Been making life beautiful since '95

Real talk. My life is an insane balance of motherhood, entrepreneurship, instructing, and cuddling up on the couch playing xbox with my dark and handsome ;) Most days, I work from my couch as a graphic artist and photographer with my hair in a messy bun and a cup of coffee in front of me which I never seem to finish!  I cannot live without sunshine and spend most afternoons outside sprawled on a quilt with my daughter who never ceases to make me laugh. 

Most people describe their first impression of me as this short, barefoot, tattooed girl kicking ass and then teaching others to do the same. I've been an instructor for Krav Maga since 2014 and nothing is as exhilarating or empowering than challenging your mind, body and soul in intense training. On the flip side, others have commented that they were attracted to this genuineness about me when we first met that allowed them to feel open and comfortable with me. "We instantly clicked," they say. And I believe that is my greatest gift; empathy.  

My photography style? It's striking, raw, and genuine. I want to capture this scene in your life's story, to tell all the angles and plot twists of this moment. I'm not looking for forced smiles or awkward poses. Trust me, I've been there and the last thing I want is for you to feel uncomfortable or silly.  I'm looking for the lingering, loving look on your fiancΓ©'s face because the only thing in their world is you.  The hopeful glow of a new senior, smiling as they get ready to take on the world.  Every tired, happy smile you share as new parents and the love you have for your new life. The confident smile playing on your lips as you admire the lace and straps accentuating the beauty of your own body. 

Years from now, I want you to look back on these moments and get goosebumps remembering all the little things about that moment in time. I want every photo to be rich in bold tones, vividly capturing your genuine emotion.
