I am a portrait photographer intent on documenting our connections with those we love. Having lost my mother to cancer when I was in my 20's, I can speak to how important these connections are. I have been all through my family photo albums and have found just a handful of images with my mom from when I was a toddler. This gives me an intense desire to create meaningful images for other families, specifically for mothers and their children.
I grew up in Southern California and find that I am increasingly drawn back to the coast. While the light and the water are inspiring, North Carolina's coast has my heart because of the memories that my family is making there. I try to document the coastal light and surf whenever I get the chance.
I am honored to have had my work selected as a winner in several photography competitions and nominated for image of the year for a fine art photography magazine. My work has been published in print and I've had sessions featured on various blogs and online journals. Despite the very flattering accolades, it is my hope that you take away a realness and honestly from my work. I love genuine emotion, authentic connections, and classic portraits that stand the test of time.
I shoot digital photography for clients and am available for limited commissions in Raleigh and the Outer Banks. Please don't hesitate to contact me to discuss how we might be able to create something special for you.
