lover. mama. artist. fighter.
Heyy ya'll! My life is an insane balance of motherhood, entrepreneurship, and adventuring with my dark and handsome ;) Usually, love stories don’t begin with “I first noticed her after she throat-punched me...” but it’s US. And I love us. A couple of black eyes and busted lips later, we’re self-defense instructors, life-long partners and parents together. Our daughter is a ray of sunshine and keeps us laughing every.single.day and her eyelashes are honestly infamous.
Most days, you'll find me in yoga pants and a messy bun, while seeming to never finish that cup of coffee I've reheated a.million.times. I cannot live without sunshine and am desperately trying to keep my plant babies alive and happy. *fingers crossed* and YES. I know I'm short ---where my fellow shorties at?!--- but it's cool, I've got my trusty lil step-stool with me.
But real talk; being a creative is this awesome struggle of impulsive bursts of art and ideas coupled with the realism of paying bills and managing responsibilities. There's highs and lows in this creative journey and I am learning to embrace each moment. Trying to keep it real and honest on the social with dialogue of body positivity, community over competition and sharing love.
the lifestyle approach
Photography is not a side hustle for me; its a lifestyle. When I began capturing people and moments with my lens, I knew I wanted to take how I viewed the world and people + how they shared their stories and lives and develop it into a unique vision. This lead me onto a journey of finding what sets my soul on fire. Empowering women and capturing the FIRE and PASSION in your love story -- THAT sets my heart ablaze.
So forget the posed, stiff smiles. Hello to the little touches. The passionate kisses. The laughing til you cry moments. I want to become your friend, not some stranger that shows up and awkwardly third-wheels your love story. NOPE. I wanna be that chic behind the camera swooning over your cuddles and cheering on those kisses :D and its okay because we get each other. We've shared our stories, we've been talking about the shoot for weeks, and the excitement is ALL THERE. I am a photographer for those who love deeply, live intentionally and value passion and adventure. My style is warm and moody; genuine photos of raw moments that tell a story. And that's what I do, I'm here to tell YOUR story. Feel like we'd be friends or a good match? Lets chat!
