I am a lifestyle photographer. I specialize in engagements, couples, families, and baby portraits.I avoid overly posing my subjects and aim to capture natural moments. I love to get to know my clients and capture their true personality. My favorite photos are those organic 'in-between' moments.
I have been practicing photography for over 10 years. While I adore the arts, I also have a passion for STEM. I have a degree in engineering and during my schooling I honed my technical and creative skills through my design classes. I now work full time as a mechanical engineer.
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
a little more about me...
CAT AND CRAFT ADDICT
When I am not at work, I am usually creating or designing something. Whether it be a craft, home improvement, or a new recipe, I am obsessed with making things and learning new skills. I am constantly watching YouTube how-to videos and picking up new projects. My most recent projects include: learning about graphic design, creating stained glass pieces, embroidering, baking bread and cooking.
I have two cats, Mrs. Meow and The Big Chungus, and I love them too much. I have always been a crazy cat lady, but when I grow old I want to extend my love of all creatures and start a small farm. I would love to create a home for misfit animals of all sorts: goats, chickens, llamas, you name it.
My main analog loves are film photography and vinyl records. Whenever I travel I always bring my film camera. Shooting on film is more raw and true to life. It captures the world in a way that digital can't. There is a physical component to both film and vinyl that forces you to be invested in what you are doing. I like to be immersed in what I do.
