THIS IS A STORY ALL ABOUT HOW...

shoutout to the 80s babies who immediately rapped the rest of that iconic theme in your heads...

I don't remember the first time I picked up a camera. But one of my earliest memories is of my dad's Pentax: a heavy, beautiful, silver and black piece of machinery that always had a bit of an enigmatic draw. I went off to college in pursuit of a "real job" because living ones passion is for the gifted and financially free--or so I thought. While in college (Sic 'Em Baylor Bears!), as I studied the brain and behavior, I picked up a camera, some film, and walked into my first photojournalism course. And I fell in love. I fell in love in the dark room as I watched my film come to life. I fell in love with the ability to capture, not just a beautiful image, but a moment and feeling in time. To conjure a memory. To evoke a visceral emotional reaction. I've always been a heavy consumer of art in all its forms; and poetry and writing, music, and films are the thumbprints of my work.

I have undergraduate work in photojournalism, graduate work in journalism, and a whole entire graduate degree in School Psychology, and I bring that background to my art. I gravitate to the underrepresented in images that span a wide range of genres (seriously: live shows to documentary to street to fashion and editorials), but even my glossiest most high-fashion-style portraits are infused with my eye for nuance and emotion. I primarily use natural light to capture closed eyes, squished noses, clasped hands, fingers intertwined, wisps of hair, wild laughter, sincere tears, fear and longing, unexpected angles, deep shadows, with a bit of a throw-back feel that has been known to inspire severe nostalgia. I want to create these kinds of evocative images for you or your brand. And I promise good fun and good music in the process :)

Let's create something beautiful together.
