“I began to realize how important it is to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed, embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Luke warm is no good!”  -Roald Dahl-

I am a nerd, like a huge nerd. I have read every single Roald Dahl book and love to live my life with a childlike wonder. I listen to audiobooks on social psychology all day long. I love food so much that I bounce a little when I talk about cooking. I get way too excited about any animal that I get to hold, and I can’t help but kiss and hug everyone’s baby all the time.

My mind is always thinking about light and composition, when I see a beautiful scene, I imagine how it will look from a photographic perspective. During road trips, I often find myself pulling over when there’s beautiful light to be captured.

I love people so much! It’s cheesy, but it’s true. I’m a mother to my beautiful daughter, Lyla, and spend my free time surrounded by my amazing family and friends. Being around and meeting new people provides me with so much energy and happiness. My career is a dream come true on so many levels. Capturing images with the beauty of natural light is so deeply ingrained in me, there isn’t an hour that goes by that I’m not thinking about it. I’ve travelled around the world, spending time with incredible people and capturing some of their most intimate and joyful moments. I feel ridiculously fortunate to be able to experience life this way.

I would love to capture you and get to know you. Send me a note and let’s chat.
