Some say photography takes something away from the moment. To me, pressing the shutter let's me live closer to the moments and the people in them.
I love the feeling of honoring beauty in things, in moments, in places , in nature and above all…..honoring the inner spirit of people. The space that exists with a person or a couple when I am photographing them is exquisite to me. My background as an actress and Video Producer makes for an easy, fun and sometimes ridiculous atmosphere. I have a knack for getting my clients to truly have fun on the shoot, to let go of their resistance and be present. I make them laugh and relax in a way that comes easily to me. There is a dynamic of photographer and subject that is peaceful and in total agreement. I learn so many people and their stories through the lens, I experience travel, the ever-changing beauty of light and above all the emotion of being alive.
As a kid I loved going to the Drugstore to get my film developed. I remember the eager anticipation as I awaited the date I could pick them up and pull the pile of photos out of the envelope for the big “reveal.” It was a magical process to me. As a Photographer I am artist and a storyteller. Capturing life in imagery is how I choose to live it. I know I am leaving something good and meaningful behind. It is joy for me to know that the photographs I take for my clients will live on for them... to reflect on the beauty of their lives and for them to share through generations.
