I'm a one-camera gal with a pretty nice lens and a little bit of software - my operation is small and personal. I'm a self-taught photographer, studying those I consider masters for inspiration and insight. My work is not prolific or perfect, by any means, at this point in my life (check back with me when I'm 80) - I'm in a perpetual state of learning and evolving - and hopefully producing some images people like along the way.

Unless I'm shooting dancers on a stage, I love shooting in natural light - and not just because I don't own a studio or any lighting equipment! I adhere to the "less is more" idea when taking photographs. It's just my preferred aesthetic. I like to keep things simple, organic, and relaxed and always strive to capture absolute authenticity in my subjects. I believe a photograph is as much about the subject as it is about the photographer.

I'm so happy to be able to share my current work with everyone (thank you, technology!) and hopefully I'll have the opportunity to create more work with families, actors, dancers, and anyone (or anything!) who will let me photograph them - I'm looking at you, mountain gorillas!

I reside in Los Angeles, California with my fiancé, Lee, and our two spoiled cats, Pete & Gene.

More tidbits:

  • Native to Houston, Texas
  • Lover of pizza, Game of Thrones, large mammals, vintage American pottery, all things British, Viggo Mortensen, and telling the world to spay and neuter pets!
  • And here's a giant, dramatic photo of me in case you're wondering what I look like. (although, I look very different while eating a sandwich)
