I’m a sometimes half-marathon runner and a lover of mexican food. I’m sarcastic and a straight shooter. I believe that there’s few things that can’t be solved with a long drive with the windows down and the music up. I’m fiercely loyal.
I understand the power of memories and preserving them. How a photograph can pull you in two directions at once. How it has the power to make you smile and break your heart all at once.
I’m scared to forget, so I use my camera to make sure I can always remember. How I capture my own family is how I capture everyone I work with. What’s real. The authentic. All the emotion. That’s what I focus on. It’s what matters.
I believe in authenticity over perfection.
I have a master’s degree in Student Affairs and Higher Education and I spent over 10 years working in Higher Education (residence life and student conduct) before deciding five years go to leave my career to stay at home with my boys and pursue my dream of becoming a full-time photographer.
I believe that it’s never too late to decide who you want to become.
