What I'm all about

I'm an adventurer & photographer primarily based in Upstate, NY but available for travel worldwide!

More importantly, I am a human being who loves hiking with friends, camping at the edge of a roaring river, waking up with the sunrise, & spending time with my fur babies, Baya & Zooey.

I have a wild imagination & genuinely appreciate the simple things in life like deep conversations beneath starry skies. Yoga & meditation keep me grounded, and spending time in nature inspires my creativity.

A few of my favorite things are tacos, seltzer and listening to Shakey Graves.

I have big dreams of living a tiny life on the road & know for certain I'm going to make it happen one day!

Say, Hey!

My approach

I've been honing my skills & craft over the last 11 years, working with all kinds of beautiful souls who have helped shape the woman & photographer that I am today.

I'm not about those posed "Pinterest" shots because let's be honest, those are totally cheesy and completely take away from the whole point of capturing this chapter of your life.

I want your photographs to look & feel just like you, which is why my approach is more documentary style. I believe that choosing the perfect location & time of day is key to setting the vibe of your session and capturing your true essence.

I want to capture photographs that reflect who you are and what your relationship is. All of the quiet, vulnerable moments that no one else usually sees. The loud and goofy moments, like a quick booty grab when no one is looking. The way that you look at each other & interact. All of the tiny details that make you, you!

The experience is what matters most, the photos are just proof that it happened!

Who We Help

Trees For The Future is an international development non-profit organization dedicated to ending extreme hunger & poverty across Sub-Saharan Africa by revitalizing degraded lands through Forest Garden systems. Farmers are trained to plant and manage Forest Gardens that provide families with sustainable food resources, livestock feed, products to sell, fuel wood and up to a 400 percent increase in their annual income.

Through planting trees, we reverse environmental degradation, restore biodiversity, and remove megatons of greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. So far Tress For The Future has planted over 149 million trees in dozens of countries and revitalized hundreds of thousands of acres of soil while changing countless people's lives forever.

Every donation has a direct impact on the earth and lives of the people who need it most.

Each session sold plants 100 trees

&

Every nature print sold in the print shop plants 10 trees!

 I believe we can make a difference & help restore our planet for all of our future generations to come!

 

So far we've helped Trees For The Future plant 10,060 trees!
