Simple. True. Beauty.
I am an artist and photographer. I capture raw authentic moments of you, your passions, your heart, and all the beauty that is in that.
My story is very much one of self-discovery and working to find a way to follow my heart. I have always had a love for art and expressing myself in that way. Whether it was dancing, drawing or painting, I always loved to express myself in these creative ways. I earned a degree in Art in college and after graduating I worked with children as an art teacher for many years. I eventually evolved into a management role, where I soon realized I needed a change. I left, I traveled, I grew. I got in touch with my hearts desires. I came home and began to practice my craft with a camera.
I was hooked. I wanted to learn everything, I practiced always, I took classes, I took photos for friends, family, and of course for myself. These years were tough but so incredibly rewarding and transformative. I was scraping by but following my heart. I started to dig deeper. I loved how I could use photography as my voice, I felt I finally had a voice. In July of 2017, I was enrolled in a workshop where my assignment was to "shoot your last session ever". I wanted to do something that truly and deeply inspired me. I envisioned "intimate empowerment sessions for women" and it made my entire heart so excited. I did a photo session with a dear friend of mine who is a complete inspiration to me and it was an amazing honor to witness and capture her beauty, inside and out.
It dawned on me then, that what kept me going on my journey was seeing, hearing, and reading about other women who have transcended societal norms and paved their own way in life. I noticed that these stories passed on a flame of empowerment to me. It became clear to me that my passion was to share these stories through art. This path naturally lead to small business branding sessions, specializing in women owned wellness related businesses. It is my honor and privilege to support women as they work toward bringing their vision and passion into reality and sharing it with the world.
In this day in age, I feel we, as women, have a lot to say and I feel we should be bold in saying it. We are strong, independent, capable, intelligent, determined, and unbelievably beautiful warriors. I want to show that, I want to share that, I want to pass that empowerment on to the next woman so she can say "heck ya, I can do that too". This is where my passion began and why I am here today.
