About

I'm a Michigan native who's been happily residing on the Central Coast of California since 2014. I thrive in the sun. I've been taking pictures since the early 2000s when you could buy those disposable Kodak cameras in the grocery store checkout line. However, I didn't really start pursuing it as a profession until a few years ago.

I have a B.S. in Geography and Environmental Studies, and worked in the nonprofit/conservation field before switching gears for personal and family reasons. I recently had a baby girl and wanted a profession that would allow me to be more creative and spend more time with her. I love being outdoors, exploring new places, eating, drinking, and hanging with my people (husband, daughter & pup) pictured below.

Photography calls to me for many reasons. I love creating things and capturing connection between people. I love light. And I really love the nostalgia when looking through photo albums; the feelings and smells and memories that come rushing back. One of my favorite things to do as a kid was look through my parents' old photo albums of their travels, pre-children. Photos allow you to hold onto and even re-live moments in life---big and small and everything in between. Because that's what life is made of, right?
