I’m a documentary photographer.
Authenticity and love fuel my work and life purpose. Just like you, I value excellence and soul: I’m not a fan of trends, tropes, or mediocrity. Your photos won’t look like everyone else’s, because you aren’t like everyone else. You live your life boldly from a foundation of love (for yourself, your beloved, and your passions) and you want pictures that match your truth.
I help individuals (who love themselves), couples (who love each other), and creative business owners (who love their work) tap into their own authenticity and creativity. Whether through honest wedding photos that celebrate your quirks and your deep love for your community… stunning boudoir photos that remind you how you feel in your sexiest moments… or soulful headshots that let your inspiration in your work really shine through.
For over a decade I’ve worked as a professional photographer. My projects have taken me across the world and have earned me multiple awards. I studied Photojournalism at The University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill and after graduation started my own photography business. I’ve been shooting weddings and helping people tell their stories ever since. In 2012 I co-founded a second company, The Birth Collective, which provides birth photography and advocacy journalism for mothers, doulas, and childbirth educators.
I now live in the North Carolina Triangle (Raleigh – Durham – Chapel Hill), and have strong ties to California and the Midwest. I love to travel, and am available to go wherever you are to tell your story! When not eyeball-deep in photography, you’ll probably find me biking in the great outdoors, trying a new dance class with friends, painting, or traveling. My deepest joy is found in exploring (whether it’s new ideas, the world, or my own creativity) and connecting (with my community, my family, and my friends). Also, the pelvis is my power symbol.
