I have always believed in quality over quantity and a well balanced life. I love to spend my days working with my photography clients, and my evenings playing with my family.

I am a health nut who loves wine, sushi, and yoga, and I am always looking for ways to live a more purposeful, relaxed and meaningful life. I am a technology loving computer and camera nerd, and I equally love disconnecting to focus on nature for a good hike with my dogs.

I love living in the moment and creating a tailored experiences for the people I photograph. I see photographs in everything I do, whether I am holding a camera or not. Creating heirlooms, memorializing moments, and documenting pieces of happiness are what make me thrive. I love to guide my clients through the photography process in such an easy way that it reduces their stress in every part of the process.

I have a vast amount of experience that you won’t find anywhere else. I have been a photographer for 15 years and I am so happy to share my experience and knowledge with my clients, I’m an open book to you. I love the relationships I build with my clients and would be honored to speak with you about the photos you need. Just get in touch and I am happy to answer any of your questions.
