About my journey…

If you had told me a year ago I would fall in love with self portraiture I would have said you were crazy. I’m way more comfortable behind the camera than in front if it, but after a year of trying to have a baby I was finally pregnant. I realized that in order for me to get the images I wanted, to document this last pregnancy the way I envisioned, I was going to have to create them myself. So there began my journey into the art of self portraiture and something amazing happened, I found my creative voice.

I no longer relied on my children to create, or the hiring from clients, I was able to create art all on my own. It has pushed my boundaries of vision, styling, emotional connection, creative expression, storytelling, and understanding light in ways I never imagined. I now have documented almost a year of myself with my family. My children will see me IN their pictures, not just behind the camera, and I am beyond grateful to look back and have these memories.

I specialize in intimate motherhood, focusing on the connection between mom and her baby, and offer a unique style of editing.
