About me

Based in the picturesque landscapes of Healdsburg, California, I am on a mission to unveil the beauty of genuine moments and create meaningful connections through photography. I was born and raised in Wisconsin, grew up in Chicago, and I have been pursuing happiness in Northern California since 1997.

As a child, I was always carrying around a camera, documenting moments people share has been my lifelong passion. Becoming a mom has been the most profound gift I’ve ever received. As my daughter, Amelia, navigates her senior year of high school, she remains my enduring inspiration and unwavering muse. Amidst our journey, I’ve learned the art of pausing, treasuring each fleeting moment we share together. While coaxing her in front of the camera has become a rare occurrence these days, the photographs I do manage to capture hold immeasurable value to me. They encapsulate the core of our bond, preserving memories that will last a lifetime.

At the heart of my work is the belief that everyone has a unique and compelling story to share. Through portraits, branding, and lifestyle photography, I strive to capture the essence of individuals and brands, empowering them to embrace their true selves and celebrate their journey. With a passion for adventure and a keen eye for detail, I seek to create visual narratives that go beyond the surface, revealing the depth and authenticity of each subject. Whether it’s a candid portrait, a compelling brand image, or a snapshot of everyday life, my goal is to ignite a sense of empowerment and self-expression in those who view my work. I invite you to join me on this journey of exploration and connection. Whether you’re an individual looking to express your true self or a brand seeking to authentically engage with your audience, together we can craft stories that resonate on a deep, meaningful level. Thank you for considering me to be a part of your story. Feel free to reach out and start a conversation about how we can collaborate to bring your authentic narrative to life through the art of photography. Let’s embark on this adventure together.
