About Me

You’re here because you’re looking for something more than those basic smile and look at the camera photos. You want something that honors the season you’re in, in an artistic and authentic way. Something creative, but still timeless. 

My Approach

The most important thing for your photos, is that they are authentic to you. 

I treat every project as a true collaboration-investing in really getting to know you, and documenting in a way that is uniquely and beautifully you!

My photography approach is a mix of photo journalistic (fancy term for candid/documentary/storytelling style), with cinematic, editorial, and creative.

The images we create together will be something that you’ll be able to look back on in 1, 2, 40 years from now, and be transported right back to that season of life.  You will be given gentle guidance with prompts, and I will make sure that you feel comfortable and effortless in front of the camera.  Love those energetic and heavy movement based captures? Let’s do it. Do you have a more quiet type of joy? I love that too.

We live in a world full of a lot of noise distraction, and instant gratification. You are invited into a space where we can slow down, be inspired on location, and create something really special and meaningful. 

Together.

You’ll get a mix of images that will bring you right back to how the day felt-you’ll feel the sun on your skin, you’ll feel the salty air, you’ll smell the tropical flowers that Hawaii is famous for.

MEET THE ARTIST

I combine my top two superpowers-making people feel comfortable + at ease, and creativity. I still can’t believe that I get to combine these two core pieces of me, and turn that into a career that I love so much.

Now for some of the basic stuff!-I live on Oahu, Hawaii with my husband Andrew and three kids-two boys and a baby girl. We live an active lifestyle and are outdoors as much as possible!-all the beach days, hikes, paddle boarding, and just sitting out in the sun. I’m an introverted enneagram 7 which basically means I am very excited for all the things!- and love exploring/all the new experiences with people that I genuinely connect with. I started a career in occupational therapy, and after a few years realized that my heart was really truly in creating. Our marriage is one of the biggest blessings, and getting to document couples seasons of love is just the absolute best.

Does this resonate with you?
