For me, photography is all about connecting.
My camera connects me to the people, places and things around me through the intimate relationship of photographer and subject. It is my aim to illuminate my subject, be it a couple, a family, an individual or a flower petal in a way that is honest and authentic, in turn, revealing a part of their essence.
After graduating with a BA in International Relations and Photography from The University of North Florida in 2001, I pursued a career in documentary photography while interning with two non-profits in Guatemala City, Guatemala where I worked teaching photography to street children. This experience led me back to the states where I transitioned my documentary approach into a career as an editorial, wedding and portrait photographer.
I’m currently based in Jacksonville, Florida, balancing life as a traveling photographer and mother to two beautiful daughters!
