I focus on imperfect, candid, real moments and expressions, not stiffly posed look at the camera and smile images. I will capture a few of those because maybe your mom will want one or maybe you need a new shot on your linked in profile, but that's not really why we're here. We're here to create something genuine together that tells the story of what it FELT like for you in that space, with your people, enveloped in all that love. It's your story and it deserves to be told.
