Let me introduce myself. I am a self taught photographer who spontaneously decided I loved photography after one impromptu pin up photo shoot. My best friend had a wild idea to invite over some girls and pose just for fun. I could not put the camera down. The photos turned out so amazing I thought I would try again, and again and here I am today. I am always learning new things everyday about my craft and I am totally in love with it! 

As an intimate photographer I desire to inspire self love and increase self confidence through boudoir photography. I have seen many women regain their power in my studio and it can be an amazing transformational experience to witness yourself being feminine fearlessly. We are fierce and fiery creatures and deserve to feel that way all the time. 

I am completely amazed and obsessed with life. I feel so fortunate to have found something that fuels my passions and feeds my soul. My life as a photographer has given me the freedom to create and be creative. I am lucky that my background in ballet has trained my eye to see beautiful lines in bodies and my knowledge of how to achieve those lines is remarkable if I may say so. My shots are a reflection of my personality - sexy, fun, beautiful, and mysterious. I believe that great photos are often the result of a team effort and I value working closely with my clients and friends. I often challenge myself with new and imaginative ideas and have really big dreams. I believe my goal as a photographer is to make you dream with me. Because anything is possible!

I sleep in Emeryville California at my home studio and I am a sucker for assignments that give me the opportunity to travel. In my spare time you will see me on a hike or at the dog park with my two gorgeous Husky's. We love to howl together just for fun, play games under the sheets and eat really awesome food! But my favorite thing is their cameo appearances at almost every photo shoot (they love the camera)! 

I am proud to say that I am the official photographer for Warrior Within Designs as well as The Fishnet Follies. I am the resident photographer at Phoenix Aerial Art and Pole Studio and videographer at the Kinetic Arts Center.
