About Me

I think photography is just about the coolest thing ever. The act of capturing the true essence of someone or something and freezing it in time is an unmatched feeling, and I get excited to hunt for that moment every time I pick up my camera. My approach to photography is just like me . . . easy going, creative and fun. I like my session to feel like we are hanging out for the day, and getting some great images while we’re at it. I grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio where I attended the School for Creative and Performing Arts. I have done everything from dancing in ballet companies, to writing, directing and choreographing theater, and continue to work as an actress today in Los Angeles.

How I Work

Whether you’re a natural in front of the camera or consider yourself camera-shy, having your picture taken can be an awkward experience for anyone. ‘Warm up time’ is crucial to help you relax, and you’ll have all the time you need. You’ll find I never rush or force things, but I do make sure you have a good time. Prior to our shoot, I invest a lot of thought and energy into how to best capture my subject and the environment best suited to showcase them. I have endless creative ideas and industry experience and knowledge. I take my work very seriously but never myself. I see myself as more than just a photographer – I’m equal parts director, actor, dancer, location scout and all around storyteller.

What I shoot

Whether you are a performer looking for a great headshot or promotional picture, a group, business or individual in need of a creative, unique conceptual photo for your personal or professional use, I bring fun and creativity to every shoot and love collaborating to create something special.
