To me, photography is about capturing a feeling, bottling it up and releasing it again when you need a gentle reminder of the way of yesterday. Our stories are endless but each gentle moment is fleeting. It is my passion to freeze time. To slow it down. To give you something that you can look back on and relive the moments in heart. Just as our lives are ever-changing, my ideas, visions and hopes as a photographer are constantly evolving.
I love to shoot photos and write. It is the best way I know to speak to the world, and about the world, around me. I am a storyteller, with a documentary approach. I long to capture authentic, candid moments of love and family. I also love collaborating with artists, musicians and professionals to create portraits that speak YOU and your personal style. I'd describe my style as bold, rich and earthy. I am on a constant quest for visual truth. I believe all emotions are beautiful and help us to feel alive. Our most authentic selves are not always smiling but rather feeling and expressing through a deep range of emotions.
I'm entranced by the way the details of a story capture me and steal me off to another place. Another time. Another land. I want to go there with you. And I will certainly travel to get there. I love seeing the world and shooting in new places.
I want to dance to the rhythm. I want to build community and plant myself a part of it. I want to learn and teach. Listen and grow. The ocean and the mountains silence my racing mind. I'm in awe of God. And Love. God is Love. In my free time you will find me writing, practicing ukulele, chasing waterfalls with my two boys, dancing to the music, trail running and staring at the sky.
I'd love to hear your story. Let's plan some time together.
