light chaser • photo taker • whiskey connoisseur

I picked up a camera while studying to be a sex therapist in Hawaii. I started my business at 19 and never looked back!

I grew up in a military family and I am always down to travel!

I’m engaged to an incredible human, mother to a 5 year old and two amazing 12 and 8 year old bonus kids!

You can find me grabbing coffee Downtown, singing and dancing in my car at stop lights, lifting heavy weights at the gym, or banging my head at a metal show.

 As a boudoir photographer I have photographed women of all shapes and sizes, of all cultures, of all backgrounds. These women are doctors and lawyers. They are nurses and therapists. They are sales goddesses and entrepreneurs. They are mothers and wives. They are just like you and me. I have met women who come with a lot of insecurities and leave a brand new person.

What I do is important and I want to share it with the world.

I strongly feel that every woman should have a boudoir session because we deserve to be celebrated. We are daughters, sisters, mothers, wives, best friends, and lovers. We juggle many roles throughout our lives and often need a moment to find ourselves again, free from any labels.

I may have set sex therapy aside for the moment, but I am loving this journey. Photography is its own form of therapy and I look forward to exploring it with you.

Please feel free to browse through my website and learn a bit more about what I do :)

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

When I was 14 I told my very conservative mother that I wanted to be a sex therapist. I didn't know it then, but that choice would set me on the path that I find myself on today. While studying psychology in Hawaii I stumbled upon photography. It was there that my love was born. I don't know if it was the beautiful lands surrounding me or the beautiful people, but I knew that the changes that I felt with my clients was something that would stick with me and launch me to where I am today.

I have since put my plans to become a sex therapist on hold while I take a risk and let passion guide me. Over the last five years I have had the pleasure of photographing hundreds of women and being able to share in their secrets, laugh with them, and help them on their journey towards self-love.

The passion that burned inside the fourteen year old me to help individuals and couples on their path towards confidence, being able to express their sexuality, and being able to express their passion to their lovers is something that has never faded. Photography has allowed me to give my clients the gift of self-acceptance. We have been able to take a journey on rediscovering oneself and exploring what society feels should stay hidden. I firmly feel that unrestrained passion is what makes for beautiful souls. 

my life motto:

fuck what they think

How i started

He came into my life when I least expect it. I was freshly separated from my ex and out of a 13 year old emotionally abusive relationship. I was looking for fun and adventure. I defffinitely wasn't looking for a relationship!

We matched on Bumble. He said he was looking for his caramel Morticia Addams and I have a weakness for bald men with tattoos. We met the next day and have been inseparable ever since. 

I have never met a person with a heart as pure and loving. He is compassionate, driven, hard working, and loving as all hell. He's the most amazing father I've ever met and he is my favorite partner in life.

He goes out of his way to let me know he appreciates me every single day. He is my number one supporter and he inspires me to be a better person everyday.

We bonded over our love of heavy metal and bourbon. He's my favorite concert buddy and adventure partner. I love our weekly coffee dates, where we just sit and talk about anything and everything. 

We gross our kids out with our incessant butt grabbing and life isn't normal if we don't hear "Get a room!" from somebody around at least once a day, be it our kids or random strangers at the gym. 

We are getting married on Halloween 2020 and I cannot wait to say "I Do"!

THIS DUDE

i LOVE THESE DORKS.

I'M THE MOMMA TO A RAMBUNCTIOUS 5 YEAR OLD AND BONUS MOM TO AN OUTSPOKEN 12 YEAR OLD AND CURIOUS 8 YEAR OLD.

THERE IS NEVER A DULL MOMENT IN OUR HOUSE. BETWEEN WRESTLING, SOCCER, AND ACTING CLASS, OUR WEEKS ARE FILLED WITH ACTIVITIES. 

EACH OF THEM HAVE THEIR OWN UNIQUE PERSONALITIES AND IT HAS BEEN SO FUN WATCHING THEM ALL GROW INTO THEIR SELVES.

OUR HOME HAS BECOME THE NEIGHBORHOOD KIDS PLACE TO HANG AND I LOVE IT!

MY BABIES

I grew up a military brat and traveling is just in my blood. We completed many cross country road trips. It wasn't until I was an adult that I ventured out of the country.

I love immersing myself in other cultures, whether it be the streets of New York City or the beaches of Guam. 

There is a high probability that I'm on the road on the weekends, be it a quick trip to Richmond or away hiking in the mountains. 

I'm always down to go anywhere!

Traveling to Norway has been on my bucket list since I was a teen and I cannot wait to make it there one day!

I was definitely the weird goth kid in high school.

I started listening to metal in middle school and it forever changes my life.

I love to bang my head and explore bands from all over the world. 

Phil proposed to me during the middle of a Slayer concert.

This past summer, I was able to meet and photograph my favorite band and it was one of top life experiences. 

I also love classic rock, reggae, oldies, you name it. But metal has my heart.
