Capturing your relationship in it's purest form is the most important part of my job, and this is something I always carry with me while shooting.
My goal as a photographer is to bring out the beauty and intimacy that nobody sees.
This is your time to remember the day that you and your best friend are united for the rest of your life, and I want to be there to capture it for you.
These images should act as a profession of the adoration you have for each other. I will do everything in my power to help you connect with your partner on a deeper level. I don't want your session to just be a photoshoot, I want it to be a reflection of your ceaseless love. My main purpose in life is to help people comprehend how immensely powerful it is to love and be loved in return.
I just love love.
So what will I capture that others won't? I want to capture the affection that is only showed in private, but in a delicate way. I want to create a wonder that is almost mysterious. I want to give a peek into something nobody else will understand but the two of you. Most importantly, I want you to reminisce on that moment. To be transported in time back to the awareness of peace you feel with each other. I want to leave you with a drive to feel that serenity, that intimacy, with each other every single day while your souls combine.
It’s amazing to think that we have the potential to be so many different kinds of people. I want to be all of them.
There is something so beautiful in the movement of the human body. The connection we feel to others. It's wondrous to me how there are certain people that we connect with on a profound level. The intimacy we only show to that one person, the one soul that the connection is so deep and so mutually understood. You've found that. You have the person who you can call your own, who will always be there with you even when they're not. That is so beautiful. When I was young, I asked my mother how she knew that she loved my father and she said through tears, "He's my best friend." Ever since that day I knew exactly what I was searching for.
I've been a photographer for seven years, but originally I was a writer. Art has always been a significant part of my life. I wrote my first novel at the age of thirteen (not that it was very good!) and I always believed I would be an author someday. I still believe I might. Because of this, I feel photography is an extension of my love of story telling. Being able to tell someones story through photographs and purely capture their emotion, there is something so raw about it. At a young age I became obsessed with the ability to connect with sentiment living deep inside someone and a deeper meaning in life. I feel as though photography has brought me closer to that.

I have a thirst for knowledge, and therefore learning about something different from what I know is fascinating to me. There's a feeling certain cultures give you that we don't have in America, and I want to explore them all.
From literature to dancing, museums to tattoos, I love it all. I could never picture myself being anything but an artist. It's truly deep in my soul and something I will never tire of. It's a community I will always feel at home in.
I'm that person who loves long car rides. Wanna go on a road trip? I'm down!
Though I've never been on a plane (I know!), I've always wanted to travel overseas. My top two places to visit are France and Japan!
Meet Ikarus! This girl right here is my best friend in the entire world and I have no idea what I would do without her. I've had as many as six animals at once and even though my mother called it the zoo I was in heaven!
I'm hugely family oriented, probably because I have such an amazing family! I've always considered my mom one of my best friends and this adorable guy here is my wonderful nephew Carson! The more lovin' I can give to this little guy the better. And I'm so excited to have three new nieces! And guess what, I only have one sister! Yup, she had triplets! I couldn't be more excited to see Quinn, Dani & Ozzy grow alongside their wonderful, loving big brother!
I would like to live a life where saying I love you is redundant. One that makes it so clear I really do but must say it anyway in fear it might burst from me, might cause a scene, might split me in two.
Objects that are really tiny and cute.
Things that are lived in. I love antiques for this reason.
The sound of a singing bowl.
Long deep conversations with your partner or loved one.
Songs that really hit home.
When you laugh so hard your stomach hurts.
That feeling when you're so happy all you can do is cry.
Friends who run to you when you need them.
When strangers call you pet names like honey and sweetheart.
The color yellow.
When animals head butt you when they want some lovin'.
Feeling something like it's the first time all over again.
Being tired after a long day in the sun.
Making the most mundane things feel more romantic and intimate.
La langue française.
The feeling of fingertips softly stroking skin.
Old fashioned dresses that make you feel like you should be sitting in the middle of a field reading.
Going on drives to clear your mind.
Animals curled up so they look really small.
When people randomly start dancing when they're happy.
Dancing in general!
When the grass starts to turn green again in springtime.
Meeting someone for the first time and having an instant connection.
When you finish a book and all you can do is hold it to your heart and mourn the loss of the characters you grew so close to.
