At the core of everything I do is love. For me, it is the most integral part of life - to experience it, to show it and to document it. My heart is most at home when witnessing and photographing organic connections, in a space where vulnerability is welcome.
The older I get the more I lean into my yearning for solitude - from the pulls of life, the noise and busyness to be whole-heartedly present with those I love. I understand it’s importance and that is why my desire is to create this space for the wonderful families who’s stories I have been entrusted to tell. Life lends itself to being busy but I find the real work, the meaningful work often takes place in these moments of stillness and slowness.
Art has a wonderful way of evoking emotion and speaking truths that word alone cannot. It has been one of the greatest blessings and helped me navigate various phases of life - acting as a portal into my past and a canvas for my thoughts. Since becoming a mother and wife I have a deeper understanding of time’s fleeting nature and the lasting desire to slow time so we can wholly embrace the now. Everything I create exists as an extension of myself and what I love most - and that is documenting these fragile moments, the kind we will long to experience once more. I am sentimental to my very core and believe photography and art are one of the most beautiful methods of preserving what is important not only to me but you also. If our paths, by chance, do align and I am privileged enough to witness the unfolding of your unique love story, I am truly grateful and cannot wait to meet you.
Oh how I wish I could craft a way to bottle every moment
Tenderly wrap it, gift it, when the memory begins to soften
Organic connections and youthful glances, painted on sheets of cotton
In the hope, that through my lens, they will never be forgotten
