I try to cultivate a warm, lush style, that brings out rich colors, and rays of sunlight! I also adore black and white photos!

My chief focus is that you're comfortable during our session! I want you to look natural, and I aim for a
candid look in posing. I want to let your natural quirkiness and personality be the star!  


These are just some of my favorites over the years that will help you get a taste of my style
