I believe in real moments and chasing sunsets. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come. 

I began capturing images on film at the age of 22 when I discovered my dad’s old Pentax in the attic. The limited amount of images on a roll of film forced me to put my camera phone down and really observe the beauty in the world, and the people around me. 

Whenever I pick up my camera, I strive to create beautiful and emotional images that tell a story and showcase the beauty of both the people in the images and the world around them. 

Even with it’s ups and downs, your life, your story, are beautiful and I can’t wait to create images to show that!

As a creative, I find BEAUTY in the details.

I always loved photography. I remember as a child my older sister would buy me a new camera every year. At the time I didn’t know how passionate I was going to become about photography. All I wanted was to capture every single moment including photographing my younger sisters walking down to the school bus pickup stop.

I grew up and ended up studying Technical Communication and there I purchased my first Nikon camera. I started writing and capturing photos of my city in Austin, TX for my blog class.

I also became a model and actress. Who would of thought that shy little girl could put herself out there in front of the eyes of the public. Well, I did and I loved it. It was my escape to experience art in the form of becoming anything I wanted and come back to being myself again.  Being in front of the lens taught me confidence, posing techniques, how to be natural and most importantly to be myself.

I lived in the moment and capture the beauty that I saw everywhere.

THE HEART

behind the photos

I had to seek inside my heart what makes me happy, what fills my life with joy and purpose.

I’m a creative person by nature, I love drawing and painting, design, and photography. Yet I wasn’t happy just creating. I needed to find my reason to create.

If I was going to stay with photography I needed to find my reason to photograph and spread love, joy, tell a story and make a difference in someone’s life.  Seeing someone look at their photographs with pride and love made me realize I wanted to continue to do this for them.

I see that every person has a story they want to tell when they inquire about portraits. Pregnant women want to create memories of the life they carry within them and it is my pleasure to document that wonderful blessing.  Some don’t feel really like themselves and come to me because they want to feel beautiful being pregnant so they request a full makeover session. Some want to be reminded that they are beautiful in their own skin and want to see it through my lense. 

I believe every woman is beautiful and there is only one of them in the world. I want to help enhance their beauty and their real selves. In front of my lense women are free to be themselves, they are free to laugh, to sing, to dance, to jump and act silly. I am here to tell the story they want me to tell.

So I decided to focus in woman photography to tell their stories.
