i've always loved the way good books and song lyrics can so intricately, perfectly describe our thoughts and emotions, but there's something about being able to SEE, to express thoughts in a tangible, visible way, that never fails to make my heart pound and renders me speechless.



creating emotional, heartfelt imagery is so much more to me than a means of outward, artistic expression.

it was a new, exciting creative outlet when i was uncertain of what the future would look like, post-high school. it saved me from having deeply severe post-partum depression after my daughter was born. it has brought some of my closest, most important friends into my life. it continues to be an incredible way to not only find new perspectives, but also to connect with and to serve people from different cultures and walks of life, across the world!


i'm going to be honest with you: life is messy, and taking photos can be way outside of your comfort zone; believe me, i completely get it! but my deepest, sincerest hope for you is this: as we go along and get to know one another, i hope that you feel comfortable enough with me to shed your fears, your doubts, your insecurities without even realising it's happened; and that we become really good friends by the end of our time together. because i cannot tell your story with YOU.



because who you are matters.

neither you nor i exist only to live in or to be known in tiny, perfect little squares that may feel, some days, like they define us. they DON'T. those spaces don't hold in them the full story, the in-between, the reality. i want to see and document those things. so please come without any preconceived notions of perfection, and come just as you are.



your time with me doesn't need to be extravagant or Instagram-worthy; it just needs to reflect who YOU are.

so, if you want to take some photos in your favorite place, whether that's a little unsuspecting cafe down the street or the metro platform where you happened to meet your person the first time or just a place you love for no particular reason, instead of where you think you're supposed to, LET'S DO IT!!



my process

as your photographer, i intentionally curate and hand edit all of my images, from start to finish, meaning that i never just slap a preset on them and go! furthermore, my perfectionist-level attention to detail ensures that you receive photos that will stand the test of time! remember: good things take time! it'll be worth it, i promise!
