I may have a slight addiction to Chipotle. I really enjoy watching movies with my little one; Moana is currently stuck on repeate in my house. Or playing "geeky" games like ESO.
My biggest passion is being a Women's Intimate Portrait Photographer in Tacoma Washington. When I am not taking photos you can normally find me helping homeless vets find housing. Taking advantage of everything the Pacific North West has to offer by getting as much camping in as possible is also top of my list for summer activities.
I am a photographer because I know how much it can change your view of yourself. I have found that most women are like me. We compare ourselves to everyone we see on social media and the models in magazines. We are never happy with how we are and even when we improve we still find something to look down on.
But the truth is, our bodies are amazing, they do amazing things! Our back "fat" allows us to bend over and those stretch marks show you grew another human. We need to bring ourselves back to reality and realize that we need to love ourselves. Do what makes you happy, grow as who you are not how you think others need to see you.
I was lucky enough to have this man (Rob) come into my life at a time where I didn't see myself as my best. I didn't see the strong women I was. No matter how much of a mess I am, and trust me I am often a hot mess, he always complements me. He introduced me to a group of friends who always build me up and I only ever hear positivity from them. These are the kinds of people we need in our lives. These friends changed my life and the way I view myself. I want every women who comes into my studio should walk away with her life forever changed for the better. Knowing her worth, her beauty, her strength and loving herself more than ever before.
I have been blessed enough to work with some amazing clients who have allowed me to submit their images for publication. By working with these amazing clients I have been published in the photography magazine "Shutter Magazine" 7 times in the past few years. You can find a copy of the magazine at Barns and Nobles.
