Welcome to my page-- I don't bite ;) I'm a social butterfly, love connecting and talking to new people, and am very goofy and fun-loving! I'm a total artist at heart-- I'm a professional ballet dancer by trade, I sing/write, and I've always had an eye for the finer details, so I've naturally gravitated towards cameras and photography as another creative outlet!


Now I've gotten a DSLR camera of my own, and would love to utilize my knowledge of being in front of the lens to get some great results from behind it! I've spent a while being in front of the camera, working with various dance photographers and lifestyle photographers alike, so I'm very body aware and can help with posing and making you feel more at ease in front of the camera.


I love getting creative and spontaneous with shoots to achieve the highest result possible, using a combination of intuition, our surroundings, and just having a plain ol' good time with my camera subject!


I'm open to shooting absolutely anything (clothing and location changes welcome), and would love to hear your shoot ideas!


See ya from behind the lens :-)

Awards, honors and recognition

Since photography has made its way back into my life a little more recently, I haven't submitted my work for any awards or recognition just yet. However, when I was in the 8th grade, a still photograph of roses I captured made it into Laguna Beach's Festival of the Arts and Pageant of the Masters as an honorable mention!

A fun fact about me

I've danced in a sloth costume for Sacha Robotti, a DJ friend of mine, at two of his shows! We got to dance like actual sloths, very slow and ultra-comedically, to more upbeat music. We were a crowd favorite! Both experiences were such a blast-- definitely big highlights! :) I've also gotten to check skydiving off the bucketlist and THAT was awesome :) Have you been skydiving?
