I am a visual empowerment specialist. Through Photography I empower women to discover their confidence and self-love. I show them the true beauty of their essence and capture them as the masterpiece they are.


I have always been able to see the beauty in the world around me. I believe that all women are beautiful and deserve a beautiful portrait. My purpose, through my art, is to not only empower each and every client who steps in front of my lens but to reflect back to them the beauty I see.   I  know how hard we can be on ourselves as women.  


Most of my clients tell me they hate photos of themselves,  that they aren’t photogenic.  The truth is, that is my job.  I pose you, light you, guide you, and help style you in the most beautiful way possible.  I help you fall in love with yourself and see the power within you.


I am constantly growing and evolving as an artist.  I continually take courses from the best photographers in the world.  From in-person training to online mentorship, I am pushing my own work to the level of other world-class photographers.  This allows me to bring my knowledge and expertise to each and every session, and provide you with the best professional images in the industry.


I was born an artist, and live to create.  I’m inspired by ancient myths and lore as well as modern fantasy. my personal work reflects this love of the imaginary.  Often I will work with a client if she has a specific vision and create a fine art piece during her regular session.   I love creating unique art, with you as my muse.  So whether you are looking for something sensual, classic, vintage or even fantastical, I love bringing your dreams and visions to life!
