Northern Cali born and raised, I came to Miami by way of Idaho and Colorado. The truth is, I love the ocean and winter just isn’t my thing. Miami was the perfect choice for me. I love the weather and the active lifestyle, and to me, happiness is a quick drive in my convertible or a dip in the ocean. Since I love to do things a bit differently, I thought, “why not have TWO cities to call home?” New Orleans is so amazingly interesting and has such fabulous people that I couldn’t resist. So now you can find me bouncing back and forth between the two, with other fantastic locations, like NYC, Boston, California, and The Bahamas, thrown in!
Before you ask, no, I didn’t study photography in college. I had the pleasure of being surrounded by it my whole life: the fortunate result of a tech geek dad and an artist mother. I graduated school with a business degree ready to take on the world, but as fate (or Serendipity) would have it, you can’t escape destiny. I soon realized that both my passion and my degree could work together, and that owning my own business, doing what I love, was the best way to fulfill that aforementioned destiny. Twelve years later, and I’ve invested tons more into my professional education and truly refined my craft.
I guess that you can tell from all of the above that I am motivated and driven. True and all for good reason: I’m in love with love. I LOVE showing people how gorgeous they are and how beautiful their relationship is. I tend to get giddy when I get “THAT” shot. I might just talk about it, out loud, several times during a shoot. I’m addicted to being active and get a bit irritable if I have to avoid it for very long. I sing and dance and love musical theater, and I will sing just about any song that comes on the radio. I absolutely adore the love of my life, my can’t-be-cuter canine, Sam; a silky terrier who holds my heart and takes over my bed. He's been recently joined by a cute little bundle of energy, a miniature schnoodle named Honey. I’m fairly funny, and trust me, even funnier after a drink or two. Speaking of drinks, my favorite is Hendricks and tonic (in case you were wondering or want to bribe me). An avid sports fan, you will find me watching the Dolphins game on Sunday’s in the fall, and sometimes the Saints or Broncos, when necessary. I love meeting new people and spending time with friends, but I thrive on quiet evenings alone. I laugh a lot, love chocolate, donuts and cake, and have a slightly dirty mind. That’s me!
