“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” -ANAïS NIN
Raised military brat, I struggled greatly with a rooted sense of self identity & social
awkwardness. When I graduated High School in 2007, I was gifted my first DSLR. To put it
simply, this camera became the bridge between my hermit loner lifestyle & adventure
filled friendships. I sought out anyone and everyone who would let me photograph them.
We ventured down dirt roads, walked through old abandoned homes, & met up at 5am just
to catch perfect lighting. Through all of this, I learned about friendship & a passion for life.
Never being the relationship type, I ironically met my husband in 2013. Shortly after,
giving birth to our perfect little boy. To say I experienced identity crisis would be an
understatement. Things quickly slipped out of my control and landed me in a very dark
place. Desperate to help, my husband suggested I start photographing again.
After meeting with a client for maternity portraits one day, she asked me if I shot boudoir. .
. . THIS changed everything.
Since that client, I have shot over 100 boudoir sessions, rekindled the passion of mothers,
witnessed women overcome lost intimacy due to miscarriages, & also gained an all new
passion for my own life to become a better wife & mother. This is my passion…my super
power…the reason I breathe. I create beautiful images of beautiful, deserving souls. My
hopes are that my actions will inspire women to give themselves permission to feel sexy,
happiness, worth, & a passionate connection to their life and relationships.
