Life has taken me on a wild ride from New York, to the Florida Keys, to California and now to Lubbock Texas. All of these places have influenced my style. I am a connection artist that loves depth, creative lifestyle and high end beauty/ glamour.
I am not the photographer for you if you are looking for "just a few shots of you formally posed and smiling at the camera."
I don't do things the same way that other photographers do, I have my own unique way of running my business and capturing moments.
I am a story teller, a stylist, a visual designer, a stylist, a thinker, a feeler, and a light chaser. I want every session to blow myself and my clients away.
What sets me apart from other photographers is my ability to style, using natural light as apposed to dated studio lighting, my unique studio space downtown, my drive to continue capturing moments even after set backs, and my international publications. Publications are like awards in the photography business in a way. Many of my styled sessions have been published over the last 2 years. I am proud of those accomplishments.
My photographs have been in The Artvoice newspaper, Clinician's Brief Magazine, Baroni Jewelry catalogue, the Baroni website, International Designer Maggie Sottero's website, Lace and Light, LooksLikeFilm, The Huffington Post and many more. Please check out my publications page for the full list with hyperlinks.
I started shooting weddings professionally in 2005 as an associate photographer for a company in New York. With over 12 years of experience in a wide range of photographic genres, I am confident in my ability to create art and capture emotionally moving moments.
I also photograph birth, lifestyle, fine art, boudoir, beauty/fashion, engagement, and maternity. I have a passion for styling. My main focus is capturing emotional connection and authenticity.
I did a little commercial and retail photography in the past.
I love the ocean, nature and when I'm not working I take nature photos, pictures of our son, dog and friends. I am an award winning dahlia grower. I love making halloween costumes. I'm a huge science geek and in my free time I enjoy reading about genetics.
The first thing you need to know about me is that I am not a bubbly person. I am complex. I am a deep thinker. I am an analyzer. I think these traits are largely why I gravitate towards this field of work. I prefer to be a fly on the wall during big moments and love one on one connections with people while shooting.
In 2011, my husband and I got married in our dream location, Big Sur, California. My wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty which was really exciting for us since I planned and styled the whole destination wedding myself.
My goals as a photographer are to remain authentic to my personal visions and push myself at each and every shoot. I want to blow you away with your photos. I aim for overall quality and use the best of my skills to the best of my abilities.
