Although I’m a nomad at heart and love nothing more than travelling around to document your wildest adventures, the one place that has always felt like home to me is with my husband [name]. When I’m not being your favorite third wheel, you can usually find us exploring a new national park in our camper van or down by the beach with a couple Topo Chicos and our golden retriever, Bodhi. 

I can’t wait to get to know your story too, and I’d be so honored to play a small part in helping you tell it.

I’ve always seen beauty everywhere, even where others might not take a second glance. As a little girl, I would pick bouquets of dandelions and leaves and collect pockets full of rocks I thought were pretty. As I got older, I continued to find the simple, wild, natural beauty to be the most inspiring kind. The Japanese have a word for it - wabi sabi - which roughly translates to an aesthetic of appreciating beauty that is imperfect and impermanent in nature.

Capturing those perfectly imperfect moments is what drove me to first pick up a camera, but human connection is what has kept me inspired all these years. I believe I was put on this Earth to notice and document those tiny moments that tell your story.

There’s no need for perfect poses, perfect weather, perfect outfits, or a perfect location to capture the perfect memory. It’s about a snapshot in time - those photos that allow you to hold a feeling in your hands.

The in-between moments, glances, crinkle-eye smiles, goosebumps.

In the words of Henry David Thoreau, “It’s not about what you look at. It’s what you see.” I believe in photographing those little things you might not even notice that capture your flow as a couple. The in-between moments, glances, crinkle-eye smiles, goosebumps. There’s nothing more beautiful and fascinating to me than the pure joy, excitement, and comfort of two people wildly in love.
