MY SUCCESS AS A PHOTOGRAPHER IS NOT ONLY MEASURED THROUGH THE QUALITY OF MY WORK, BUT THROUGH THE CONNECTIONS WITH THE PEOPLE I WORK WITH.
CLIENT RELATIONSHIPS ARE THE FOUNDATION OF MY BUSINESS. BY MAKING AN HONEST CONNECTION, I AM ABLE TO MAKE HONEST, COMPELLING PHOTOGRAPHS.
At the age of 13, I began developing film in the darkroom during the day, and I painted in my "studio" at night (a.k.a. the family garage). It was through my artistic exploration that I began to realize my affinity for storytelling. Having developed an entrepreneurial spirit early on, I’ve been an aspiring artist since my adolescence and would have my life no other way. This is where my photography career was born, and telling stories through photographs has been my passion and my profession for the past decade.
Photography is a personal daily practice that translates into a career sustained by passion and connection. Natural beauty has been a consistent, and powerful muse for me as it can be found everywhere and in everything. As a photographer, I am constantly aware of the beautiful nuances I encounter each day.
My success as a photographer is not only measured by the quality of my work but through the connections with the people I work with. My client relationships are the foundation of my business. I believe that by making an honest connection, I am able to make honest photographs. With a professional and light-hearted approach, I am committed to helping my clients feel comfortable at ease. Whether I am documenting a family in the comforts of their home, or working on a commercial shoot for a local business – my mission always remains the same: to create captivating, compelling images.
I was born and raised in Sonoma County, and currently live in Oakland CA. When I am not photographing, you can find me spending time with family + friends, cooking delicious food and hosting dinner parties, painting, practicing yoga or gardening in my yard. Although I've been fortunate to explore many pockets of the world, I am always yearning for fresh experiences in new places. Envisioning myself manifesting more photography opportunities globally keeps me motivated and inspired.
I would be honored to work with you, and would love to show the world who you are and what you do. Everyone has a story to tell and I am here to help document it.
