Why I do what I do…

My mission as a portrait photographer is to create an empowering photographic experience that positively impacts your self-view and leaves you with a spark of confidence you can carry forward into your business and your life.

Do you ever feel like you’re not photogenic? Or like you’re just awkward in front of the camera? Or maybe like it’s not even possible to get a beautiful photo taken of yourself? The truth is that it’s not your job to “be photogenic.” It’s my job to see you, direct you, and make you feel at ease during your photoshoot.

The result will be authentic images where you can feel the connection and see your unique beauty. I’ve spent years perfecting this art so I’m able to focus on your experience – keeping the shoot lighthearted & stress-free. It will, change the way you feel about being photographed.
