A California native born, raised, and based in the beautiful coastal city of Monterey.
As the daughter of a landscape architect and a writer, I grew up surrounded by artistically minded people with an eye for design and a penchant for storytelling. Photography has afforded me a place in this proud tradition, which I do my best to uphold.
I fell in love with photography during a trip to Scotland while visiting a family friend on the picturesque Isle of Islay, where I ended up commandeering my mother's camera to try and capture the essence of the island to share with friends back home. My mother ended up gifting me that same camera for my birthday and I have been pursuing the craft ever since.
In my journey with photography in the professional realm I have found documenting details sparks the most creative joy. From capturing the essence of an individual in a single portrait to highlighting the craftsmanship of a simple charcuterie board feels right.
For many creatives, there is self-confessed obsession with beauty and perfection (guilty). However, these ideals, if applied for their sakes alone, have no value beyond the surface. While it is my goal to create beautiful images, I want to ensure they convey the story of the subjects, regardless of them being products or persons. If the adage of finding beauty in small moments holds true, that is perfection to me.
