sipping hot tea on my mornings off and burning candles for too long, while I try to convince my cat Nova not to destroy my apartment. I also spend copious amounts of time cuddling the cutest guy in the world (my handsome boyfriend Philip) while binge-watching Netflix (and being super mad that they keep removing Doctor Who). I’m a wedding and senior photographer, a painter, a storyteller, and a huge nerd.
I believe in handwritten letters. I believe in mermaids. I believe in the healing power of salt water: tears, sweat, and the ocean. I believe in the call of the moon. I believe that real is better than perfect. I believe in bear hugs and belly laughs. I believe in putting family first. I believe that words are stronger than swords. I believe in firm handshakes. I believe in being yourself. I believe in telling the truth even when your voice shakes. I believe in cuddling up with your favorite books. I believe that peanut butter is good for the soul. I believe animals are people too. I believe in putting out into the universe what you want to get back. I believe in cuddling. I believe in love. I believe in having big dreams. And I believe in you.
people who wish they could preserve the memories they are making every day in brighter and better ways than a flash drive forgotten in a kitchen drawer. For people who are looking for someone who will take their worries and stress away and make the entire process an experience and an adventure, rather than a chore. For people who are totally into laughing, having fun, being themselves, and hanging their memories on the wall.
I love serving the world by raising awareness for important issues such as mental disabilities, physical disabilities, equality, female empowerment, and a strong love and respect for animals. I want to help people feel heard, and cared about. The things I am most passionate about are my family, my friends, strong relationships with them, maintaining a healthy work ethic but knowing when to take the day off, and strong-scented candles. None of that weak crap for me. I want my WHOLE house to smell like bamboo jasmine on the daily, you got me??
I am lucky to inspire people to be themselves no matter the situation, be confident, be unique, be proud of themselves and their personalities and less-than-perfect bodies, and to be creative and inspiring themselves. When I'm not working on photography or art, you can find me listening to audio books on long drives, catching up on my favorite shows, spending hours upon hours scrolling through Pinterest, and dreaming of the ocean while I drink sweet lemon tea in my Disney’s Frozen socks, Doctor Who T-shirt, and minion pajama pants.

Natalie Portman is just the bomb-diggity. Not only is she in a host of my favorite movies (Where the Heart Is probably being my favorite among them), she is also an advocate for equal rights, a vegan, and pursued higher education despite not needing to due to her thriving acting career. She is an inspiration and prime role model for young women everywhere.
1. My favorite pizza toppings are pineapples, spinach, mushrooms, and black olives.
2. Naturally I’m a brunette but I think I should have been a ginger.
3. I have a love/hate relationship with my adorable plant-destroying cat.
4. I believe mermaids are real, y’all. I’m not even joking.
5. I regularly attend “Geeky Trivia Night” at my local board game cafe.
